New rotor technology from Ferodo
« on: January 26, 2005, 04:47:22 pm »
My sponsor just announced their newest rotor technology - Ceramic Matrix Composite:
http://www.2wf.com/articles/news/48FF9A1D-6ECD-4A45-8D6E-5F7E511F99B5.asp

Lighter than Iron, stronger than Carbon.

Their pricey, but seriously a drop in the gyroscopic weight or less than Magnesium wheels.  

Currently they are not allowed in the AMA, so don't expect them in CCS anytime soon.

Do or do not, there is no "try".

From the looks of them they would be SB legal but not SS.

Just spreading the word.  I saw them last year at the Dealers Expo and they were definitely trick.  I would probably consider buying them instead of magnesium wheels.
