    Focus ST brake cooling - Velossa Tech

    Hey everyone.

    I wanted to share some pictures with you guys. @Kevin and the guys at PHAST are the real crew for testing. They have been paramount in the development of the most effective brake cooling solution now available for the Focus ST. Hours upon hours of data has been collected on their cars, driven in the heat of Arizona to the very limit. The answer is simple, you want cooler brakes, less fade, better recovery coming out of hard turns, all of the above?

    Go with the track tested, track proven system that we now offer. Velossa Tech brake cooling stage 2 is available now, stage 1 and 3 coming soon.


    I wanted to share the pictures with you guys. We were testing our flagship stage 2 system as well as other methods of brake cooling which we will release at a later time. For now, enjoy the pictures!!

    I haven't installed mine yet due to a new job and hectic schedule and it's winter time. But this kit is really well made and you can tell when you open it up and hold the different parts. Cannot wait for track/autox season

    This looks really promising. I have custom brake ducts on my GT500, they have held up great over two years of track and street use. I actually like the brake ducting idea over airflow scoops.

    How exactly do you get around the ECU on the left? And tranny on the right? Both seem like incredibly narrow junctions, and tight bend in front of ECU, so not exactly sure how to fit 3" hose thru each of those spots on my own.

    Also does the kit come with the orange hi temp tubing that is sort of standard for this sort of thing, or the lower temp black/gold tubing that is pictured? Is it 3", or 2.5"?

    Also, is it an easy thing for the fog lights to be swapped back in for the ducts in the fog light housing in between track days?

    Do you have the kit? How has it been working for you on track? How low have rotor and/or caliper temps dropped?

    Which ducting does it come with, the lower temp dark neoprene that are in the kit pics on their website, or the higher temp orange silicone hose that was in some of the on track pics on this thread?

    It looks like the outflow duct is aimed right at the inner disc face rather than the hat. Can this be adjusted to direct into the hat area, or is it fixed to point only on the disc?

    I have 28 session and they work very well. Rotor recovery is excellent and it prolongs time before rotor heat soak. They are not adjustable but if you're savvy you could probably modify them to you need. I'd try them out as is first. 28 sessions and I have not over heated my breaks. Realize this depends on the track, lap track, and the skill of the driver. Everything has a fail point, this definitely prolongs brake life.

    Thanks Kevin. What tracks have you been running? Lots of long straights with heavy braking zones, or more technical? Elevation? And at what level are you driving? (intermediate, advanced, TT/competition?) Sorry for ongoing questions, I'm just trying to gauge severity of brake use...

    My experience has been that the more technical tracks we have here, Sonoma and Thunderhill 5, show higher rotor and caliper temps on THIS car than the ones with heavier braking zones, Laguna Seca and Thill 3, which is counterintuitive to me and opposite of what I see on my GT500. Damn brake vectoring!



    Thanks
