2014 Corvette Emblem
Sources have confirmed that some entries from a service manual show a diagram of the front brake cooling deflector kit and the process for installing it. Perhaps what's most exciting is that the diagram is also accompanied with a rendering that depicts the front-end in a revealing profile shot.
The drawings leave little to the imagination, showcasing the side vents behind the front wheels, curved oblong headlights that are seamlessly integrated into the body, and what appears to be another compact vent design accenting the hood.
This new brake cooling system is an exciting find, as well. This setup is essential for car that is engineered to take on track conditions besides cruising on the highway. This new design utilizes an L-shaped deflector that's slightly curved and attaches directly to the front lower control arm.
The drawings clearly show that the component needs to be inserted between the tie rod and control arm for proper installation. Because this is a still image like a photo, one can only assume there is a duct integrated into the underside of the front bumper or within the front grille to channel air directly onto the wheel hub and rotor. The inclusion of the deflector marks this as a more advanced cooling system, since most conventional setups just rely on an air shaft that directs air directly into the wheel well.
Though details for the 2014 Chevy Corvette are due to be released on January 13th, 2013, the team at Bob Jass Chevrolet thought it worthwhile to share this information with fans of this legendary car.
