	I don't know the actual proportion.  Both of these factors 
certainly contribute.  I _do_ believe form Dynamics class, that the 
rotors will have more effect on braking than just their mass alone.  The 
fact that it is rotating makes it more important.  You may be right, that 
the vehicle mass is more important in this case, I don't know without 
seeing the numbers.
