I live in CO....mine are more to prevent the "look at all the rock chips on my quarter panels" thread after a winter drive. I've actually come out of quite a few construction zones and seen what has been caught by the flaps and been ridiculously glad I bought them (rallyarmor UR) That said....still funny. Some of the cars I see in this thread could definitely use them (looking at you ajchxc and burkart)

I thought the safety regulations required all cars to have mudflaps on at least their drive wheels. Pretty sure I read that in the NASA rules, anyway.

Or did you mean you drive on gravel roads?

No idea, both cars pass rallyx tech and Maine inspection just fine, though.

I don't think their a requirement for a RallyX, though their certainly not a bad idea. I believe most sanctioning bodies for stage rally events require that you have them though.

I thought the willy wonka thing was funny........ I can't tell you how many slammed Subaru's run around the streets of SoCal with them. They practically scrape them on the ground going straight on smooth paved roads haha

Ah, rallyx. That's fine without mudflaps. A real rally would strip the paint off the sides of your car. I did the equivalent of about one 10-mile stage with my STi in the mountains a couple of years ago, before I installed mudflaps, and gravel-blasted the plastic rear fender flares off.

RallyX doesnt require, but Stage/Performance Rally does require them.

Dude I couldnt agree with you anymore how lame it is to see a slammed suby with flaps. I personally run them on my car, but i stage rally mine as a 0/00 course car. Mine are rather large and almost scrape the ground on straights but definitely scrape in turns, lol.

second that. stone chips are deep and tough to repair. debating mudflaps but i'm cash-poor at the moment. maybe i'll trace over some homedepot doormats and screw them on =]
or nab these from my pee-paw

Just go to Napa auto parts and buy a semi mud flap. You will have enough material for 4 invincible mud flaps.

Although those Wisconsin flaps are pretty snazzy

nah i was just joking. my car would look silly with flaps.

i wateched the videos i posted here the other day and they're super boring. sorry fellas.

today i found the biggest gravel pile ive ever seen in a town called Limestone, Illinois. It's hard to get a sense of scale but check this out- had to be 400ft high. it was crazy and had electrified fences in two rows. the warning signs were only in spanish tho. how racial is that!?

Your car will look even more silly with all the chips on the sides, but to each his/her own. Just like the hood scoop, it's more function over design. Or if you're competing with other cars on track (rally) at the same time, it's a safety issue as well.

Miles and miles of gravel/dirt roads in my area. I probably go on at least one a day. Plus Pennsylvania goes hard with the salt during winter, so mine are definitely in use.

Just wish they didn't hang so low in the back.

mudflaps were never intended to protect the paint. you paint will still get messed up. they are designed to protect the underside of the car by deflecting stones/debris away from vital drive train components.

Just a recent pic of the Baja sporting a "Gorilla" light bar with 4 Hella 500 black magics and two Hella 500 fogs, and least i forget, a winch. Can't wait to get stuck

Thanks guys, the lift is a Scorpion 2" body lift complete with strut spacers and blocks, 215/70 R 16 tires. Later this summer or fall I will attempt to add the 1" Subtle Solutions strut spacers in addition to the current ones. I think that will max me out for height without some serious work.



Also thanks for the photo adjustment
