    I bought some last yr and when I did a google search I believe Walmart was one of the few to carry it and when I went to Walmart they had it in stock in Michigan

    Did you use it and how did it work. Tom hope all is well with you and your lovely Mary.

    Can ecm be tuned to run 87 octane without knock and maintain current power and performance or is the compression ratio the determining factor?

    I know one owner who ran 87 octane all the time, never changed the 'tune' on his and put over 100,000 miles on his 2016 Slingshot. I personally put in 93 octane most of the time --- unless it's not available --- and than just put in enough to get to some 93... If can't afford the 93 better stay home. (I've put 87,000 miles in the seat since Feb 2015).

    I pay my people the same if we are on the 'job' painting a house or if we're doing some work around my place....some of them don't want do some cleanup around the shop or rake some leaves. NO work = NO pay.

    ey, all of a sudden all the header topics disappeared and was replaced by this 102010-pasted-from-clipboard-png ?

    What have I done wrong?

    Mine has been that way since day one.... and still is --- on computer.

    So I started to drive my slingshot after the new motor and turbo install and started to hear a creaking noise on acceleration and turning off motor. It doesn't making noise at start up or at idle. It sounds like something is loose but cant seem to locate the noise. I sent the video to Dave @ddmworks but waiting for a reply

    Any ideas would help

    To get Dave's attention Dave@DDMWorks should send him a notice. Generally he is 'Topnotch' to work with. Generally checks in pretty regularly.

    If your dealing with a Polaris "Extended Warrantee" there shouldn't be a problem. A lot depends on your relationship with your dealer. I have s super dealer with Nielsen's in La Villa, IL. Super service department and techs.

    I spoke with the service manager and they had a slingshot in from Los Angeles where the lights went out and the owner pulled to the side of the road. He open the hood and it burst into flames and burned to the ground. That’s the only one they’ve heard of though

    Sept of 2015 I lost my 'headlights' on my 2015 Slingshot (A Sunday evening several days before the rally in Eureka Springs) My fix was upgrading to a 2016 Slingshot --- the problem that caused the 'headlight recall' fried my fuse box. the Slingshot didn't burn and every thing work but the headlights. A short time later the "headlight recall" came into being. I did get to the rally and had the newest Slingshot there.

    I ran across this when the headline read about “FART RAPE”. As you can well imagine it peaked my curiosity and here was the definition in the article...

    By farting louder the man is using passive aggressive violence to position himself as dominant, this intimidates the woman to subconsciously not release as much flatulence and thus the woman fearing for her safety doesn’t fart as loud as a sign of submissiveness, this in turn contributes to rape culture and women being oppressed.

    Is it just me or we really swirling around the bottom of the bowl when this is a feminist gripe ?!!

    If the 'wife' farts louder than her husband what happens?

    Reach down with my index finger and open a Valve. Reach down again, close it. I like this. It was the socket/wrench that made ME want simplicity. That’s what makes this journey we’re all on with the sling so cool - individuality 🙂

    I enjoy the 2 hour drive to Nielsen's in Lake Villa, IL and visiting with the 'crew' while they do all the twisting and turning.... Than a nice two hour ride home.

    I win every debate, because I have fun. In a room full of needles that don't move much off center, you're only objective should be to enjoy the debate. I know you embrace the joy.:)

    I enjoy watching and learning from the 'sidelines' ….
