What are peoples experience with the RalliTEK on the 2008+ Impreza?
Does it seem to collect more or less road grim on top of the plate?
Has anyone, or will Paul, weld a lip onto the sides of the Primitive plate to help keep debris kicked up from the tires out of the engine bay? (no I haven't sent him an email yet)
The last time I went down an unmaintained dirt road in my OBS the sound of the brush hitting the undercarriage of my car was unnerving.
I don't have any problems with debris being kicked up into the engine bay with my Primitive plate. Now if I went through some deep puddles (off road) I might but I imagine that would happen with any plate or cover.
