Re[2]: Starship rotors & Drilling

     FWIW: Drawing an analogy with electronic component heat sinks. A lump of 
     metal is only able to dissipate a fixed amount of power for a given 
     temperature gradient. In still air whether the lump of metal has a complex 
     series of fins or is just a rectangular shape has little effect on the 
     amount of power that can be dissipated. It is only when air is forced over 
     the surface of the heat sink that the design of the heat sink has an effect 
     - and a well designed heat sink will dissipate substantially more power for 
     a given temperature gradient than a poorly designed one.
     My first step would be to try and increase the air flow to the brakes.
