Now back to the contest!

How do I win you ask? It's simple, respond in this thread and let us know why you think 3 wheels make the perfect setup for the Slingshot . We aren't looking for a three word response, we want detail, make it awesome, make it funny, be thorough, be creative and most importantly just have fun with it!

The excitement in this guy's voice reminds me of the kind of excitement that I felt the first time that I saw an exotic car on the road when I was just a lad. I cannot imagine how I would react if my young self saw a Slingshot for the first time. I have been lucky enough to be able to drive and ride in some truly special cars in my lifetime, and I always loved to look over and see a little boy or girl, with their nose pressed against the window, not wanting to miss a single second of the car as it passed. It made my day to know that I had made their day by just enjoying a special car where it was meant to be enjoyed, the open road.

I think that we are going to see a lot of this once the Slingshot starts hitting the roads. The lucky few that will get the first run of Slingshots will be on the cameras and cell phones of so many strangers for simply driving something so radically different on the roadways around the US. I don't even want to talk about the number of questions that they are going to have to answer during fuel stops. Get ready to make some days ladies and gentlemen!

Thanks to Centhron for tracking down this video. See it in the second post of this thread.

You guys knew that I was going to save the best questions for last didn't you?! To end our sit down with James, Lead Engineer on the Slingshot, we broke out the big guns. The questions that have been cropping up in the Slingshot Performance sections of the site. Enough with this lead in, and lets get to the pressing questions:

SlingshotForums.com What is the weight bias and can you elaborate on why it's set to what it is?
James It varies between approximately 66:34 and 59:41 based on how much load is being carried. This was chosen to balance tire loading, grip, stability, and rear traction.

SlingshotForums.com Is the brake setup GM or from another production vehicle?
James Polaris developed the brake system specifically for the Slingshot. It is unique to our roadster.

SlingshotForums.com We've heard that it has a short shifter? Is that something Polaris developed for the AR5 and added on or is it just the standard AR5 shift linkage?
James It is a modified AR5 shift linkage (shortened front-to-back) with a custom-designed shift knob to provide short shift throws.

SlingshotForums.com What is the widest rear tire/wheel width that the swingarm will accept?
James Larger wheels/tires can have a different rolling diameter, which could reduce effectiveness of the stability control system, alter ride height, and compromise the roadster’s handling. We do not recommend altering Slingshot’s wheel and tire sizes.

SlingshotForums.com Will a larger stickier rear tire interfere with the stability control or traction control systems?
James Potentially. A larger rolling radius will affect the rear wheel’s speed signal, which could alter the performance of the stability control system....
