Rear: Stock calipers with Ferodo DS2500 pads, Porsche 911 GT3 front scoops installed on the rear arms feeding air directly at the calipers, and a 2Ē hose scooping air under the spring for the side of the rotor. In hotter temps I think the piston dust boots might still be at risk, so I have Yperion shims for the rear as well (if they ever show up).

I installed temperature strips on all four calipers and went bombing around Monza. Air temperatures were around 8 Celsius and the lowest brake temperature indicator (370 degrees Fahrenheit) didnít even pop. We will see how well they cope next summer, but so far Iím feeling good.

Brakes in action:


If the weather cooperates Iím going to hit Mugello next weekend with no front cooling scoops to see how the brakes tolerate it. So far the forecast is calling for rain, though.
Love that brake image capture/video, Please share your mounting set up?

The Go Pro camera is mounted to the standard “flat” mount that comes with adhesive backing. For security, I removed the adhesive and drilled a pair of countersunk holes in the mount so I could rivet it to the plastic splash guard in the wheel arch. The splash guard is really soft plastic and easily removed for drilling. I backed the rivets with a small aluminum plate made of leftover pieces of my stock brake shields. It’s a mount/splash guard/aluminum plate sandwich with two rivets holding it together. I even ran a USB cable from the cabin, along the fender, and into the wheel arch. This allows me to leave the camera on all day without killing its battery and under the control of my phone since it’s hard to access to start/stop recording.

The final product can easily be permanently mounted anywhere in the wheel arch. I experimented with several different locations, but there’s not much room left with really wide tires and brake cooling hoses taking up space and blocking the view. Considerations also have to be made for rocks being thrown, which already shattered the screen on a camera I had behind the rear wheels.
