Aside from the obvious issue of dirt and debris incursion, anyone know of a reason one should not drive a short distance, at city speeds, with the rear under panel removed?

To be clear, which panel are you talking about?

The diffuser? No problem.

The shear panel is clearly labeled as vital. The undertray and diffuser, no issues.

I took mine off and drove around to help isolate a rattle.

Kind of a tangent but this seriously isn't easy to do. I spent the last week making my car rattle free and things resonate in such a way that the rattles sound as if they're coming from another part of the car.

I took them off to see if they were the source of the rattle. The rattle continued even after removing them. So I continue to look elsewhere.
