Yes they use adonized hats.<p>T6-6061 5000tons cold forged aluminum.<p>They use the largest aluminum hat possible, for the maximum reduction in unsprung weight.

It would be alot less rotating mass. Say the rotors are 5lbs lighter. Then you times that by 3 i beleave it is. So it's like there is 15lbs less for the motor to move on each corner.

Re: WP 2 peice stock diameter front rotor upgrade (Penguin)

Not here, $1600 for 4 rotors of stock size would be too pricey for me to justify.
