Default student research on new rotors. need your opinions

Hey, I am the MBA student from Michigan Tech University, currently; we did a project on our new researched steel clad aluminum (SCA) brake rotors, but we are still in the beginning of the marketing stage. So I really need the valuable opinions from you!!! How much should we charge in the market in your preference? Are any other concerns about this brakes rotors? The detailed information are in the below


SCA brake rotor is a patent pending new product featuring an attached aluminum wheel as the major brake heat sink and radiator, utilizing greater thermal expansion of rotor in disk thickness to create "force-free pad retraction" , and employing cladding made of a better steel with multiplicity of slots to increase braking friction. In comparison with the current cast iron brake rotors on the market today, the SCA rotor has the following merits:
30% to 50% weight reduction
Less brake pad drag
Better gas mileage by up to 10% to 15%
Faster heat dissipation and lower braking
temperatures
Greater corrosion resistance
No heat dissipation degradation due to
rusting
> 30% less wear on brake pads
Double lifetime of brake rotor
Shorter stop distance
Faster car acceleration
More precise steering due to un-sprung
weight reduction


The SCA rotor has passed the FMVSS-135 certification test and expects to last over 10 years or 100,000 miles under normal driving conditions. Considering the savings in brake replacement costs and the increase in gas mileage, installation of the SCA rotor on your vehicle means saving a few hundred dollars on gas every year as well as upwards of several hundred dollars in brake repair costs during the lifetime of the vehicle. These savings make SCA rotors a wise investment.

50$ per rotor not more. first you need to build a name! after raise a price!

Well i would say since they last a long time, and would not rust since they are aluminum. I would be willing to spend maybe $10 more than current cast rotors. But it depends on the price of the materials and overhead to determine your cost.

That is pretty impressive. Obviously less brake dust as well. I'm interested! I'm looking forward to hearing more
