Brake heat shields vs brake cooling ducts: which is better?
Consider this quote from "Sports Car and Competition Driving", by Paul Frere:
It is particularly important that when the car has been stopped for a short time -- up to 15 or 20 minutes after a drive in which the brakes have become very hot -- the pedal is depressed for a check. When the car is at rest, brakes act as a heat sink from which heat spreads to the fluid contained in the calipers; brakes which were fully operative when the car was driven may have become totally inefficient after it has stood awhile.
The heat shields are much easier to install than routing ductwork through your car, and may provide all of the protection you need. If you are suffering from serious bad-ass brake heat issues there is a good chance that you will want to use both heat shields and cooling ducts.
