    If you could design Won and Pu 3D ducting for brake cooling, I'm sure you'd have a market. Such an important thing for tracking... Even just the entryway/mount and the exit port/mounting to be connected by that flexible ducting you often see in air cooling applications:

    Its probably too late now, but they sell brake ducting kits for the focus ST and RS. It attaches to the LCA. From what I have seen in CAD and on vehicle, the RS and ST LCAs are very similar to the MS3.

    Yeah I looked at those, but they weren't quite what I wanted. I wanted to get air from the front of the car not just a small duct from below the LCA. that and I like the idea of sealing off the dust shield a bit to force the air though the rotor vents more. Assuming this is what you are talking about:

    The RS comes from the factory with brake deflector thingees. And they look like they may bolt up to the speed LCA.

    Close but not quite, those look better than what the RS uses.
