Only slightly more gay than the Spyders. When we were in Colorado last month they were having a Spyder rally of some sorts. There were hundreds of those stupid things running around.

Somebody needs to make a back half A-arm kit for it to make it into a proper track car. Ditch the belt and swing arm..............

I would not discount them too quick.  Here is what inspired them. 

http://www.campagnamotors.com/

At 24k or so that is a boat load of performance.   Will never be a daily driver concept, but for pure canyon carving that has to be a hoot.   Some folks like running canyons, I am one of them.  There is a market.  Course, no market in the flat lands of Kansas, but anywhere there is a road with switch backs, off cambers, drops and elevation changes - pure joy.  See attached clip of AZ 89A.  We have about a dozen or so roads here that qualify.  About twice a week I get to run 87 /260 in my commuter car.  Nice way to end the day. 

I have been known to come up on folks so fast that they will simply pull over.  Road to Hanna in Maui?  Rent the best performance you can.  Banzai it at about 5:30 am when traffic is less of a concern.  One time in HA, on the RTH during tourist hours, a guy in front of me decided to pick up the pace.  Through the back window I could see his wife hitting him, yelling at him. He pulled over.  She leaned out and puked.   My woman?  They learn quickly to sit down, strap in, hold on, and STFU. 

Spend the money on a few Bonderaunt courses, seriously learn how to go fast.  Watch for elk, deer and falling rock.  All good stuff. 


This is not a warning....... It is an invitation to escape. 



Polaris has a track record of absolutely nailing a segment.  I doubt that a 2b company would have gone into this half cocked?

Hwy 33 outside of Ventura?  One of the best in the west.  At the time had a turbo Porsche.  You know you are hooked up when the sport bikes wave you past.   

Course also have sat on this road for hours watching them air lift a sport bike rider out.
