FC brake cooling ideas.

I am looking for some ideas on how you have routed brake cooling ducts on your FCs.

I have 255s on the front of my FC with stock fenders so there is not much real estate in the front wheelwells. I also do not have a splitter right now, so I can't run the ducts under the bumper. I also have an LS1 in the car so my swaybar is moved down an inch and slightly forward.... any ideas?

The stock cooling ducts are functional and installed in the bumper/fenderwell and I have the rotor dust shields removed, but I'd like to get some direct cooling to the rotors.

Thanks, that helps. I have an S4 so the integration with front fascia and OEM ducting will be a bit different.

I welded a pipe to angle so the tire does not crush the flex hose when in the paddock

I only install the hose on mine when I'm at the track but they do rub near lock... any holes I make can easily be taped up though
