Default Carbon brake rotors

Carbon rotors weigh 5+ times less than steel!

They work awesome!

The draw back is that they wear really fast and now are very expensive to make. (Correctly)


WRD2 had a set up called C2C which used carbon pads as well. That set up was 20 times lighter than stock steel disks with steel backers & pads. (and in the case of Kyosho's ACRE pads were 40+ times lighter.

Just FYI
