why the hell is the 488's braking so much better???

technology in the rotor/ pad/ piston combination

look at the brakes in your GTB and compare them to today's standard……its light years apart

on the race cars (GT) the preferred option is steel rotors, all it takes is a mechanic not thinking straight and chips a carbon disc, plus doing pit stops can be tedious at best, having carbon discs just creates another issue. Ever notice the the F1 discs are protected with a outer shield, it would be for heat etc but also doing a lightning pit stop last thing you want is Luigi or Giuseppe ruining a race.

tell raikkonen that...

is that right.

You're quite wrong, of course, but at least I got a response to the question!

Suggesting that the brakes on my 308 aren't as good as a 488's!

Or suggesting that maybe, if I put 488 brakes on my 308 that my car would brake in the same distance.

clearly, but I'd like to know exactly what, because for a car that looks almost the same as the 458, it would be interesting to know what makes the difference. Could even be as "simple" as a better ABS system, giving better on the limit control. Who knows? Not me!

the brakes on a GTB of 1975/76 could not be anywhere near the technology of the current vehicles
