I have 3 track days planned for August. I'm adding a brake cooling kit soon to my car. I've seen several racing products web sites selling brake duct blowers for cars with brake duct kits. Some use boat bilge blowers. Others blowers seem to be designed for actual racing use. One of the blower manufacturers claims that it doesn't reduct flow by a signifigant amount when you are driving at a speed that forces air through the ducts above what the blower can flow.

Has anyone used them and seen any benefit compared to not using a blower? Most of the better built brake duct blowers I've seen were designed for pro teams and some even use 3 blowers per front brake.

One benefit I can see to using them is between sessions on the track, I can leave them running off the battery power to cool the brakes.

I really don't see a need to add them to the rear brakes, but I guess a blower would work well there if someone did need extra cooling there.

Don't use bilge blowers they are crap. To tell you the truth buy it w/o the blowers it will probably fix any heating issues you have and if you need extra help then buy the blowers. Why put extra weight when you probably won't need it
