Boxmount Brake Ducts
If your pads spend a lot of time near their MOT (Max Operating Temp) functional brake ducts can double pad life. If you are occasionally experiencing mild fade now, these brake ducts will probably reduce or eliminate it.
Our patented Boxmount caliper mounting system leaves a nice big space for air to flow where it’s needed most – the center of the rotor. That space is blocked by traditional plate style brackets. The increased cooling air flow also passes across the hub, helping extend hub life. It then flows out through the rotor vanes and through the caliper, cooling the both sides of the disc evenly. Cooling just one side of the rotor doesn’t work. After testing 2 and 2.5″ diameter ducts and the long 40″ hose, we found those diameters simply did not flow enough to make a meaningful difference in cooling. The longer the hose, the more restriction to airflow. So 3″ is the absolute minimum. Heavier cars will often use 4″ diameter ducts. Sports prototypes often multiple 4″ ducts on each wheel. So while 3″ might seem like overkill for the little NA/NB, our experience has shown that its the minimum required to be effective.
Our extensive endurance racing experience (2x Thunderhill 25hrs champions) taught us that brake cooling is key. The Boxmount system was specifically developed to allow better cooling. The entire system is integrated. Ducting this direct and efficient isn’t possible without our patented Boxmount caliper brackets.
The BX11 Duct Kit requires relocating the brake hose in your BX11 brake kit calipers. All the necessary fittings are included
