    Original post and video both are labeled 2016, but they are 2017. I'll problems with that for another month!

    Figures...the Slingshot had to be the one with the incompetent driver...

    That should help sales....

    It really feels like they set it up to fail. No racing rubber. No race suspension. It's no wonder the SS times are 4 seconds off from the other cars and sliding off the track. I can see not changing suspension if you want to show what a stock vehicle can do, evem though all those other cars are hand built with racing shocks. It makes it hard to say their stock too, but I guess you could.

    Yeah, right. Phucking idiot runs it into a barrier and up the ass end of the other SS and it's the vehicles fault?

    Should call it RWAI (Race With An Idiot).

    Some of the comments below that article are f'ing hilarious. For example: "I got to drive a prototype Slingshot and they are a blast on the track. Don’t know if I’d go on public roads with one though."


    Maybe not help sales, but hopefully drive improvements? dunno....probably not.
