I am running the ducts to the wheel well, not the full hose to the back of the rotor, and I haven't experienced any problems. I track my car about 3-4 weekends a year and participate in autocrosses without warping.

Note: Any material placed in front of the duct will interupt the air flow to your rotors. Perhaps the best solution would be a removable grill for the track...
Good luck,

: if you have a full ducted brake set up does rain affect your brakes? IE does the water getting in the ducts and hoses affect braking performance?

: And wot about debris and grit does this also cake up on the disks due to the ducting?

: responses to above will be much appreciated as am looking to fit a set of motorsport ducts on my m3.

: thx
