Lightweight Brake Rotors and Drums

Does anyone have a p/n for lightweight brake rotors and drums for the GK? Also, would be nice to have a corresponding weight associated with said parts. I found an OEM replacement rotor to be 12.15 lbs at 10.3" diameter and .81" thickness. I see that Coleman sells custom rotors, and am considering getting an estimate from them. Are the fit rotors considered floating or solid? Are there lightweight calipers as well? The fit does not have a lot of horsepower so I'm trying to shed unsprung weight...
Cheers,
d

Coleman has two types of rotors in their custom section, floating and solid mount. Which would anybody say the GK Fit has, floating, or solid mount?

Fit rotors are solid mount (not floating).

Personally, I like heavier/thicker than factory rotors, but I'm not trying to eek out an extra tenth on a road course.
