You aren't going to help anyone with your idea, by your own admission. You, yourself, admit that your progress will now come from 'twitching faster and stronger'. I guess it is time to ascend these threads and make yourself known in the Form Advice board. Lets see you develop some rookies with this advice.

In your own words, describe when hip rotation occurs and why.

Nate Sextonís hips rotate after the brace foot plants.

He begins rotation before the weight shift and strong brace. He is definitely later than most but he does begin rotating before strong brace. Strong brace is when all the weight has shifted and the front hip comes upwards. Freeze it at that point and his hips are already halfway through their rotation.

The rear leg and knee turn inwards and drops just before the full brace happens. This signifies hip rotation. Thus, hip rotation begins before foot brace.

Note something very carefully. The rear hip begins to turn before brace. This is why the knee turns inwards. That key moment happens before the weight shifts into full brace.

You are not watching the brace leg. The brace leg is on the ground before hips move. If you’re saying your timing is perfect to one frame of video, you’re lying. Edit: or you could demonstrate with a 450’ drive in slow motion?

Brace doesn't happen at the very first contact. It happens as the weight transfers such as that "crush the can" moment of Sidewinders drill. The whole foot is down and the hip starts coming upwards. That moment right there where you see pressure on the foot and the hip coming up is the "brace", not before.

Here's another of Heimberg. Again, note how his rear knee drops and turns inward. That signifies the rear hip is turning. That begins before the front foot is fully planted and the front hip coming up. Thus, again, rotation begins before brace.

Here is Eagle. Note also how his rear knee drops and turns signifying the rear hip rotating. This begins before his front foot is fully planted at brace.
