Joe, >I don't think you can simply isolate the effectiveness of brakes from the >size/mass of the rotors. The issue being discussed can be isolated from the rest if we assume that the caliper/rotor geometry and pad materials are similarly optimized. >From Eric's earlier post, it sounds as if we can assume approximately a 30% reduction in the weight of the aluminum rotors compared to standard rotors in a similar application. Does anyone know the approximate weight of a standard rotor? By the way, if the math supports these rotors having a significant effect on braking, I would expect a greater (as a percentage) effect on acceleration. Interesting.
