A worthwhile and cost effective upgrade is to fit braided brake hoses. These give the pedal a much firmer feel and, when combined with decent pads and brake fluid, take the brakes from being adequate to pretty decent.
Braided hoses are available but don’t seem to be listed anywhere. I have used Goodridge hoses in the past and can recommend them. The kit of four hoses is part number 27004 and can be bought directly from Goodridge (call them and ask for retail sales). In 2011 I paid a little under £80 delivered to my door.
Note these will fit 360 and F430 cars with steel brakes. I do not know if they fit CCM equipped cars.
I cannot stress the importance of bleeding the brakes regularly. The maintenance schedule calls for annual changes but if cars are tracked then more frequent changes may be needed. Lack of fluid changes has been known to gum up the flexible brake hoses.
Changing the fluid is very easy and can be a one man job if a power bleeder is used. I have a Sealey VS820 – you fill it with fresh fluid, attach it to the reservoir and pump up the pressure. Then each of the bleed nipples on the calipers can be drained in turn until fresh fluid comes through.
Here’s a picture of the power bleeder in action:
