Default brake ducting setup

Just wondering if any of you guys run ducting with your brake setup. I don't know if this is even an issue w/ the mini's.

I just got in a new batch of the Carbon Fiber brake ducting backing plates for the e30 M3 from the mad scientist lab. My ducting setup consists of a these backing plates; connecting ducting to the brake duct opening that sits where the fog lights used to be mounted.

This new and improved design has the diverter panel in the back that forces cool air into the center of the rotor.

We tested the original piece w/o the diverter panel against this one at Streets of Willow and saw a difference of about 5 degrees on the rotor surface between the two design so I guess that extra panel did help.
