it depends on the rotor's actual weight..... 2 piece rotors are way lighter because they use an aluminum hat vs machined metal 1 piece....a heavy rotor isnt always a bad thing.....

Yes, they are lighter...by an ounce or two. If that. You'll *NEVER* notice.

2 piece aluminum hat rotors are a different story...

difference between heavy rotors and hevy wheels is that heavy rotors actually do some good -- they dissipate heat from the braking surface. Heavy wheels don't do anything good for you.
