^^^^ Thats pretty slick. I see some zip ties, is that all that is holding them to the A-arm?

Also is this an off the shelf metal or did you custom bend a sheet?

^ Just zip-tied to arm and front ARB. Custom formed and riveted aluminum. I'll likely make new ones in carbon or plastic one of these days.

Thanks for posting. I have thought about something like this for awhile. We need to find someone to mass produce these in plastic for us.

Yep, I wish someone would make some ducts for the s2k. I was asking Khiem about making some and selling something similar to here: http://www.motoiq.com/MagazineArticl...-Upgrades.aspx

but no luck. Something like a duct combined with the back of the rotor sealed off (like the wasp kit) would be the best of both worlds I'd imagine. I'm not sure if there's really the space to accomodate both but it'd be worth a shot. I'm currently running the WASP kit and am content, but for those who can't run ducting due to charge piping/etc, it'd be nice. Some rear ducts are something that I think everyone would buy.

What about some rear vented rotors that are affordable?

The flow rear rotors yall have on the site look like a decent deal in the combo. Even more so that the Racing brake extended caliper bracket kit seems to be discontinued.

I'd be all for that, the only question then is what is defined as "affordable." Also, if you're keeping near stock thickness, how durable will they be? The concern is that a relatively thin rotor (that's vented) would end up cracking. I've thought about doing this myself w/ the wilwood 170-10294 hats, but the big question is durability for me and of course replacement costs. A rear wilwood "bbk" (that folks on s2ki are running) can be pieced together w/ OTS parts for a little over $1k, but the big downside is the loss of the e-brake.

I'm definitely interested.
