If I remember correctly, HRE used to be banned from certain tracks because of their strength..and since then their philosphy(as I remember LMB saying)..is to strengthen wheels at the cost of weighing more(I guess this is why the P40/43 weighs quite a bit for a forged monobloc)...it just puzzles me how weight and performance can go hand in hand. I'm speaking strictly about the monobloc's as that was the discussion of the thread..I'm sure the fall line/competition is different.

Actually HRE Track Failures Are an Urban Mith

The linked thread discusses the supposed HRE "failures": http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...ht=hre+failure. Posts #10 & #16 are the best ones to read.

Yes, according to LMB, HRE has placed a fair amount of material in barrels and flanges (I believe) to increase resistance to bending. It's really a good thing as a pound or 2 per wheel doesn't mean much on the street compared to having wheels that stay round. Here is the lnk to LMB's comments on HRE weight: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showpos...75&postcount=2
