Brake Cooling ducts

I posted this thread in the Brakeworld forum....but I don't think that many people go there a whole lot. I think I can get a lot more feedback here. But basically I saw this thread on scoobymods:

http://www.scoobymods.com/forums/sho...?threadid=1664

Has anyone heard of this and/or tried it before? I see the ducts under the fog lamps...and the passage way to the brakes...but I'm no aerodynamical engineer and I don't know if the air gets dumped to the bottom of the car or gets channeled to the brakes without this piece of plastic. Thanks.

I was just wondering if they make a big difference in terms of braking and cooling the brakes. It seems like a cheap and easy was to cool rotors down. And it seems weird that some cars have it and some don't...almost like they forgot to put it on...

More like they could save a couple of bucks on each WRX and no one would notice...

^^^^Yeah i know, i almost bought the factory brake cooling ducts, until me and a couple of some friends really looked at it. This guys set up is really well directed to the rotor. I think it helps even more if you have an aftermarket rotor (like the DBA's that vent really well).
