This stuff is from my friend, he would like me ask opinions here.
Rotor diameter is 380mm, center disk made by rare-earth alloy, estimate overall weight around 8.7lbs.
the price would around 2.65k-2.7k for single disk.
It still under endurance test so they do not publish any actual photos yet.

I would like more info. Way out of my budget but would like the technical specs.

I think it's a little on the "way too much thought" side. Might as well get the car made from custom materials, or just buy an exotic vehicle.

His price was for one (or about the same price as carbon ceramic aftermarkets). I am curious as to why all the holes are needed - seems like pad life would be exceptionally short, with very high dusting - but good initial bite!

Let's show something real.
My friend research such elite stuff, initial requirement is from PAGANI.

PAGANI think if it could offer better overall performance, more shape ability, they would take it.
Because my friend carry all related material research costs, so they do not limit the applications, but their requirements are really insane and forbid to quote their standards.

Too many holes. There is not enough surface area to apply friction material.

I think they will be great in the rears for drag racing maybe in the front but on the road course I think I would invest in Spare air bags . But that's just me . I would hope they would work anyhow.
