What I'd really like to see is a well setup AP Racing kit, or Endless.

Yah, it's what all the JCW challenge cars run. And then they also make a less track oriented setup for street MINI's

The Challenge brakes

AP Racing is owned by Brembo. Project μ is sold by Mackin Industries in the US (Same as Rays/Volk etc).

The bumper end or where they're pointing at the brake? I'll look around

Here's a pic swgn took. The ducts run up to the giant grills on the JCW bumper which seem perfect for brake ducting. They all seem to have it partially blocked off...

I can't find any of the actual back of the brakes yet

I feel like I've seen pics before and it's basically just a tube hanging there shooting the air at the brake. I don't recall seeing any fancy backing plate or anything. I might be thinking of the old challenge cars though.

The Project Mus are the BBKs I'm planning on getting. They cost about 2500-3500 depending on which caliper you get though . You can also choose the color of the calipers + rotors when you order them.
