Re: Cryogenically Frozen Rotors

There is a little info on Page 226 of the September issue of Sport Compact
Car.  In building a 600HP engine for a 300ZX they were using it to
(paraphrasing here) completely stress relieve the block by increasing the
amount of martensite carbide inclusions within the metal.  Supposedly
increases hardness, tensile strenght, yada, yada.
