Default What's the lightest weight rotor, caliper?

For a WRX, don't have to be the same company, calipers have to fit 16" wheels and rotors for 5x100 hubs.

I have an idea but i'm not sure of my sources or the thickness of the rotors, so post up some documented or measured weights please:

Stock: 22lbs
Performance friction: 17.5lbs
Racing Brake 12.3lbs
DBA 5000?


Thanks

I would drop Todd TCE a line. I'm guessing that you can find some super light Wilwood calipers, and then find some two-piece DBA rotors or something similar (I forget if those are actually lighter).

IIRC, the 328x28 Stoptech kit is 1 lb total lighter than the stuff it replaces but that violates the 16" requirement.

The Wilwood LBK with poly d pads would be kick ass autox material. And fit 16s.
