Exige V6 front cooling duct


Recommended Posts

Hello Guys, I notice brake starts to fade after 4-5 hot laps. Car has DBA rotors with endless pads. Don't want to drill holes and route from the front so i design and 3d printed a duct that fits under lower A arms. Air outlet can't get any closer to the rotor otherwise it would hit when turn at full lock. Will do more testing and possibly make one in carbon fiber. Any opinions would be appreciated 🙂 thx

Hi Wilson,

I have never done a track day so cannot really comment, but the idea looks like a good solution. It will be interesting to see if it helps with brake fade.

^ That! Use as narrow a gauge as you dare to not hamper the airflow too much.
