That's a good plan. Use the RS ducts, they're super affordable.I think I'll try some race pads and another set of rotors and see how that works. Also, I'll put my air ducts on and take off the shield. Hopefully that do the job.
I noticed someone added some heat tape while they had there shield off?
I toasted my brakes at Laguna Seca in 20mins.The pads and rotors I melted were stock. I was on a brake heavy track. Right now I have hp pads and slotted rotors on and I bought velossatech cooling ducts. I also was'nt in full track mode the whole time. Another st there melted his hp brakes. I'm trying to see if it's worth upgrading to the brembos or go a different route. I had a great time and will probably go 3 or 4 times this year.
I run the RS Brembos on my ST in the front, with xp10s and the stock rears.I'm thinking about trying out brembos for my st. I see some good info on installation. Does anyone have any experience or reviews for track use? I melted the stock brakes pretty bad.
The shields and lack of ducting makes all the differenceI run the RS Brembos on my ST in the front, with xp10s and the stock rears.
If you are hard on brakes, you will still need to do more work. I can't do a 20 minute session Laguna Seca before the brakes go away. So I am looking into diverting air to the rotors, and next time around will actually remove the shields as well. I do like the Brembos with the xp10s... The feel was awesome for the first 10-15 minutes...
I'm just saying that IF you are hard on brakes, the RS kit on its own may not be enough.
I wanna do the rears next... But want to get mine to last for an entire track event first.
They are really good rotors. Not cheap by any means ($850 for the front set IIRC) but you get what you pay for.Could you please share your experience on these rotors?
