Well it as been a while since my last post about disc and caliper temperatures.
I found out that, I can control really efficiently the cooling of the front discs with the existing setup.
But less about the calipers who are taking 190 deg C heat peak.
So I went on, adding a second scoop each side and tubing directed at the calipers.

Made some brake pad stainless steel shims as well, to lessen the heat transfer to the pistons.

And closed half of the lower radiator openings as the scoops being in the way, no need for debris to get lodged behind and maybe streamline the body a touch.[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
I will see the end result in 3 weeks at the next race meeting. Fingers crossed !
I apologize for not having pictures about how the brake dust's covering the side gills ( air flow ). I keep forgetting about it until the car as been clean by me or my helper !! I must say that the new pads I am using are not dusty/dirty at all, for the better.
