While that sounds very exciting, I doubt that it would work. Unlike
rotors on just about any other vehicle, the UFOs are not a single
piece. The rotor itself is mounted to a spider that looks quite a
bit like a cheesy steel wheel from through the basket weave BBSs.
I'd think you'd have to disassemble the UFO assembly to be able to
attempt to rebuild them.
