: 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

: rbns

Ducts pose no real problems, just don't drive in water up to them, some people recommend taping them over if there is a lot of water but it isn't really needed. As far as rocks and the like go to a hardware store and get some kind of fine mesh screen to put over the ducts and paint it black. I have one and you almost can't see it if you don't know it is there. It will keep out the worst of the rocks and such. I have had no problem with my ducts at all.
