    Is anyone familiar with these rear brake cooling ducts? They attach to the LCAs and Kohr is stating that these are OEM on the GT500. I have never seen anything like this...

    Would be interested in a set of these but have no clue of the part number or if this is a custom piece that is mislabeled.

    I tried tracking those down a while ago. I think it's a Shelby part for one of the KRs.

    Perhaps one of our amazing vendors or DIY specialists could create something similar :)

    Hmm, I’m working on a project now and this would tie in nicely. The problem with the rears is lack of airflow. The diff cooler on the GT350 is not very effective because there is not enough air flowing through the cooler. On the race cars they moved the cooler to the front of the car. Other applications use fans.

    They are not OEM on GT500's as far as I know (not on my '11...maybe on earlier model KR, as Grant stated), but I've heard of a few people running them. Only feedback I have read is they are very noisy. Not sure how effective they are.

    It's a super snake part....I don't think they are available anymore.

    Worse that it's not even a complete kit!

    Ridiculous price point. That said, if someone actually buys the ePay set, the Kohr set could likely make someone a hefty profit.

    Too bad about the brackets. Perhaps the turbulence at the rear keeps the rear brakes cool enough as I have not heard of anyone having rear brake heat issues.

    Yes and no. I have burned up two sets for rear axel seals.
    I can buy a bunch of seals for that money. Lol
