There is a new rotor type and design coming out for the Hellcats/390mm rotors that will take light weight to a new level.
Where is this info coming from?

Not many yet, and I shouldn't hi-jack this thread
Hey bull
Will your source be making rotors in the 360mm size( demon front rotors) ? I am waiting patiently but until then I'm happy with my current set up

Likely, although probably not with the initial announcement.

Demand will certainly drive follow-on fitments.

I'm here now . I know we talked before about these new rotors but it's been awhile. I'm not going to pry but I will be waiting patiently. I am one of those guys that thinks "out side the box" and all these "little" thing add up eventually and that's what I like .

*as with any unreleased design, specs not only subject to change, but likely will, in either direction... For example, an early design was even lighter, but didn't pass Patent scrutiny

Currently:
~1/3 mass of O.E. (390mm reference)
~1/2 wear of O.E.
Equal or better heat capacity than CF
Less expensive than CF
More durable than CF
Patented/proprietary MMC alloy


Here's another exciting piece:

Two teams have been selected for Beta testing, ~two more are being sought after. Selection will be based on many factors. Rotors will have to be returned for eval.

If it is publicly patented info, what's the aggregate in the MMC?

If not public, then I'm not even asking.
Too soon... Just from a strategic standpoint

(How well do you know your relavent alloy mass ratios?)

;)
 

Speedy!
