Hope to post some more build pictures shortly.
I come from a MTB background so it could make for an interesting couple of months firstly trying to build it up and then learning how to ride it !!
I competed in a couple of Duathlons at the end of 2012 on my mountain bike which turned a few heads (funny seeing my Scott Scale RC racked up next to full blown Time Trial bikes).
The full aero boys couldn't keep up on the hills but left me for dead on the flat where the aero advantage kicked in (and I ran out of gears/stamina).
The instructions stated that only a Shimano 7800 rear brake would fit so I promptly ordered one. It fits perfect but I'm pretty sure 7900 would of fitted.
The pads and holders supplied with the 7800 brake weigh approx 35.7g for the pair with aluminium compatible pads.
I've changed them for KCNC holders and Zipp Tangente Platinum Pro pads which weigh approx 28.2g
Not a huge saving in weight but the saving would of been a lot greater had I not needed carbon compatible pads which are approx 6g heavier
Just received my TriRig Omega front brake so I'll post some photos of it shortly
Changing to titanium bolts will knock off a few 10's of grams as there are 8 bolts in total.
Does anyone supply a lighter alternative for my Plasma 3 TT DI2 which will still look good?
First, only the team bikes(Plasma 3 TT) got that particular stem if I recall correctly. So, I don't believe the standard stem would fit, seen here:

Second, that stem is specific to that aerobar, so if you change the stem, you will have to change bars.
If you really want to change, I guess try experimenting or contact Scott. I'd guess that one is your only option.
Just been playing with the TriRig Omega front brake which looks great.
It came supplied with a bag containing the latest modifications which was a simple task to fit
With Zipp carbon specific pads and the supplied steel M6 40mm bolt kit it weighs in at 132grams.
Struggling to find a hex (10mm socket size) M6 x 40mm titanium bolt to replace the supplied steel one. Any ideas? The guy from TriRig couldn't help.
Try here for the bolt.
The front TriRig brake complete with Titanium bolts and Zipp carbon specific pads came in at 126 grams
The rear Shimano 7800 brake complete with Titanium brake nut, KCNC pad carriers and Zipp carbon specific pads came in at 146 grams
The titanium hardware basically offset the extra weight of the Zipp carbon specific brake pads.
Looks like I'm heading towards a 8Kg total weight including Zipp 404/808 wheels, Shimano Dura-Ace 7970 Di2 TT changers/mechs and 7900 gearing.
