  • Does anybody have specs on safety equipment? I know helmets, but what about shoes/gloves/jacket etc? And where can I get arm restraints? They ain't got those things when you race without that extra wheel.

    Helmet - DOT full face

    Gloves - any good glove will suffice

    Jacket - same as above

    Arm restraints are not required


    Remember we are not racing - this is technically "test and tune" You will be on the track with about 10 other Slingshots. No passing unless you are signaled by the other driver and only in specified areas.


    This is just a fun day where you can ride as and as hard as you want within your driving ability. This is a beautiful track and perfect for an SS. If you have never been on a track we will have some experienced drivers who are happy give some instructions.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone at the track. Everyone will need to sign waivers The day of the event before we start. Dave@DDMWorks will post the information when available.

  • Thanks Dave@DDMWorks

  • Thank You Everyone. The most important thing is for this to be a "SAFE" day and it should be a fun day for everyone. This should be a day that you will go out on the track without having to be looking out for law enforcement to pull you over. My little speech to everyone is to ride safe and at your own speed. As you progress with your laps on the track you will become more comfortable with the handling of your Slingshot and you will naturally speed up a little or maybe a lot, "BUT STAY IN YOUR COMFORT ZONE" and watch out for the others on the track. This is to be a fun day that you may never experience again, I hope that this will not be the last time for any of us. Ride Safe and enjoy the day and give a big thanks to MACAWS and Dave@DDMWorks for this time on the track. After all they did make this possible.

  • Track Day is only 8 days away.

  • Starting packing for track day, I am even bring a back-up tire If there is a problem with the Kenda that just got to the wear bar. The spare will be that piece of S--T Nitto 555 G2 maybe it will have some traction when it gets hot. I also printed out (I Think) the tech sheet. I will not bring my new Riken ZR street tires, saving them for next summer.

  • So will we, but DDM is having a wrench day tommorrow and I was just wondering if anyone was going?

    Tom


    I have some work to do on my sling but I will be at my shop on Saturday. Best to check with Dave to see if anyone is headed there Saturday

    Jdin is meeting us in Clrksville Sunday Morning and we are meeting Keith at South of the Border on the way down


    Travel safe

    See you there
