Right. My point is that I would rather have the flap rip (as your RAs did), than have the flap stay intact (as you suggest the DRTs will), and tear the hardware or mounting point off the car. Sometimes ripping/breaking is a good thing, if it saves a piece of the car that's harder and/or more expensive to fix. I'd rather replace or repair my mud flap than my fender liner.

edit: sorry, mixed up who said what, but the point is the same.
