So what is the verdict on fenders - have them? yes or no? i.e. if we are building more of a street car vs a track car, do the fenders really cut down on rocks and little things sent into the air and landing on the passengers? Or are they more for aesthetics?
Some states--including my state of OK--will require fenders over each wheel for street usage. Also, it's probably a good idea anyways as really soft tires tend to collect and fling more rocks than normal ones.
