Gonna go out on a limb here: I think you will love how it helps reduce fade for how simple a fix it is. Helps to have track pads, SS-sheated brake hoses, and high BP fluid too, but that's pretty much a given. Personally, I think you'll notice that more than than the splitter. About that, I saw in another thread yours goes back pretty far. Is it attached to the radiator support?

No it is not attached to the radiator support, it comes back too far to even reach the rad support. I used the bolts that the tie down brackets on the frame use. 1 bracket on each side tied to the frame. You can push down on the front of the splitter and the car moves down. It is really secure.

so even though everyone understands that cooling ONE side is not as good as both, it apparently helps a lot and no one has had rotor fatigue with it...


F-it..i'll just get the 993 scoops then....lol...

OKAY....Just ordered the deflectors..thanks for the link and part #'s!. I will have them on in about 6 months...LOL.

Brackets will be easy. [thumb]

I had them installed and can say they must be helping cause I was able to go until abs came on over and over without issue on street tires at Watkins Glen. What I will do is check with my thermal gauge to see how hot they are getting in July when I head back to Watkins Glen and to Summit Point in WV.

I just bought some of the Genesis Thermal paint to see my temps before and after my next brake duct attempt.
Come on down to VIR for the SCMC event Memorial weekend, we'll be on the Full Course. After that it's on to Sebring the next weekend.

I want to go to VIR, but I think it fried a RS wheel bearing. It's really weird, because it didn't start making sound until a week or so AFTER WGI. This is the second time this happened POST track event. The last time it was the left side. Strange thing is it was starting to chunk the left front, so I was expecting the LF to be beat however, if I recall correctly that bearing was a Motorcraft bearing and the RS is a Chinese made National bearing. So, we'll see.
