Tech, I don't know, thats the point of this thread. Can anyone compare or relate this to say "whp" gain or how much the car would feel lighter by?

Thanks.
It's hard to answer your question quantitatively, especially in terms of a "whp" gain.

However, in my case, consistently lower lap times (delta depends on the track) and decreased rotor/caliper temps (firmer and consistent brake pedal, better pad wear, etc) are enough for me to justify a light wheel-tire setup. Plus being able to pickup a wheel-tire combo with one arm in the paddock sure makes changing wheels, pads and rotors a lot easier....
