Default Brake Rotor Weight (Stock vs Aftermarket)?

Hi,
I did a search on this and nothing came up.
Does anyone know the weight difference between stock Z06 brake rotors and aftermarket Baer Eradispeed 2 piece rotors?
I'm curious about the weight savings.
Thanks,
Silverbird

Checked that out before.
Doesn't show the Baer Eradispeeds and Z06 rotor mass.
Just the factory base rotors.

In case you're looking at other options:

Best two-piece rotors that I know of are the Coleman's. I just installed a full set from Zip and saved 32lbs of rotating mass. Pretty significant. I installed them with new Hawk 5.0 pads. Very happy so far.

Most two-piece are 10 lbs lighter for fronts and 6-8 for rears. I have Coleman but there a few other brands.

I have them at Front= 26.8 lbs., rear=21.1 lbs.

When you want to get serious about your brakes, please give our AP Racing options a look. Our brake kits can shave as much as 8-10 unsprung lbs. per corner (in addition to all of the other benefits)! Our kits are like having the carbon ceramic disc option without all the headaches and cost.

Coleman are the lightest, and I think Racing Brake 2-piece are the closest second as far as weight savings go.

Coleman and racing brake fronts save you 20lbs...after bump front wheel returns to pavement noticeably faster....rear Coleman save 6 lbs each..
