We'll have an attachment that makes the hose two pieces. This way you can simply remove the tube that's in the wheel well for those times you don't want it. When you're at the track, you simply hose clamp it back on to the backing plate and attachment point bolted to the fender liner.

This gives users more control on how the kit works for their specific needs. Race cars can leave them on all the time. Daily drivers with 5~ track days a year can remove the hose to prevent street damage. It's just one extra few minute step while changing wheels or before going to the track.
