Does anyone know if the vents next to the Ram Air on the hood are functional? I know this is not a great picture but it looks like the Ram Air is real but not the vents next to it. I know the vents next to the headlight are functional.
Are they functional on the Rebel?

I would say no since water would soak the fire blanket. Someone asked that question in another thread and I couldn't find anything on it then whether or not they are functional.

EDIT: Found this.

The TRX also includes a unique hood with the aforementioned hood scoop and dual heat extracting vents that flanked a raised center section. The grille is larger, allowing for better cooling flow and the large RAM font badge has a flow-through design, and there are functional vents on the outer edge of the headlights that improve high speed aerodynamics.

In a nutshell they are functional on the TRX, not sure on the Rebel, but would think not

On the old hellcat hood (now scat pack hood) the heat extractors ARE functional, however I agree it doesn't appear so on the TRX. It is odd that the article that sporty posted calls them heat extractors, if they really are not?
