Today’s Speed51.com Trackside Now coverage was presented by Ultra Cool Brake Fans.

Ultra Cool Brake Fans is a new innovative product that is designed to help racers in brake heat disbursement. Their product has been race tested and has proven to keep brakes cooler on the track. The brake fans fit securely within the wheel and are less likely to damage during on-track action. This is the only product on the market that cools the wheel side of the caliper. It pumps more CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) than conventional brake blowers. It weighs less than conventional brake ducts and blowers. The unique design allows the racer to double stack fans for added airflow and they make rotors and brake pads last longer.

For more information and to order, please visit www.ultracoolbrakefans.com or call them at 720-690-7878.

Today’s Speed51.com Trackside Now coverage is presented by Ultra Cool Brake Fans.

Ultra Cool Brake Fans is a new innovative product that is designed to help racers in brake heat disbursement. Their product has been race tested and has proven to keep brakes cooler on the track. The brake fans fit securely within the wheel and are less likely to damage during on-track action. This is the only product on the market that cools the wheel side of the caliper. It pumps more CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) than conventional brake blowers. It weighs less than conventional brake ducts and blowers. The unique design allows the racer to double stack fans for added airflow and they make rotors and brake pads last longer.

For more information and to order, please visit www.ultracoolbrakefans.com or call them at 720-690-7878.
