Cool. Yeah that should be cool because its also making the arms lighter which will help improve performance.
I thought this was kinda nerdy. But in the car world we get lightweight lug nuts. Do they make lightweight lock nuts? I know its not much but it helps and its connected to the drivetrain so lightening that in any way helps.
I got the titanium brake disc from gpm because it has to be spun on the shaft which reducing that weight will help increase acceleration just like a lightweight shaft or 2spd kit would. I hope its well worth it.
I want to even go further and take the brake disc to a machine shop and have them grind it down to a smaller circle.
Cause in physics you spin in a circle with your arms out you have your arms slowing you down....now pull your arms in....youll spin up almost twice the speed. Without even loosing weight. This way ill loose weight and spin up faster.
But I also got the lightweight flywheel on the way. I figure by the end of all this. Ill have the lightest r40 , at least drivetrain wise.
