You forget that most (if not all) rear disc brake kits add 1/2-5/8" track to each side of the car, and with the late (long axle/long bearing housing) swing axle and irs suspensions there just isn't the room. The current manufacturers are also trying to keep the base price point as low as possible to attract customers (something the Porsche factory did with new Speedsters- it was their entry level car). I know it seems a little unbelievable, but I guess not everyone needs disc brakes...

Yes, they look cool as all hell and it opens up space, but it also consumes a lot more hp to spin that fan, so you better be building it big! Most examples of that style shroud aren't even close to balanced (some cylinders run significantly hotter than others) and with no thermostat the engine takes longer to warm up, which accelerates engine wear. Where these shrouds work best is at continual high speeds on the autobahn, and maybe road racing? (once you've built the inside diverters to get all the cylinders/heads to run similar temps, of course).
Yoda out (for now, but back you know I will be!)
