    I took yesterday off from changing mods over to Sling II. Four days of at least 8 hours were enough for one week, this is like doing everything twice. I still have around 12 mods to change over worth around $6,000 that will take a little bit more time. Makes a lot more sense, rather than buying new stuff. 22 mods changed so far! Hey! I still have the stuff I am not changing over that I will order on Black Friday from SlingMods

    I can appreciate this so much! I saved many things from Sling I, (one of them ended up still going with the new buyer) and still I have many things to put onto Sling Deuce. I have stuff I didn't change over (still needs installed), and some I have bought from Slingmods. But the biggest will be the exhaust from Jeff Welter (and his sellout to them) ... from Slingshot only. Hate to say it, but I need to go there to get the one I need.

    But as of now, I don't "need" it that badly. Black Friday isn't that far away.... :thumbsup:

    Well, I got a Fast Red one. Thanks for the update and link. I look occasionally in the Matchbox/Hot Wheels section, so if I see another one, I will grab it also (several if they happen to be there). Then.... maybe.... I can open one and display it the way I choose too! Otherwise, it stays new in (box) package....

    They are single led, spaced out, yes.

    Those look very nice! Equally spaced, not to many but enough to present it well! Kudos! Perhaps a pic later in twilight, showing them on? I have only had my "new to me" SS for 2 weeks (other one should leave the stable this week) but I have all the performance/handling things I need for it. Might be interested in a few well placed LED's, and these could just fit in with that bill.......

    The fan is a experiment. Trying to remove heat from footwells. My next design might be a larger radiator fan underneath.

    Madstad adjustable windshield fixed that for us. In the down position, heat in the footwells stays (a great thing for some rides and evenings in Indiana). In the raised position, (even the day I installed it at over 90 degrees) when you hit a shaded area.... you will feel like the AC is on. It sucks the heat out of the footwells with a little speed. For us, it is a "Never regret" type of mod.

    i order a six pack from amazon along with a k&n filter. I don’t get the synthetic.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, but cylinder compression isn't affected by intake air pressure. Cyclinder compression is measured with the intake valves closed.


    At least that is how I understand it.


    old school way of upping compression slightly is to use a thinner head gasket :) Then again, I was told that by a guy who would hone a brand new engine out to loosen it up for the track. No science to it, he'd just hone for a while on each cylinder.

    The way I understand it, is that you have increased the intake pressure to actually get more air/fuel into the cylinder before the valve closes. N/A the piston sucks air/fuel into the cylinder, then the valve closes. On boost the air/fuel is coming in faster, being pushed rather than sucked. If you have 6 psi in the cylinder when the valve shut (whereas N/A would be zero) then you already have pressure in there before the compression. Boosted may not increase much, but it must increase the amount of pressure at TDC over N/A. That was my thinking. Sort of like exhaust scavenging on the backside. I've ran performance pipes on a non built Harley (30 years ago, still was trying to figure it out) and they were scavenging so well it was actually sucking fuel/air out of the cylinder before the exhaust valve shut off (overlapping cams) and was causing mileage to drop greatly and built up heavy soot near the head in the exhaust.

    Think of it in a different way. If an air tank has 0 pressure, and you compress it to 11:1, now you have pressure in there. However, if you had 100 psi in that tank, and then compressed it the same 11:1, there is much more pressure in that second tank compared to the first.

    That's the way I understand it. Otherwise, it has the same amount of air in the cylinder boosted or not when the intake closes. The amount of compression doesn't change, but you are starting with pressure in there to begin with. The end pressure with boost has to be higher at TDC than N/A. But I bet Dave@DDMWorks could tell us next time he drops in..... and what oil he would recommend us to use. (I'm running the Big Kahuna with the large pulley)

    what windshield are you using. I am on the fence about madstad 11 inch adjustable. I have a F4+5 now. If I get the other, need to sell one I have.

    Any thoughts out there?

    I have two. This is the lighter tint Ripper from Polaris. I like it a lot. I also have (courtesy of my good friend Bu11sh1t ) a Madstad 7" light tinted. I don't think they make the 7" any longer, but for me the 9" I think would work better. I should still be able to see over it when it's up, or can duck down slightly and tuck in from rain. If I were to only have one windshield, either of the ones I have would work..... but I prefer the Madstad for my own personal tastes. It really sucks the heat out of the footwells when it's raised.

    Rob the Slob I remember you talking about that oil. At the time I was thinking about it was the same idea as Rotella Diesel and Harley oil. The Harley oil zinc is because of heat, being an air cooled engine. The diesel Rotella has the zinc due to the heat that comes with the higher compression. It makes sense, being boosted, there is higher compression and heat also. it has Mobil 1 in it, but I may switch next change. Probably do that next month, before I put it up for the Indiana salt season.....

    SoCal I don't think you'd gain anything. On stock engine, I'd stick with Mobil 1 or your choice of synthetic oil. The zinc is more for heat and the added wear from higher compression. I've noticed the fan kicks on more often on this one.

    I've been doing some things to Sling Deuce. It's been mostly windshield, seats, and swapping over my Painter cam cover and coil pack cover. I'm also putting in 12 hour days at work, so time is very limited on what I can do. But I did snap a pic of it after I changed the oil two nights ago. So I'm calling that my project, and using that to show off under the hood.... :D

    The new one will be before the day is over. The second mod will be the 5.0 Hawk pads. I will not be listing the mods on Sling II. All of the mods from Sling I will be changed over to Sling II. Why is some stuff typing slanted and some normal?

    When you hit control "I" it becomes slanted, then hit the same and it goes back. The first slant was the "II", and stopped when you hit the last "I" in Sling 2 and Sling 1. I'm betting instead of hitting the shift key, you hit the control key.

    Sucks when you only have one arrow left

    ( no pun intended ) in your quiver and it has no tip, is crooked, and missing two feathers 😝

    I'm betting Elizabeth Warren has those feathers to be try to be more convincing! :00008356::00008172::00008040:

    I took my (new to me) Sling home. 465 miles in total. Picked up Brody's ( bjk81 ) Sling and headed back to my place. Have much work ahead of me, switching things up. My original SS will have CAI, Stainless Header, CAI, Custom tune, Custom gauge setup (Volt, Oil Pressure, Temp), DDMworks short throw shifter and a fender, along with a Painter original cam cover/DDMworks coil pack cover). I've changed the oil every 3,500 miles or less, Angle drive is pretty quiet, has Redline Heavy shockproof in it now. It has 48K on it... runs and drive like new.... no, better than that! Message me if interested.... asking $13,500 but feel free to make an offer. Uses no oil, drives better than most I've been in. Wasn't planning on trading, but went for it anyway.

    Hidden kill switch is on my “winter “ list.


    I only really wish I had one while talking trips when the ol’ girl is out in a parking lot at a hotel.

    Had that on two of my muscle cars I owned. One was under the dash, a push/pull switch that needed the key first but would not shut off until that switch was reversed. The other one was a positive battery switch, located to be desecrate but very effective.
