FD brake ducts for cooling?

Okay, so when I search, I find really old threads with a lot of dead links. Does anyone know where to find some cooling ducts for the front of the FD? Ones that attach behind the hub, like a replacement backing plate type? Thanks

No FD specific application is currently available. You'll need to roll your own.

N-Tech used to make hub backing plates—may still. At the nose, you're on your own, and then hose routing is a challenge with clearance for the tire.

Long thread, but PM "S14.3REW" about ordering a set of backing plates from him. Hes making them in either fiberglass or CF. You are on your own about attaching some sort of tubing or hose from the backing plate to the nose of the car, but its not that big of an issue.

Damian has a very impressive brake setup on his car. I believe he designed and constructed the whole thing himself.
