    I could use some advice on fitting my new engine in the Slingshot. This one may be a challenge, even for you highly accomplished gear-heads. I know I'll need to beef up the suspension but let's save that for another thread. I decided to go with the new Polaris 1.2 mil because, as I'm sure y'all know, a million cc's is for pussies! Here is my new power-plant arriving at the shop. Thanks in advance to all of you with serious advice. Looking forward to meeting up with you at the track. Cheers!

    Give Gordon a call. If it can be done, he can do it.

    That Kiwi loves to hear "It can't be done". ;-)

    If I assemble it in the southern hemisphere won't the engine turn the wrong way? (Just trying to show off my advanced knowledge)

    You might have to take the right front panel off. No wait, that's to replace the rusty stock header.. never mind.

    It may be difficult to see over the top of it. I would suggest turning the cockpit 180 degrees and making it a reverse-reverse trike.

    You mean like down in Grass Pants? Make sure to let them know I'll be bringing in my fuel by rail!

    Off topic: If a gay baker refuses to bake a cake for a Muslim, whose side will the liberals take?

    OK, I'm just havin' fun.....
