Re: Brake Ducting Q: Add Duct Fans or Not?
I haven't ever tried to cut titanium. I currently work at a company with a 4kw trumpf laser, much easier to draw it in cad and ask they laser cut it for me. It's kind of like pulling teeth getting stuff cut though.
My caution is to make sure they stay in place. I'm not familiar with that caliper. Not sure how to keep it in there. If I had to cut them (without laser access) I'd probably just spend the $ on the ones made already vs making them by hand. Maybe they will cut like paper though..
Dust shield bout melting doesn't mean a whole lot besides there's likely a lot of ir heat hitting it from the rotor.
Titanium can be bought in annealed flavor. That will help be able to cut / shape it. You might be able to sandwich it between 2 pieces of aluminum to keep it from catching and wrapping around a drill bit as you make them.
If the calipers are aluminum you may want thermal shims on the non piston side as well. Might end up heating the caliper a bunch still though that side or inner and outer pads may run at very different temps.
