The A8 rotors are 323x30 and I can confirm they are definitely heavy! In the 
area of 24 lbs each! The 996 monoblocs are much lighter than the G60's so 
I'm hoping unsprung weight doesn't increase by too much. I think I remember 
seeing a weight comparison somewhere and it was pretty much a saw-off. Don't 
quote me on that though!

It's actually "lang", right?  German for long?  I thought the diameter

I still intended to put a pair of those rotors on my 200q20v, with RS2
brackets, and 993tt calipers, now that I can fit them under the 18"s.
Unless I hear of some accurate and compelling reason not to, of
