Re: Grilles

I have fog light area sized ones I'll be using whenever I get around to installing brake cooling lines in that space.

They're good at keeping trash out. And really don't look bad. Me personally, I'd color match it to the car or pick a not-so contrasting color.

Re: Grilles

Ima do some oval inlets connected to hose that has a sorta Y shaped outlet end terminating near the rotors to blow air across them while moving.

When I first got the ole gal there were no covers for when you don't have fog lights.
Daryl hooked me up with a source for covers, but before installing some I 'napkin' designed some cooling ducts. Heck, back then I didn't know there were covers (or foglights for that matter) and figured someone before me had done it.

Re: Grilles

I thought it was gonna be some liquid deal, I got scared...
maybe consider the nsx calipers to boot? they look like more of a heatsink and they would love that air... just shave the nsx badge off the caliper!!

Well we'd looked into the $275 ea used nsx rotors and some junkyard acura rotors. But further modifications than I'm comfortable with caused me to say "nah"...plus it aint a jen-you-wine bykfixer mod like brake ducts would be.

Re: Grilles

Will this thing spring into action when u depress the brake pedal or the gas pedal when coming out of a turn, I suppose preparing your brakes for the next turn..
This is an interesting concept, I'll let u have at it. My mind's already having visions of an air compressor and a small air tank with piping that releases a blast every time you step on brake pedal
Sorry to derail thread.. Talk about air brakes tho!!

Re: Grilles

A napkin drawing:
Encore edition;



It shows round tubing but the thought is the ends would be made out of the metal ac ducts uses.

Keep in mind it's just a theory for cooling brakes of a car that doesn't get driven in rain.
