Love the thought of not seeing a bit of rust on the hubs... however... powder coating is put on for 20 minutes @ 395 degrees F. Is this going to do anything to the discs (warpage, etc?). They build up the heat (goes down to about 345 when the big door of the oven is opened... then they hold it for 20 minutes when it reaches 395. Rolled out and cooled in room temperture (about 70 degrees F).
I have no idea what temp the rotors reach under normal/hard braking?
