    I work in Transportation and Logistics, you're going to want to look for a hotshot driver to haul it.

    If you want, give me the zipcode for pick up and zip code for delivery and I'll look into getting you an option to consider

    Thanks all for the feedback, so far after pushing the hood towards the windshield (didn't seem to budge though...) the squeaking has stopped and has not returned since last Saturday. I do keep an ear open to listen to see if it is going to come back, but so far we are good to go.

    I will say... It seems that my belt is rubbing in a certain spot. First off... The belt noise is very loud... Much louder than my 2016.5 SL...

    When I am slow rolling (stop and go traffic) or slowing down to turn, you can hear and feel a certain section of the belt rub(?) and then it will go around the cycle and then rub again.

    Any types on that would be greatly appreciated as that's the only "cringe worthy" thing getting to me at the moment.

    Did V-SHOT s not work out?

    It did, in a sense... he said he was out of town and would get with me when he got back to send it, but haven't heard back from him yet.

    That was back on the 9th when we spoke. I suppose it is possible that he hasn't returned yet...?

    It's been 2 weeks MiM ! I have no patience lol. The speakers are the last thing I need

    Cycle the start sequence about 4-5 times. Or you could just start it and drive a bit. Will probably go away. You can also disconnect the battery for about 10 min. That usually clears codes too but starting it and driving usually clears them and is a lot easier.

    Also, welcome to the forum. Sorry you are having difficulties so early.

    What dangerdarrell said

    Had the same issue after adding engine mods and toying with the ignition back and forth

    Took off driving and it just randomly kicked off and didn't have issues since.

    I'm one to talk... My whole steering wheel and alignment is way off! I have to point to 10 o'clock to go in a somewhat straight line... 😅

    haha, I JUST got done fixing this same issue. Small adjustment, quick trip around the block, small adjustment, quick trip around the block, and on and on. 6 different adjustments later, I finally got it right.


    Are you having to use a digital gear box for shifting gears? Forgive the ignorance... I was literally JUST talking to a co-worker 2 weeks ago about wondering if it was possible of adding a paddle shifter... Then I see you doing this...! Amazing and want to know how to get it done.

    It is 99.99% most likely out of my price range to do this, but we both were curious as to how to get it done.

    I didn't like what I felt was a too-steep approach angle on some of the ramps I saw, so I made my own using 2x4s & 2x10s. See attached PDF. I don't use the ramps as much anymore and use a floor-jack to lift the Slingshot to place jack-stands if working on the wheels. The tire blocks give a little more clearance underneath since they're under the wheels instead of the frame and are less likely to tip than jack-stands due to their wide bases. Additional 2x4 layers can be added to the wheel blocks for additional clearance, assuming you can lift the Slingshot high enough to get the blocks under the wheels. Commercial products can be cheaper when you consider your labor and materials costs, but I enjoyed thinking about and making the ramps and blocks.


    That is great work BKL

    This is pretty great haha

    Just took an "around the block" drive after pushing down on the center headlights and pushing the hood a little more forward.

    1hr later (who just drives around the block, 1 left turns into another, then a right, then you are just way away from the original starting point) the squeaking has seemed to stop, for now...

    Thanks for the help airoutlaw and Bigdog !
