    No it doesn't.

    Hecklers (like all single pivots) try to squat under rear braking.

    The only affect the rotor size will have is better leverage on the wheel for stopping power.The bigger the rotor,the less you will have to pull the brake lever and the better the modulation will be.

    The bigger the rotor, the more heat that will be dissapated.
