Buy my BBK bitch and you won't have to worry about brake ducts. Comes with all the race pads YOU'RE going to need.

Who the **** needs brakes? I ain't driving to stop, I'm driving to go places!

I need to get a decent setup before I worry about keeping them cool.

Drive like a girl = no need for brakes.
Drive like a man = need BBK w/ducting.

Simple as that.

I took the factory "scoop" in the dust shield, did some snipping to bend it out, then extended it a few inches with some aluminum sheet and rivets. Now the scoop isn't shadowed by the wheel, instead it sticks into the air stream.

I did it to one side first, then did some brake-boosting, then stopped and compared left and right rotor temps with an IR thermometer. I got significantly lower temps.

Read it here from back in 2004, with pictures, bitches:

I have no ducting as of yet... if I still crack them after that, I'm either fast or brake too much - probably the latter.

I have a pair of those Mazdacomp/SpeedSource brake ducts sitting in a box collecting dust :(
Something tells me they'll be useless with my 12.5" Brembo rotors. Should I sell them?
