Are you leading the pack again this year at Arkansas, had a blast last year, looking forward to seeing everyone again. Leave a night open for whiskey and cigars
PM d you
Ok here goes - perhaps a stupid question but here goes .... my stock rear tire is a 265/35ZR18. Are ALL tires of that configuration the same diameter and width? Do different manufacturers have the same numbers but the tire differs slightly or is this size "Fixed" no matter what the brand?
Thanks for the patience on this.

You will notice a small performance jump with CAI. The bigger gains co.e when you do the header and exhaust with a CAI. Originaly I installed just a CAI then added the others as I could afford them.
Do you think if I put a cold air intake on will I be able too tell a difference

In the works. Lot of cutting, glassing, and painting going on. Going to be a different machine again.
anything new to your ss
Just tilt the switch so it makes solid contact with the actuator. Then just listen for the switch click to know the depth to be set.
on the NAPA switch...how far in does the plunger have to be on the brake actuator ?
i might have to get with you in the near future for a wrench day for oil cooler, coolant reroute and head bolts. did you get the cams yet
Hey if you are still in Bakersfield give me a call I would like to meet you.661 867 2059
I believe it was you at Maggie Valley with the odd rear tire config.... didn't notice front, so many things to see at that time... smaller rim with regular sidewall tire.... do you have a thread posted with details and does that config feel a bit squishy in turns.... my experience is from going from bias ply tires to radials on trailers.
Yes I have a different configuration than most.
I have the base model rear wheel in all 3 spots (18 x 9.5). The fronts have 265 35 18s and the rear has a 295 45 18. The wider rims on the front gives me a lot of grip and they don't stick out much more than stock because of the offset puts most of the width underneath. The rear tires side wall is about three inches tall and about 1.5 inch narrower than a 305 30 20. The added sidewall allows me to run the pressure at 25 providing flex for grip but it doesnt flex in the turns because the back end is so light. What I have noticed is with the stock tires (or even the 305s) the corners of the side walls would scuff from the small roll the sling does in the turns. With the 295 at 25 psi it seems to flex just enough to keep the whole tread width in contact with the road.
I like the configuration and it does give me a lot more grip under hard acceleration.
Something I may consider... with my next tires... don't like the threat to rims with the low profile tires. Thanks for the info... safe travels.

hi,,did you sell the gray top you had for sale? i am trying to work on getting the frame,,hopefully cheap haha,,thanks
Already registered for Maggie. If I go to Texas it will be for 2-3 days.
will you be attending texas or maggie valley i should be there,
Non fumes, I really like it.
Do you still like your alpha side exhaust?Any fumes?
It is not the entire top, just the canvas I removed when I put on a blue one. Yes I still have the canvas.
you still have top?
Hey Trent - just got home today. Phone crashed and lost your info. If your bride still wants the wind restrictor let me know
Yes I was able to get the video to work. Look forward to seeing what else you come up with. when are you going to order your supercharger?
I actually like your paint job better than my wrap I heard the same comment from the judges when it was over, that the lights tied the entire theme of the sling together. Those new wheels are awesome!
Did you ever get the video to work? I'm going to work this week on a few shorter ones.
Agreed / the folks that go make it amazing - lookin forward to the next time we can get together. In Laporte, IN at EJ Fords heading to Michigan tomorrow. Be safe and see ya at the next rally!!
Just my opinion but me thinks you got screwed on the bike show. The guy that won I haven't even noticed his Sling. I wouldn't have minded losing to you but that is my last SS contest I am entering. In my book YOU WON brother - heck of a nice job!!
Bill I really appreciate that. I was banking on my wheels getting me close to your amazing machine. The one guy who was selected to pick the winner felt he had to explain to me why he made the decision. He said the guy with the Texas sling worked for a long time cleaning his sling and that he turned on his light for him. When I watched him leave his sling looked a lot like the one he picked.
All in all I believe the atmosphere for the invasion was awesome and we can't wait to be around everyone again.
tell me you live in Fl...........LOL
