Re: Brake rotor cooling
Wow. Great information.
I have learned that the front brakes are a JFZ 4 piston caliper. Rotors are 12.19" x 1 1/4" 8 bolt on 7 3/8" (?). I found a shop that ordered me a set.
Incuded here are some pictures. What I am trying is to make a fiberglass duct that fits between the radiator frame and head light box and up to the scoop to the side of the radiator inlet.
I have a 1 1/2 " space to work with, so my duct is 1 1/2 x 9", 13 sq in. I don't have to cut anything.
I am using aircraft foam as a core, which is easy to sand into shape then clean out with a rotory wire brush. It has to be in two parts, one in the nose and one on the body shell. I will then connect a 3" hose to direct the air into the center of the rotor.
I live near Mooresville NC where are more racing supply shops than you can imagine. I think I can find that duct pictured here.
Does this look feasable?
