Inline Brake Duct Fans

Has anyone installed fans in their brake cooling ducts? I'm wondering if there is any real benefit to This, including the possibility of extending pad and/or rotor life or something else I'm not thinking of. If so, suggestions on which fans to go with would be helpful.

Thanks,
Sean
 
I don't know if it would be feasible. If my math is right, traveling at 80mph (7,040 feet per minute) and assuming a 4" diameter duct (0.087 sqft) equates to 614 cfm. The average bathroom fan is 300 cfm so you would need a fan twice as powerful to equal traveling at 80 mph.

Ditto: If you already have ducts you would actually be restricting flow. Just more"technical bling" to waste money on.
