  • Alive here in Lakeland, and Slingshot safe in the garage. It was brutal between midnight and 4am. I kept waiting for it to calm temporarily with the eye passing over, but instead, we got the eye wall or the teeth here. Various moderate damage to the plane, dock, boathouse, fences, etc. Always could have been worse, but I'd say damage estimates are conveniently about a dollar less than my insurance deductible would be. slingshotinfo.com/index.php?at…08afe9e2bb14e7d8ed432d2d4

  • And wouldn't you know, the end comes on the weekend. Saturday freaking morning. Got to get a full week of work in for da man and then deal with this. Although a Cat 5, if you're not on the road by Thursday, forget about it. The entire state in full evac mode... the traffic of a hundred eclipses.

    Quote from Slingrazor: “With the Base program in the ECU I had lights, with the SL no lights. ” Well I'm glad you mentioned this; would be good for future experimenters to know.

    I'm not sure we can just yet declare that you just don't have to worry about it at all. Over the years now, the forums are littered with complaints of people who lost their traction control for trying a 9%-10% variance (whereas stock is 3.7%, listed below next to yours). Also notice the calculator is giving your front tires 25.3, instead of 24.5. By under-inflating the rear tire, it would effectively have a lesser rolling diameter, and if was just a half inch lower, that would be a full inch les…

    I'm sure you know the easiest route to this is to just change the diameter/circumference of the rear tire, just making sure to change the front tires by about the same amount, as to not set off the ABS/TC alarms. I forget the exact number off the top of my head, but all the way up to about a 4% variance between front and back would be safe. I don't believe there's any getting around the speedometer becoming uncalibrated (other than getting the exact size of an existing model (an SL using base si…

  • @slingmods What's the stock status ETA on these?, and more importantly, with the J-pipe fitment issue and running out, I hope you'd consider extending the "TwoBros10" code on relaunch.

  • Quote from kev: “Now I see where he's going , I think. The use of the Naca duct above is just to make aesthetically pleasing, the soon to be air outlet , that the air inlet of the Naca will become, when he adds some sort of ram air plenum underneath the hood funneling that high pressure air buildup area out through the backwards naca duct. Yes that will be a great idea, my apologies for momentarily second guessing you @2SierraRomeo But please tell me, the way that cowls oriented in its post I ca…

  • Quote from Tripod: “It's not, technically, a "holiday". Let's remember the true meaning of Memorial Day... slingshotinfo.com/index.php?at…08afe9e2bb14e7d8ed432d2d4 ” Yes, I truly believe the day should be less about hotdogs, beer, sports, and shopping, and more of a reflection/remembrance of those who gave their lives, and more importantly, why they gave their lives, and learning from history and past mistakes. I have the ultimate respect for those who knowingly risk it all in doing what is righ…

  • Quote from MiM: “$5 dollars!!! ” What's even more funny is that it just costs $5 to register my entire plane... and that's for three years, $1.67 a year. Meanwhile, the annual registration for my other vehicles just came in... $300+

  • ...except no damn sales! It should be snowing sales this time of year! No blaming El Nino, where's the sales? I want a memorial for the digits that used to be in my bank account. Thanks to the crooked Federal Reserve, those digits earn more interest as a piece of plastic on the Slingshot, than in the bank.

  • I did originally want it slightly above the rearview camera, but I modeled out all kinds of ways, even using paper and cardboard, and nothing else looked right with this spoiler. Although the rear of the wing matches the rear angle of the vehicle (I forgot what that exact number was, maybe 113 degrees), the front of the Metricks wing is a different angle aspect, so looks weird too high or too much of a tilt. One of the pictures below, you see a yellow line... there's a stock bolt behind the one …

  • I gave serious consideration to Underground's, but didn't like that I'd lose valuable rear visibility, my cockpit cover would no longer fit, and it wouldn't really solve the unfinished look from the rear. Not doing a big ricer spoiler that doesn't solve anything either. Although I did look for one that could be mounted lower and much farther back than I've seen; something to balance out the rear and give a lengthened look to the whole vehicle... but no dice there. So I threw around several ways …

    Quote from MiM: “Damn... @Tango has me thinking harnesses now... ” Tango is saying the harnesses are possibly more dangerous. I believe that to be true in many street car applications; I get what he is saying. However in the Slingshot, I believe the stock seatbelt is crazy unsafe in at least a couple of aspects. No matter the seatbelt system, there can be neck issues without the proper support there. The harness in the Slingshot at least prevents you from being ejected, having the car roll over …

  • Quote from MBMedic: “Quote from Neosolidus: “Great job @Ruptured Duck the top looks great on that angle shot. As far as the color for the frame powder coated black should be standard with everything else being a choice, I feel that will be the choice for those of us who just want a "drop in" solution. ” This mirror's my thoughts as well. ” Yes, black matte powder coat A-pillars and frame to match the canvas top; will help it blend in and look more OEM. On my plane, I painted as many exterior alu…

  • Quote from Flybuddy: “Wow, when I first looked I thought there was no way that NACA vents would work because you'd be putting more air under the fender. Then in next pic I saw that they were mounted backwards..Ingenious and the best looking I've seen. ” Thanks. I'll get it to work like I envisioned before it's all over. But, something you'd appreciate... in the midst of finishing up my annual, it inspired me to cut six new holes in my engine cowling to fiberglass in some new scoops and vents (si…

  • Quote from Buzzard: “As far as Fit, Form, Function, I prefer the @gpcustoms application. Where can I get a set? ” It seems they can be found here: Front Fender Vents | zero decibel motorsports Looking at the problem further, I've circled the real problem area. This area seems to have been purposefully designed as a parachute. The air has nowhere to go here, except to push up on the hood. I'll be working to majorly open up this area. I love the look of these side fenders (my '15, not so much the …

  • Quote from 2SierraRomeo: “Amazon.com: APR Performance NACA-032026 NACA Duct Type 2: Automotive Don't try to use the rivets it comes with. Get some small pan head bolts, paint the heads black, use lock nuts, and large fender washers, because some of the hood plastic needs to bend to form flush with it, and needs support. I also cut away some plastic in front of it underneath, so there's nothing blocking the free flow of air out. For placement, I used 2" painters tape running down both the crease …

Love them, they look cool too! ” Ah, no huge regrets going the route I did, but only did because it seemed like the consensuses was that the vents would no longer be available.
