Brake Cooling Kits???

Anyone know of a manufacture who makes a front brake cooling kit for our cars yet? Gonna take the ride on a couple of open track sessions in the very near future, and I'd like a little extra cooling for the brakes....

I haven't seen anything yet. I was going to remove my front bumper cover sometime this week and look at the plumbing and where the air gets channeled around down there...

I think it averages it out over a period of time. I've had the same light come on when leaving the car running on a hill only to then go back to near the full mark once I started driving on flat roads.

I've already changed the oil 3 times and I'm at 11,000km...lol.

The brake cooling ducts are already in place. If you want extra cooling get drilled and slotted rotors.

Like above, drilled and slotted rotors are probably your best bet.
I heard new brake pads are worthwhile as well, Cool Carbon being the ones I hear most.
Who is that on your avitar?
