Can you run your car without the large dust shields on the suspension? Would do this to save weigh and better cooling to brakes. I don't know so thats why I'm asking.
thanks

the brake backing plates can be removed to improve air flow to the discs and calipers but will also reduce the protection to the wheel bearing seals from water and dirt. weight reduction is very minor

Yes, you can do it. My track Super has them removed in the interest of airflow. On a street car I wouldn't do it.
