Yes. I made a bracket from Al that attached to the LCA using the holes for the DCC bracket. I attached the duct to the bracket. You probably could use the zip ties that come with the duct. I had to do some cutting to make it fit . Sorry, I donít have any photos at this time.

I've not seen any. IMHO, they're not needed. I've not had any on-track rear brake issues.

have not done this mod, but it is in my future.

and i dont know, but i think you need to swap sides on your ducts. the cupped part should face forward.

as i said, just looking at photos. i could be wrong.

beers

I thought the same thing, but after giving it a long look, it looks correct.

Thank you for the photos. Just had my SuperPro LCAs installed. Need to transfer my brake ducts.

Do I have to trim the downward tab thingys on the duct to get them to fit?
