I just remembered that back in the 80's we used to use a water spray to help our brakes out on our 5.0L Mustangs.The brakes were real crap on those cars and we used to take the windsheild washer pump & run hoses to spray on the rotors. and used the brake lights to activate the pump.We would use old carb jets to contol the volume of spray.It was a stopgap measure but it made enough of a difference that we could run about 4 or 5 hot laps during Solo 1 where we could only run 1 before.Trans-Am cars of the 80's used to run with about a 20 gallon water tank for brake cooling.
