i've been trying to figure out the physics of driving the slingshot in the snow and rain. It tends to hydroplane quite easily. I believe the primary reason it does so is because the single driving wheel is in the center of the road where there is typically water or snow gathering. You have to be especially careful as a result. Snow tires helps a great deal. I have been thoroughly enjoying this vehicle from the day I got it two days ago. I took a ride around the block with my poodle Susie.

I saw your video and I was very happy for you. That's exactly how I imagine I'll feel.:)

Thanks for posting info like this. I plan to use mine all winter, for the most part. Lot's of rain in Oregon.

I can't imagine the light rear end and a RWD system on a single tire helps much...

I drove six hours home from West Virginia in light snow and rain about 25 degrees - no issues, no hydroplaning, no loss of traction. I did mountain roads, heavy gravel roads, local roads & highway, and got it up to 100 mph.

Heavy snow like this... forget about it. Left it at the bar overnight.
