Re: Cryogenically Frozen Rotors

I saw a portion of a program once ( I might actually have it on tape
too) on Discovery about a company that freezes items down to absolute
zero and then warms them back up. According to the show, metal seems to
be "harder" and more able to endure stress. They mentioned "freezing"
entire engines for racers, and musical instruments too. In both cases,
the end users claim better performance from the "frozen" article.

So, if they are doing it properly, it should be a viable upgrade.
