Does anyone know a company that makes lightweight rotors for our car? I am definetly looking to free up some drivetrain horsepower. Any other ideas would be great!

You mean carbon ceramic like a Ferrari?
The rotors/pads will cost more than your car !

heres an idea go buy the roja formula 5 rims 17X 7.

or the dr8s 17 x 7.
those are lightweight r ims shed anywhere between 7-9 lbs per wheel.
using the unsprung mass rule u can shed anywhere between 100 (conservative) to 180 lbs (extremely optimistic) effective weight

Hi OwAce,

Did you buy those RoJas from Andy Brenner at Wheel Discounters like I suggested?

I always thought that titanium, although light and strong had really bad problems with shear stresses, or turning forces. Thats why there aren't any titanium screws, and any titanium rotor will warp faster than anything.

what you are looking for are 2-piece rotors (they are much lighter than 1-piece rotors). not sure if anyone makes them for the 7th gen. if you do happen to find them, they will be very expensive.
