It's probably obvious, but these fit over sport brakes right?

Indeed these calipers have seen things and been places.

Assembling bits slowly for a much needed rotor and caliper upgrade down the road.

New updates have arrived for our brake ducts! Thanks to you guys, we are now manufacturing at a higher volume (still in the U.S.) , laser etching our logos and enlisted the help of robots to perform the welding!

ABS with the big 3" brake ducts is a tight squeeze with the ABS sensor's wiring. Customer Russell Garner figured out that if you unbolt the sensors and swap the left sensor to the right side of the car and vice versa, they clear with room to spare:

Sensor in its standard position with the 3" duct, wiring gets squeezed:



Left and Right sensors swapped:

Good tip. I thought about doing that but didn't try it as there was juuust enough room to get the duct on, and the hose and clamp installed.

Todd C from Texas has logged about 100 hours and counting with his endurance car using our 3″ brake ducts. After a “fair” test Todd reported the following:

Quote:
I have been using your 3″ brake ducts now for about 2 years, and have logged ~100 hours on them endurance racing. Overall, I’m pretty happy with them. I went from melting XP12’s in 8 hours to having the ability to use brake pads for a few enduros if I wanted to. I recently ran the World Racing League race at COTA in February where we slowed from ~110 to ~40 mph 3 times approximately every 3 minutes plus the usual braking zones here and there to “keep the heat in”. I wanted to quantify the new braking system, so I placed brake temperature stickers at the back of the caliper, directly behind the piston. Based on the documentation on your website, I ran stickers that had a range of 390-450°F, but to my surprise, I was unable to activate the sticker on either day which means that the actual temp was some value less than 390°F. I must say I’m quite impressed with that result. I think your brake ducts give us a competitive advantage over some of the other cars we race against because we can deeper in the brake zones for the entire race without having to compromise during anyone’s stint.
