    In 1996, the SLTX was one of the largest, most powerful 3 seater, with the biggest gas tank, and the quickest holeshot. Like all American products it was dismissed with pretty much apathy from everyone. It's two greatest downfalls was, that it couldn't turn, and that it was too short for anyone over 5'7".

    To put it in perspective:
    Today, it's shorter than a RXP, which some folks claim is a two seater. It's width is over a full 4 ft which made it super stable, in it's day.

    The cranks were always an issue, and the long driveshaft design used a straight spline design which could eat itself if not perfectly aligned, or if the crank had ANY runout.

    It was an "okay" tow craft, but really was only good for a family of keebler elfs.

    Always loved that word...

    Main Entry: ap·a·thy
    Function: noun
    Pronunciation: 'a-p&-the</I>
    Etymology: Greek apatheia, from apathes
    without feeling, from pathos emotion -- more at PATHOS
    1 : lack of feeling or emotion : IMPASSIVENESS
    2 : lack of interest or concern : INDIFFERENCE

    I looked it up years ago after hearing Alanis use it in her smashing debut album "Jagged Little Pill".

    From the song "All I Really Want"...

    And all I really want is some patience
    A way to calm the angry voice
    And all I really want is deliverance
    Do I wear you out
    You must wonder why I'm so relentless and all strung out
    I'm consumed by the chill of solitary
    I'm like Estella
    I like to reel it in and then spit it out
    I'm frustrated by your apathy
    And I am frightened by the corrupted ways of this land
    If only I could meet the Maker

    When you run the touring seat on the SLT hull it's a "perfect" 2 seater in terms of seating capacity and comfort.
    My wife and I used to ride Conrad at the front of the seat all the time but she's 110 dripping wet and of course CJ was just a youngin' so I guess I'd call it a 21/2 seater with the flat seat.
