Does anybody know if they have air scoops for front brakes? Do you think you could use the ones from an older gti? My friend had an 80's gti with these boot things that scooped air and blew it on the front brakes?
Disks don't need them since the car doesn't weigh enough. If you're having problems with fade I'd ditch the drums and make the switch. Check out http://www.toplineparts.com/ for the best conversion kits. --Ryan
dude I got disks in the front, but I swear I get some fade. So you are saying that since the car doesn't way much that their is no way you could have brake fade? It doesn't happen often, but on a hot day doing a lot of braking, I swear I get it.
It might be the pads you're using. I know a few guys that race on road courses and don't have a problem with brake fade and discs. I do think they are using vented rotors, but that's not unusual. My rotors aren't vented and I haven't had any problems with fading even in harsh stop and go city traffic. I'm not saying there's no way you can get brake fade, but if you are then I think you need to ease up on your driving style on city streets. It takes quite a bit of stoplight racing for me to notice any change, and we're talking up and back from 80 or more between lights, a couple of times at least. --Ryan
