I wish I could get brake ducting done by the next few track days but I don't think it will.
Ducting is easy. Call up Savington, order a kit. Take off rotor, remove old dust shield, bolt on prawns. Clamp hose to inlet, zip tie it to the tie rod, and route to the mouth or foglight openings or whatever you have available. Done. Oh, you should probably put the rotor back on too.

You have dust shields still? I had to cut the crap out of mine to fit 1.8 rotors. They're kinda dished, so fitting ducting might be hard. Plus they are aluminum if I'm not mistaken, so attaching things would be tedious...
<p>Twas a joke. I'm waiting to upgrade all the way to 11.75 brakes.</p><p>Also. I feel blessed:</p><p><img src="http://cimg7.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.miataturbo.net-vbulletin/1146x1171/80-uiqbifj_ac5ee2b222dbb49716c864ac9c366a7fd74f5316.p ng" title="" /><br /><br /> </p>
<p>You take a cylinder, rivet angle aluminum onto it. Then rivet that to the plane.</p><p>The car eventually will get Willwoods and brake ducts. It just isn't in the budget right now, and I was hoping to wait. If I can ghetto rig for a bit I will be happy.</p>
<p>Carnage time </p><p><br /><br /><br /><br /></p><p>Going to be running used cobalts during the week and the track day july 3rd. I'll inspect them after that and see how much they wore. If they wear too much I will get some street pads and track pads.</p>
Aiden, those are serious track pads, none of this compromising bull ****. They will kill your rotors, the dust is corrosive, and they'll have fairly horrible wear on the street. They're for track days and occasional canyon carving.
Also, they will hold that grip from cold to hot, new to backing plate. That's the beauty of cobalts.
Yes sir! They're staying on for now because it have a track day in a week. After that I will get some cheapos for day to day. Good to know my issue was pads though. I measured these before putting em in and will measure when I pull them out. Then I can gauge wear.
I'm guilty of that, almost completely ground a backing plate away, there was like 1/16 of an inch left keeping the piston from rotor. My excuse was it was a real POS truck with a slipping trans, and it was winter with no garage, I'm not lying in the friggen' snow to fix that crap lol I lived in the middle of nowhere, passed two or three cows on my way to work. I'm not really that much of a badass
