The answer to this should finally be forthcoming shortly. For those that didn't know, Litchfield Imports are going to be producing a carbon splitter with proper high pressure brake ducting developed in conjunction with an F1 parts designer/manufacturer. At least that's what Iain says!
If it does what it says and has ducting right to the hub, I'm in!
Having said all that, has anyone with a decent set of discs, pads and fluid actually managed to get serious fade on a track day?
Better cooling will undoubtedly greatly aid pad longevity as well as disc, bearing and piston boot wear, but I haven't heard of anyone having to come in due to unmanageable brake overheating.
The tyres will go before the brakes IME.
But anything that can help the brakes last longer is a very good idea of course.
