Awesome news! The ROC in Miami next month will include Slingshots. In the past the have used the Ariel Atom and the X-Bow. Be prepared for sales to skyrocket when the public finds out how affordable and fun these bikes are. If you plan on selling yours soon, I'd wait until after the race Jan 21-22, 2017!

Can't wait to see the pros putting the SS through it's paces!

Maybe they should have taken the stock tires off and used racing rubber like everyone else.

Maybe they wouldn't have been 4-5 seconds slower either.

I don't know if tires alone would have done it. The SS's were plowing hard into the corners and had a tremendous amount of body roll. I think in order for THOSE drivers to appreciate it, the machines they use would have needed a suspension kit. Unless something changes from Polaris, I doubt they will be invited back for the next race. In the SS's defense though, most of the drivers only got to play with them a few hours at a time 2-4 days before hand. The all the other cars with the exception the Vuhl 05 were repeats from the past years.
It was really cool to see them on the course. I wish they would have put SSs on the rotation more often though.
