APR Brake Rotor Backing Plate w/Hose - Subaru WRX/STI 2015+
Manufacturer Part # CF-815654
The APR Brake Rotor Backing Plate is a must have for those of you who like to participate in high-performance driving events such as weekend track days, or high levels of spirited driving. So how will this kit benefit your vehicle? For instance, if you are racing in any event where heavy braking is required, you risk getting your brakes so hot that you create brake fade. Brake fade happens when your pads get so hot that they glaze over your rotors which eliminates any friction whatsoever, then bad things really start happening.
The APR Brake Rotor Backing Plate is a direct replacement of your dust cover on your front rotors. The hose will attach to these backing plates which you can custom route to the front of your vehicle to draw in any cool air. The air will directly hit the surface of the rotor to promote better cooling.
And like most APR products, these backing plates have been fabricated from high-grade carbon fiber for strength and durability. Included will be a pair of backing plates, a pair of hoses, worm clamps, as well a zip ties to make these backing plates ready for installation.

Unfortunately, I haven't been to a track with these just yet to have feel their effect, so I can only really speak of their installation so far. These were a bit of a pain to install, primarily because the bolts holding the front break calipers were so incredibly tight, and I wasn't prepared with a breaker bar as I should have been. I got one though, and this made their removal possible. The only real complaint I have with the kit is that it doesn't come with a clamp to hold the hose to the inner fenderwell like shown in the image (not my image) and also no clear instructions as to where the zip ties go, or what torque specifications are required for anything. So three complaints. Also, one of the holes in the carbon was a hair too small and required some refinement for the bolt to go through. So four. On the bright side however, the installation was quite simple and straight foreword other than what I mentioned, and the bracket in the image isn't necessary as I don't have it, and I haven't had any rubbing issues at all. The hose is incredibly durable and forgiving, and the carbon is done incredibly well and beautiful. It's almost too good to keep hidden away below my ugly car. I'm very satisfied overally.
