There are ways around losing weight with the stock style front brakes.
I managed to drop 3lbs per rotor on my car and have no adverse affects

Baers can be had over a little over 400 shipped from WS6 store

Its rotational weight and offers better braking performance. Nice gain if you have some extra coin.

675$ gets you the entire front brake kit including pads for aerospace...and they have a street/strip setup so you can safely use it on the street without the worry of brake fade that you'd have with a full race setup.

I've been trying to find the weight difference for the street/strip setup. I've read that its about 38lbs savings with their race version. I'd like to hope the street version saves atleast 20lbs
