Default Ducting on Corrado rotors?

I have been reading on this for several hours, and still no definite answer.

I currently have the Corrado in the front / sport rotors in the back - with proper adapters on stock calipers.

* Do the Corrado rotors pull the air from the outside towards the hub?

* Can brake ducting be effectively applied to Corrado rotors?

* If yes, where should the cooling duct be dumping?

I now have the answers to the questions above.

Corrado rotors in the front / sport rotors in the back - shod with ordinary ceramic Raybestos street pads do in fact stand up to a 30 minute beating on a 5.3 Km F1 track on a hot June day with a homemade cooling duct system.

My best lap was 2:44, equaling a very expensive Corvette, and placing in the top 10 or 12 in a field of 150+ cars - on my very first day, and in the span of 6 hot laps, no less.

I'm no racer, but I am proud of what I have accomplished in a field of 40 cars on the track where 3 cars have wrecked and one flipped.

Ducting Corrado rotors will help them just not as well as rotors designed to be ducted from the back. I thought somebody made cheap replacement Corrado rotors that fed air from the back. The ducting on the stock Corrado rotors sucks making them not as helpful as there added mass would suggest.

I outgrew Corrado wildwood Dynalight combo about 8 years ago. Actually Cracked several of them, Brembo and ATE. Probably work better as long as you have sport brakes in the rear however.

I'll see if I can switch to Mini rotors.
