Three wheels ARE better than four on the SS, looking at the pics, just cant see a place to hang another one. AND....when you buy tires at a deal, buy 3, get 1 free, you can get two for the front and two sticky (so sticky that they will be covered with flies) for the back to burn off. :facepalm:

Three wheels will make it faster and easier to rotate the tires. Easier and faster to check and adjust air pressure. Can only have three flat tires at once. When buying a new set of tires you only have to buy three. Will be faster to have your tires balanced. Will be faster to wash your white out line or white wall tires. Can't scrape rear tire against curb.

A mere half century ago, lightweight roadsters provided thrilling twisty-road performance on moderate power, and drivers accepted the risk of nasty crash outcome.

Nowadays, mandatory safety features to make vehicles crash-survivable allow high-performance muscle cars, but not the lightweight roadster.

Not, that is, if you insist on four wheels. A light three-wheeled roadster without airbags and crumple-structure offers thrilling twisty-road performance, provided you accept the motorcyclist's risk of serious crash outcome.

The Slingshot has the weight of the Porsche Speedster, but lots more power.

Three wheels are better than four, if you want a contemporary roadster.

Why is 3 wheels the perfect set up for the slingshot you ask?

1. The mere words "three wheel slingshot" created this safe haven forum in a turbulent time in our world.

2. It has created a world wind of brainstorming among the common folk.

3. It has made the kid come out in most all of the users no matter what age and created the fountain of youth in the waiting room.

4. Polaris has gotten all their future modifications from all of you at no charge. Pat yourself on the back, you thought of it first.

5. You all have laughed together, been disappointed ,Started rumors, thought you knew the truth at times, proved your way was better and did it without having to actually see anyone.

All this has happened because three wheels "are" the perfect set up for the SS. :singing:

We've come full circle in our lives. Besides walking. wheels are a preferred choice of transportation. As youngsters we started out on three wheels from pedal trikes to Big Wheels and then on to two wheeled bikes, some with training wheels till we got the hang of balancing them. By the time we're teenagers we're looking for the keys to 4 wheeled cars to expand our traveling world even more. As time goes on we become jaded in our traveling for the most point. Sure some of us get back into motorcycles and/or performance cars to regain that excitement but even doing that is really rehashing old feelings temporarily. Now re-enter a performance 3 wheeler and once again we're as excited as a bunch kids getting their first drivers license. Times are looking great soon to get that old ticker pumping again when take that key to our new Slingshot. Really when was the last time were we so excited by something that we're chomping at the bit to get going with a huge grin that'll be staying on every time we hop in the SS seats?:)
