    They even use the Bell crank design for the suspension.
    Its even starting to resemble a KTM X Bow now

    The overall execution looks to be good, however, I would have gusseted the coilover mount point to the diff carrier subframe as a safety precaution. I also would have used some type of left/right turnbuckle to make alignment adjustments easier than their current set-up. With the Rotrex kit that available for the 2.4 Ecotec Slingshot, that would be a formidable on the track.

    That's a separate company selling a kit to convert a Slingshot from a motorcycle to a car. This could have some interesting legal implications. Some States require cars to get smog checks and have fenders and even bumpers. Too bad it's still hideous.

    God that one really is ugly. They have other companies doing it too where I like the conversion a bit more. Still have to wear a helmet in some states though, even if it has 4 wheels! I was going to post it awhile ago but I've seen how some roast others posting non-atom stuff.

    In the end still a conversion though, it'd be interesting to see if up against the Atom. I believe its a bit heavier too!

    Here's a kit I kind of liked, and it looks ALOT better than the one above!
