Brake cooling kit

What are you guys using for a brake cooling kit? I've got a 96 Cobra and will remove the fog lights to duct in from the round holes. Does anyone know if the SVTPerformance guy still makes his? The phone number I found on the web is disconnected.

I do recall hearing that the dude (something starting with an A, I think, maybe Anthony?) stopped making the kits.

Thanks, for $60, it sounds like he was doing it for free...I wouldn't keep that up long either...

I can still build the kits, it was either build parts for other people or finally get the ITE race car I bought four years ago back on the race track. I was tired of watching racing on tv and seeing a very capable race car collect dust.

My race car is running, race schools are complete so I have some spare time now.



I started building brake cooling kits in 2006, when I got sniped on ebay after almost winning a set of '00 Cobra R brake ducts. I said hell with this, brake cooling doesnt have to cost $100 or more. So I fabbed a set of backing plates for myself. I posted pics on svtp of what I had done and one guy asked if I could build him a set.

Thank you,

Anyway you could post a pic of yours? I'm looking at getting one soon since I'll be in there doing a brake job. What size ducting is it, and does it aim at the rotor face or hat (heck, which one IS better anyway?)

OP, the only one I found for reasonable amount was Quantum Motorsports and its $175 for the 3" race kit. I'm no mathematician but $100 sounds a lot better than $175!

Here are the pics. The duct placement is a compromise, but its packaged well inside the space given. Delivery of the air to just the center of the rotor would require either a different backing plate design or use of composite material. I can do either but then my goal of providing an affordable backing plate setup goes out the window.

Is cooling to the center of the rotor preferred over cooling of the disc?

Maybe for keeping the bearings/hub cool over keeping the disc cool?

What diameter sizing is that hose?

Does this completely replace the factory dustcover, or do you cut a hole in it and mount this as well?

What kind of hose is that, and will that stand up to racing and DD usage?

Sorry for the all the questions, just excited about finally being able to do this!

Are you selling these kits again? I want a set if you are! I've been following your thread on svtp.com but never read whether you were back in business or not.

I don't supply the hoses any more but I will give you a link to where I bought them from. Theyre great quality high temp hoses and the price is the best Ive found anywhere online. Everything else is still included in the kit.

The stock dust shield is completely removed then the backing plate is bolted on in its place.

Sorry for the confusion the top pic is comparing my old backing plate design to the new oval design.

My setup is designed for 3" diameter hoses.

If youre interested in a set of backing plates, email me at

[email protected]

or pm me over at SVTperf

Thumbsup.

I'm running a set of Kenny Brown, which do a great job, but the OVAL flange where the hose connects is a @#$%^$ to get the hose on...

Thumbsup for round holes!

Great, when I needed them I came looking for you. You stopped making them. I ended up buying backing plates from Quantum. I found a 12' piece of high heat duct on Ebay and made my own scoops for my GT.

Tell us how you really feel

ramnstang - Is this by chance the hose you use? Everywhere I look the hose looks exactly like this, so I'm wondering if there is just one or two manufacturers and everyone just sells them under a different name : GS -  www.ducting.com

More hose options here, looks like I should use either the GS or CWGS : Flexible Automotive, Automobile and Motor vehicle Hose and Ducting Products

Any thoughts? Seems like the manufacturer name is Flexaust, and I could swear I found some for pretty cheap, like $75 for 12 feet, that way you'd have extra I suppose.

My sincerest apologies. I had to take a break. I couldnt take listening to all you guys talk about the tracks you were going to be running at when ordering a set of my backing plates and then seeing my race car sitting in peices after owning it for four years. I wont even mention the guys that were stationed over in Germany and were going to Nurburgring!!

How dare you have a life outside of making parts for us!

Seriously though, let me know if you are interested in making some, and where did you find the cheapest source for the hose? I'd love to be able to do this for cheaper than $175 just by sourcing the hose elsewhere, and getting the plates from you or making them myself.
