    I got an SOS call from my Elk hunting partner and good friend who lives off-grid on the south flank of Mt St Helens yesterday morning. He's buried in 6 feet of snow and blew a hose on his snow blower. I was able to get one made up in town and deliver it along with a few groceries. He turned down my invitation for a warm bed and hot meal. This is from his front porch.

    I say it's your money and you should spend it in whatever way makes you happy. One advantage of working hard and earning discretionary income is indulging yourself. It doesn't have to make sense to the masses. It doesn't have to 'pencil out'. It just has to be what you want to do. Hell, it doesn't even have to please your wife - says the guy with too many vehicles that's shopping for a terribly impractical Corvette. It's all about the ride through life. Enjoy yours!

    Well, I decided to remove my exhaust tip to determine the source of a rattle and melted mine down on the inside so now it needs replaced whether I change from the side exit or not. The rocker panel is $153 on Cheap Cycle Parts plus $20 worth of foam. Not horrible. Maybe if I stay with the side exit, I could take yours and you order a new one, and we share the cost. But I have to decide what I'm going with. I don't want a rear exit and I'm not happy with the downward exit of the stock exhaust. I really like the side exit for clearing fumes and sound but my only 2 options appear to be the Welter which exits the same as the Alpha or the Bassani which uses a different exit point that I don't like as well. Both have a fairly high cost. Maybe ZZ Performance would develop a side exit using the Alpha hole and that would bolt up to the Alpha or 1320 headers that many, including me, already have. What say you Kyle D ?

    Got a little sump'n myself. Unlike the others, mine has my name on it :thumbsup:.Many thanks from me and awesome work Slingshot Garage ! I already have a couple spots picked out. What's the story with the big emblem/little emblem? Were they made with a specific location in mind?

    I plan to measure the space between the top of my tire and bottom of the hood when aired out later tonight. Hoping someone with stock SL wheels can give me an installed height on the top most portion of the fender. Trying to see if the street fighter variant will work with the air ride system.

    I much prefer the function of the street fighter version over the bobber.

    Joey, I have 6 3/4" from the top of the front tire to the high point of the fender, measuring from the flat of the tread on my '16.5 SL with JRI GT shocks that did not change the ride height.

    While I'm here, STYLN can you clarify the difference between tier 2 and tier 3. I didn't quite understand it unless tier 3 is for the second 10 buyers (#11 through 20).

    Dieter - I bought the Slingshot and joined the forum to meet people like you. Your contributions far outweigh any perceived transgressions and if you pissed off a person or two, perhaps they need to be more forgiving. Don't let one situation change your program - you are a true innovator and it's highly entertaining for us members to watch and follow your product development.

    Keep on keepin' on!

    That’s a great looking gun. Bet it will shoot well.

    About 10 years ago I bought a GSG MP 5 clone that really shoots well. Has enough weight that feels like a big one.

    This HK is made by Umarex. I've got a 1911 style .22 pistol made by GSG and branded Sig Sauer. It was a give away when you bought one of their higher end pistols. The guy who got it sold it to me because of reliability issues. I think I put 7 mods on that pistol before I ever shot it (stronger spring, stainless ejection rod to replace plastic, magazine safety delete, cut down/reshape hammer, polished the slide, and a couple I don't remember now). I shot it yesterday and it works and groups well - with the right ammo. Sometimes you have to figure out what a weapon likes and some will eat anything.
