We'll be bringing this baby home! Can't wait, I've been wanting a Slingshot forever, just ask Strip poker 388! I've been talking with Rob for years about every 388 I start hunting...
It's a 2006 w/ 600sci's and ITS XR's, with 59 hours on it

BTW, our 2000 Nordic is SERIOUSLY for sale now!

Tom,
The dealer says 90 MPH, but they have the wrong props on it, according to Joe @ hustler. Joe says I need 15.25 x 32" Maximus, and Joe thinks it will run 94-95 MPH.

Nice ride, Congrats! I thought you were staying away from 525, 600, 700, because of the headers?

Dave,
Yes that is/was true, but I've been doing a bunch of research, and talking with Joe @ Hustler, he's given me a couple of pointers on how to minimize the potential for damage. And the fact that this issue will now be addressed by other means also, makes it easier to deal with Potential CMI/Merc header problems.......
Besides the fact that the deal was just TOO GOOD to pass up!
