That would seem like the most logical solution. Can't really make the inner plate any thinner or it may not hold up to wear n tear as well. Don't want to remove to much weight from the outer ring as it may affect the gyro technology.

So it would appear the easiest way to reduce weight is to reduce overall size of the disc. But then I would assume it would require a new mold as well, being a smaller diameter. Financially this may not be the best option either.

Maybe lightweight MVP's are only a dream, who knows.
