I'm thinking of doing the undertray brake cooler on my DD/light track duty setup, but I have read somewhere this setup may not generate enough air flow to sufficiently cool the brakes.

THe PFCs look baller btw.
I think it will help, but obviously not be as effective as the fog light brake duct location. I will warn you though, the under tray intake design picks up a lot more debris, especially if you go off track which all gets funneled right towards your brakes.

UPDATE:

I had the car out for the first time this past weekend. Big thanks to the guys at SCR Performance for staying late into the night making sure the car was ready. Also a big thanks to James at Bimmerworld. Without his knowledge this build would have been almost impossible. The car felt great overall. Very neutral and balanced. I hope to get a few more test sessions in in the next month or so. Just need to finish up a few more small things and get the decals on and she will be finished!

Here are a couple pictures (Not the best I forgot my real camera and only had my iPhone):






(yes I know my numbers are crooked. I slapped em on temporarily. The real ones will be straighter)

I also got a custom car cover made by California Car covers which fit PERFECTLY. I am very happy with it.





There were some guys taking action shots on the track so once I find some of those I will post em!
