The Game Rides in his Polaris Slingshot, Now Under Recall

Most celebrities scoot around town on four wheels that the average person could never hope to afford. Rap icon The Game usually does too, what with this Porsche Panamera, Bentley Continental GT, and Bugatti Veyron But the lyricist recently acquired some much more affordable transportation – a $24,000 Polaris Slingshot three-wheeler – and he has been giving it some exercise around Los Angeles. According to his Instagram page, The Game received the Slingshot as a gift from friend Cole Harris, in celebration of the 10th anniversary of his platinum album, “The Documentary.” RELATED: See Photos of the 2015 Polaris Slingshot
But there is one small problem – Polaris issued an “immediate stop sale and stop ride” recall for the super three-wheeler. According to a letter that was sent to Polaris dealers, some Slingshot vehicles may have defective ball bearings fitted in the steering rack, which should they fail, could result in steering failure. Unrelated to that issue, Polaris is voluntarily recalling certain models due to defects in the trike's roll-hoops, which the individual parts supplier suggested may not hold up to “performance specifications.” Mind you, performance is certainly something the Slingshot has much of. Underneath its snout lies a 2.4-liter Ecotec four-cylinder packing 173 horsepower, more than enough oomph to propel the 1,684 pound trike. Maybe it's best for The Game to give the Slingshot a break for the time being.
