Default Brake Cooling Ducts

Im thinking of carbon fibre products to make and thought about the brake ducts. Are these popular?



Also what about carbon STi winglets?

Thats good to hear mate this is what I like to do, bring the hard to get hold of parts from overseas and make them here so its cheaper for everyone else

More the race style then I can definately do all of them mate it'll just take a bit of time to get the parts, have them moulded and then start manufacturing

No idea till I get them but it'll be a hell of a lot cheaper than getting them from overseas, im working on splitters at the moment a chargespeed style one for hawk that'll fit hawk and blob plus a standard universal one which will be a flat sheet of carbon or fibreglass rounded to the shape of the bumper.

Carbon mudflaps wouldnt really work, carbon is solid and im not sure about your car but mine catches the mudflaps all the time......the carbon would either crack/snap or the mudflap would pull off the car. Exhaust trim isnt a problem, got that one on my to-do list

Interested in also the option to purchase singular
Which can also be used as a air intake feed to the air box/ cone filter.

Fit a 76mm feed from the back to connect to normally used ducting and you will double the market potential.

thats a bloody good point, on that basis, like dragons den, "I'm out". No space with APS DR725 front mount I'm afraid.

If there is no space but we have a number of you guys with FMIC interested in a set I can always try to modify them so they'll fit, nothing is impossible

I'm looking for a pair of the APR Naca ducts, but way more expensive than they should be!

I thought that APS FMIC's will work with the standard fog light in place - that being the case shouldn't these ducts also be able to be installed?

I have an APS DR525 which allows the fitment of the fog lights with plenty of clearance around them as well, just a thought.
