I have recently purchased a new Slingshot 29BHS, which includes the Secure Stance axle configuration. The information I have found on this does not offer much information and just generically indicates that this offers improved towing performance. Having never towed a tandem axle trailer previously I do not have any basis for comparison. My questions are:
1) How significant of a difference in towing performance does Secure Stance offer as compared to a more traditional axle configuration?
2) What, if any, impact does this have on the life of the tires? I have read through many posts on this forum about tire performance and understand that the quality of the factory provided tires may be less than desirable. I am concerned that the Secure Stance configuration may shorten the life of these tires even further due to the extra forces that may be exerted on the during corning.
I have traveled from the canadian border to the mexican border on I 15 and return.The wide stance is better tracking even when trucks zoom past, less sway. I am on my 2nd liepert axle replacement and waiting word on a 2nd set of worn tires. When parking the wheel bend over or when making a ticht turn such as in a gas station I have 30 foot zinger Regards jim Taylor
