The CTS-V rotors are actually 2 lbs lighter than the ZL1 rotors. The RB rotors are even lighter and to run about 150 degrees cooler which is good. I plan on doingCztS-V setup for more stopping power andbrake ducts later if needed for cooling.

gonna be honest. with your power you need as much raw stoping power as you can get. weight should be a concern after safety (braking). i am sure you will have some sticky icky tires to and learn to feather that peddle

Then on to the brakes.

I was an ALO for 2 years way back in 92. I had to do it to transition from the A-10 to Viper once Myrtle Beach AFB was shut down. So i am quite familiar with FIST teams and FOs. This ALO tour was my AF appreciation tour. Never whined about thing after it was over. I wish some of the things on this car were free, sadly nothing has been

Yep, got in around 1600, went over to see Heath. Plan to meet up at 0830 or so. We can do the ZL1 sway and control arms to start then the 12kg coils and camber plates when they show up. Deb says should be around 1030 - 1100.
