Brake Calipers leaking

I track two 1st gen cars, and 3 out of 4 front calipers have started leaking after just a few events.

Is this a common problem? I'm not running brake ducts yet. Could excess heat cause this failure?

depends on where they leak, but if it's at the seals, hell yeah high heat can do that, the seals are rubber..

In Pro 7 I would rebuild my front calipers, repack front wheel bearing with Redline grease after each weekend. I ran the MazdaComp brake ducts, and brought the fresh air tube from the opening where the front blinkers were orginally.

Its your brakes, you can't stop with them, unless your target is body damage/
