Rear brake dust shields

Mine need replaced.  $100 for the pair - yikes.  Curious if anyone has experience simply not running them.  I've heard tell of factory race cars removing them, but I'm concerned about water or dirt intrusion during off course excursions.  I suppose they could always be used for ducting too, though I haven't been as concerned about needing the cooling for rear brakes.

For posterity:  If you are running splitter ramps, you WILL need a shield blocking the inside rotor face or it will overcool.    Also make sure any ducts are focused at the rotor center, not the rotor face.

I know it has nothing to do with the rear, but I figured it would be worth posting if someone is ever researching this.
