    The T-rex is a nice lookin ride, but I'll take the open air and an extra $40K in my pocket any day. The weather is too nice here to be boxed in all the time.

    OK, you buy the T-rex & I'll buy the Scorpion. In three years we will sell both, and let's see who's ahead then.....

    You got right with #1-2-3 for #4 i live in Qu├ębec so its easier to find one...#5...FALSE!! Come on! lol...#6 Like you say its subjective i really like the front of the Slingshot remind me the X-Bow, but the tail of the T-Rex was 110% better than the Slingshot...#7 depends on your physical but nobody in my friends talk about that! #8 Your right!
    Have a T-Rex for 2 years and sold it last year...the best thing i drive in my life...but wheater and monthly payment , i sold it.
    For the price asking for the Slignshot i am very curious to make a test drive to compare!!!....

    What I meant about #5 is the engine and gearbox. It now uses a BMW motorcycle engine and a sequential gearbox modified with reverse vs. the SS with a Pontiac Solstice car drivetrain.

    I kinda like the looks of the T-Rex but I think it is even more polarizing than the SS. I think it is really a love it or hate it kinda car more than the SS.

    I will be VERY curious what your thoughts are after a test drive so please post up when you get the chance to drive one in Sept. or Oct.

    Oh, and welcome to the forum! Throw some pics of that beast on here too.

    A photo album in the photos section would be cool. If you have closeups of the drivetrain and your favorite angles of it would be cool. Not many people have seen TRex's in real life.

    Great pics thanks!

    Did you ever have people that didn't see the Trex while you were our driving? I mean other vehicles around you kinda like how motorcycles aren't seen when people switch lanes.

    It's never happen to me or my friends...people who never drive a T-Rex think we are to low on the road, but you know when you see a T-Rex in your rear mirror you still have your eyes on the T-Rex until he disapear...lol...So no,its not dangerous!!

    I've never driven a T-Rex. But I would think the
    two would drive completely different. The feel and everything.
    I would think the SS would actually Handle better.
    You'll have to let us know.
