Where Did You Take Your Slingshot Today?

  • Well I got out yesterday for the first day of the year. Sunny and maybe 55 degrees. I had to go to the bank to get some money so I took the Sling. This is Daybreak park on the east fork of the Lewis River. It's nowhere near the bank.


    Today I'm taking the truck and trailer across Washington State to pick up a '62 Mercury Meteor. Cute little hot rod. Maybe I'll post it up in the money pit thread...


    Y'all have a great day!

    Remember folks - this isn't a rehearsal, it's The Show!8)

  • No SS riding - too busy working on new house. Going back to coonass land to get all our crap next week. It is SS related though - hand new handrails installed on deck so that none of my brothers (especially me) have too much shine & fall in the creek


    Still got a long way to go but it’s shaping up to be one helluva home warming party for Maggie Valley.

    I might not be right but I can sure sound like it

    love the house - sure wish I wasn't so dang far away - would love to come to Maggie, but my sciatica would kill me if I tried to drive that kind of time and distance and it just seems kind of pointless to go to the biggest Slingshot event that there is without bringing my Slingshot


    On the bright side I have no doubt that not going will save a great deal of $$$$$$

    I have noticed 3 different places that rent Slingshots here in Maggie Valley/Waynesville area. Fly out and rent one. You would have a great time meeting all the folks you been talkin to for so long. If interested I would be glad to get to rental info for you.

    sure, I could come down and rent a Slingshot, but one of the main points of great event like Maggie is all the vendors - - cant get a DDM Supercharger installed on a rental =O

    Does that really happen? I mean do people get turbos/super chargers installed at events? I get lights, other mods that are fairly quick - but big mods like that seem unreasonable to do outside of a garage. Maybe that's just my thoughts...

    I have watched Dave and his crew do turbos and Super chargers in the past

    Not sure if they still do it

  • Did mine as well with help of buddy so get what's involved with turbo anyway. Just wouldn't want to do it in parking lot / grassy field, with people around asking questions and interrupting the process. I mean having all the tools handy in a garage vs what you packed to take to an event. If I was a business I'd certainly charge more for an install at an event vs in my shop. How do you handle the ECU update at an event? Just a lot of variables and hats off to those vendors that pull that off.

    the DDM crew can do it and Bob is usually on site to update ECU's
