    The sobering thing is that due to unforeseen circumstances we will not be in attendance for the event:arghh::arghh::arghh::arghh:
    I will figure out something :p Perhaps I will make like Santa Clause and go door to door sneaking in late and night looking for cookies and milk leaving behind little trinkets for good little girls and boys:wacky::wacky::wacky::wacky:

    Can you post a link of where you got your seatbelts and if you have a pic of the install? Do they react with the brakes, if you're in an emergency, and hit the brakes, they tighten up?

    No I'm sorry to say these are not a passive system but must be secured manually like many 4 and 5 point systems that sinch in you place. I was hooked up with these sets by a former sponsor but understood they were a RV type restraint system that was readily available. Availability and vendors unknown:facepalm:

    Looks like Planted listens. They elongated the mounting holes where the Corbeaus mount. Had to do that manually. Looks like they also spaced the seat-belt buckle mount further from the main frame. I had to completely remove mine and re-weld them further back to accommodate for the SSV side pods and further out to not hit the seat recliner.

    Well its been a spell since a update to the slingshot. Several Blue tooth devices such as Navigation, radar detector IRAD900 and Senna headsets for this up coming solo adventure I am undertaking but nothing really up until now for the Sling:nailbiting:
    Well good bad or indifferent its not good by any performance standards so far. Looks good as any trophy wife might appear on the surface but scary at work:finger:
    I tried an application of 298mm Mazda RX rotors(rear) from a 93 that was offered up by a friend and fellow member. They were a decent looking set that were slightly modified and so I made 3 hubcentric rings on my lathe in addition to his original modification so that they fit to the hub and not hang from the lugs(pain in the ass):banghead:
    But once the hubs were done they went right on and away he went:singing:
    Now it took me a bit of time to install my own because I was still looking for that magical bolt on Iron racing rotor I know must be out there:jimlad: Well I have not found it yet but gave in to the instinct to install and away I went:eek:,...Braking was hooooorrrrrrible:meh: Steel rotors with Zinc plating are about as good as braking on ice even with great performance pads:coldfeet: Three different pad sets yielded less than ordinary performance unless you travel at the speed of smell in which case they are a perfect installation:stinkyfeet:
    [​IMG]
    So the moral to my story,....If your looking for looks you can make a set of rotors fit but if your looking for performance then stick with the old rotors and install better pads. You will spend as much making some cast iron racing rotors work as you can buy the already to bolt on rotors from one of our vendors for around $400-$500 which have all been rated very well in the performance category:singing:.
    You can also always have your original rotors drilled and chamfered if its looks your after but I would recommend that you keep the performance...Just my two cents worth:cigar:

    I will add some pics in a spell:snaphappy:

    I have been away from here a spell getting things in order. Had to remove all the mounts from the planted brackets and make my own brackets to lower the seats. The brackets went right on without any problems but the height was just too much so under the knife they went. Its alright,..Just another reason for me to get handy in the garage:smuggrin:

    something about a good weave that says "hello, lets cause some trouble"
    [​IMG]
    Next step is some carbon panels bonded together for a fresh air box and two Dzus fasteners for a fast take out and clean or access the front of the motor.
    Two things I had to do to install this.
    I) trim a odd under hood louver that was making contact near the Cobra head.
    II)Make a reducing ring for the 3" cobra head to fit the stock TB OD.
    The ideal cool brackets are still in the works but for now Its supported by a CNC 3" bar mount located on the radiator mount(already has a hole for the mount) .

    Resurection time here:mask: Been playing paitent too long so I will do a little catch up on the Sling Mods for the budget minded. One of the easy installs is some art that Painter did for a valve cover. One talented guy and special human being.

    Even got around to making a Carbon fiber air box to go with the ducting so far:snaphappy:
    [​IMG]
    A fraction of the weight of an aftermarket box for another fraction of the cost:greedy:
