    .Maybe your right...the T-Rex is a performance trikes...on the track is very impressive and i don't think the SS can be compare to the T-Rex...I think the SS will fit more with the Campagna V13R it's more close on the way to drive them...

    Ah didn't know that. Never seen a T-Rex at the track. Maybe not
    As good then? Hardly ever see T-Rex around here.

    I am curious what the difference in weight distribution will have on the dynamics between the two. I would guess the SS is a little more front weight biased which should give it a little better dynamics (for a trike anyway).

    No disrespect meant, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig

    T-Rex can go up to 11000 RPM before red line!! The 1400 Kawa Engine is one of the most powerfull motorcycle so that can help!! lol

    Look at this video of a T-Rex on the track...

    Centurion,

    This is a slingshot Forum. If you want a Trex go buy a Trex.

    We are all very excited about this machine we are buying.

    Perhaps you need to be on the Trex Forum

    Storied - to be fair this is the Slingshot vs. TRex thread and he owned a TRex recently (sold). I think it is interesting seeing the counterpoint especially from someone that actually owned one and not some keyboard jockey.

    We will flog him if he tries this crap in the other threads. ;) just joshing Centhron! ...Sort of :D

    I understand sloride! But i think Tango was right...lol...I drive a T-Rex for 2 years and sold it last summer and i miss it!!

    But! I just discover this week about this new SS ride and i am very very curious about it!!! I love the X-Bow front look and what to say about the price!!! When you can have a 2009 T-Rex for 44,000$USD and the brand new SS SL for 30,000$ i have to make a test drive!!!

    In this section i can make REAL difference between this 2 machines because on this forum maybe i was the only one own a T-Rex!!! ;)

    And i am passionate...for the T-Rex for now...but next summer who know what i am going to drive...:woot:

    The Campagna T-Rex and V13R are similar but wayy more expensive. The scorpion p6 is the most comparable for the money, but you lose a passenger... which blows!
