    You know I'm trying my best to remember who on the forums used to say they ran 150mph in a stock slingshot... :whistling: I swear I remember a thread on the dark side where some people said they had held their gas pedal to the floor for however long and it was over 150mph. 8)


    I seriously dont think terminal velocity for a slinshot pushed out of a airplane would be near 150mph.... :D

    I hear 150 and 155 often from folks. I personally have seen 140mph on my sling in a long straight away in Texas hill country. I had lots more room and climbing but I let off the gas because my wife was in sling with me. I really would like to get on a safe flat surface with miles of open area in front of me to see what speed I can get it up to. Although when I was in hill country I was already driving at 70mph when I decided to floor it and see what it would do I also do not know how much distance I traveled to get from 70-140mph. The folks who told me they hit 150 and 155 or more. Some I believe. Others I laugh inside and smile.


    anyhow it was fun and I will do it again.


    I do think the slingshot can get over 150.....I just do not know how far you need to go and at what HP.

    Yes. Like DKF Texas said we will have more information on hotel options when locked in. Please everyone save the date this is going to be an amazing Event worth traveling for.


    By the way as questioned above about if it is free or not and I followed up with the wording is being updated. Now it has been updated for anyone who may be wondering. Here is the new link. Slingarama: Slingshots in Houston – Slingshot Roadsters


    I know its 7 months away but everyone please save the date March 22nd - 24th 2019. Houston, TX. Its going to be amazing!!
    Click here for FREE Tickets to attend this event. THE SLING EXPERIENCE Tickets, Houston | Eventbrite

    The wording is being updated on their sling-a-rama stuff as the $20 for the t-shirt they are offering is not a ticket, its for a shirt at the HOUSTON, TX Event called THE SLING EXPERIENCE. Entry to THE SLING EXPERIENCE is FREE. It is merely a shirt they are selling with profits being donated to a charity and the shirt is NOT required. Check the link for free tickets.
    Free Tickets: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/t…ience-tickets-49196647497


    Yes I am sure it is FREE.

    I was thinking similar to the above statements. Although it was on a guess on my part. The thing that confuses me is why punch so many slots? Why not punch the single year and month? Does it represent all the years that part will work on?


    Do we have anyone in the group that works for Polaris that know more about this process that can explain exactly what I am looking at?

    I think it’s not old enough of a car for that age. My car at 18 was 27 years old.


    But I think he will be very lucky to get that car. I’m 2006 I wanted a 350z I never got one. Some day I will.

    Here's a quick reminder that this event is just around the corner.


    Can't wait to see you there!

    How the contest works:
    Poker Run Game Rules


    1. Every player will be given an individual score sheet at the start of the event. The Dealer will also maintain a master score sheet. Score sheets will have the names of all individuals who have paid for a ticket or extra hand. Each individual score sheet will have 5 slots for each poker card drawn, with 3 bonus slots for bonus cards if purchased. (See score sheet image above)


    2. Additional “add-on game cards” can be purchased for $50 each. This can increase your chances to win, or be used for a passenger or partner who would also like to participate in the game.


    3. At each meeting location, each player will approach the gaming station, and draw a card. The card will be written on the individual score sheet, and the master score sheet. The card will then be placed back into the deck. If a player draws a card that he/she has already drawn at a previous stop, the player will draw again.


    4. At any station, an additional bonus card can be purchased for $20. (Up to 3 total...)


    5. If a player is not present at any given stop, and the player has already paid for an event ticket and is listed on the master score sheet, an event assistant will draw a card for you, which will be written on the master score sheet. (All players must be present at the final stop – casino parking garage – in order to be eligible to win the cash prizes.)


    6. After all five cards have been drawn (and any additional bonus cards purchased), we will use standard poker hand rankings to determine the best 5 card poker hands. In the rare case of a tie, the following suit ranking will be applied: Spade = highest, then heart, then club, then diamond = lowest)


    7. Prize amounts and number of places paid will be announced at the final location.


    8. All players have an equal chance of winning, no skill is required, and Sling Life / Slingshot Houston will maintain the rules, integrity and fairness of the game for all participants.


    Slingshot Houston family members Charles and Theresa Fontenot have had some rough times since Hurricane Harvey flipped their lives upside down. Mark Maillet, founder of Slingshot Houston, has gone above and beyond to assist their family, and we are pleased to donate a large portion of the proceeds from this event to help them get back on their feet. Funds raised will be presented to them at the Lauberge Casino Resort garage rooftop at approximately 7pm on 10/14/17. Please visit http://www.slinglife.net/events to purchase tickets to our Poker Run ride, or you can donate directly to them by purchasing the “Fontenot Donation Only” tickets from the website. Come out and ride with your local Slingshot family this Saturday, for good fun, and a great cause.



    We appreciate our entire Slingshot community for supporting our events. Slingshot Houston in association with Sling Life put on many free, successful and highly organized events throughout the year, with Mark Maillet and Storm Mansell (and others) donating countless hours of their time to make these events special. We hope to make this an annual event, to get bigger and better each and every year. This is a non-profit event with all proceeds going to prizes, charity, or event expenses.

    Now that's useful info right there! How much of an increase over oem is that? Thanks @QuickSilverSS. And did you ever post pics of your tire decals?

    Stock Alternator is is 130-150Amps. So this is a huge upgrade and will cover all the sound and lighting the slingshot can handle. I also upgraded to the Yellow top Optima battery.


    No I have not finished the Tire graphics. I have them. But I been so busy and it is a project you need a steady hand and lots of time to get it perfect. I will do it in next day or so I guess because my sling will be back on Thursday morning from what I have heard.

    When you want to go big sound and lighting, go with the 240 Amp Alternator from JS.Alternators for your Slingshot. House Of Sound Car Audio is a Dealer for local Houston install or all my friends all over you can call Jonathan at JS Alternators. They are $359.00 plus shipping and can ship in 1 week. It's a direct replacement with no belt change. JS Alternator said. “No check engine light comes on. JS Alternators use genuine oem regulator, which keeps light from coming on, plug n play. Bolts in direct fit.”
