The final word on Dodge splitter guards: Remove them!

Friend of Hooniverse Brian Makse was just at the launch event for Dodge’s new widebody Charger Hellcat. While there, he produced a video highlighting the design details of the car. He grabbed Mark Trostle to walk him through the bits and pieces that make the look of the new widebody sedan special. Mark is the head of design for Dodge and SRT. And he has some very clear thoughts on the yellow splitter guards people leave attached to their cars.

If you want to jump right to what Mark has to say on the matter, skip to the ten minute mark in the video above.

      Or how people used to leave tags/stickers on their hats. (Hopefully that’s a trend that has long since passed. I never cared much for fads nor fashion, but my interest has waned even more with age.)

      What’s next– people buying cars with the shipping wrap still attached?

    Do Not take the Splitter Guards off… here’s what it did to my Scatpack when I listened to everyone saying to remove them:
