    I bet FSP would know of a way to make such a thing happen.
    Dirt diggler also made a post in the 'official slingshot' thread with disc tabs fab'ed for his Sling. You could find out where he had it done for starters...
    Hope that helps a little bit.

    Cool-blue Rhythm Discy.

    Hmmm.. There's usually a way, it just comes down to how bad you want it. The ones for my Mantis were the result of a couple days of design & FEA, and a few hundred bucks in cnc time. The ones for my Trimble were quicker to design, and only cost about a hundred each for 5 sets. It always helps if you can find other owners interested. Most places won't touch a job till you hit the $500 mark, and at that price point, if you're talking disc adapters, you might as well have them do a few of em, divide evenly & hope to recoup some of your expense. Let me know if you'd like to have a few made. Otherwise, there are options like woodmans disc adapter, & the axlemount & stud spar type, but they do make getting a wheel on & off a bit more of a hassle, plus they're heavy, and, if you don't install em just right (& keep an eye on em) they can rip your frames nether-regions apart. Always an exciting development whilst braking especially hard for something...

    If this is your frame, I'd have to get a better look at that non-driveside dropout. If it's anything like the driveside, we could make use of that horiz surface atop the nice lengthy drop, (lucky!) & those milled out pockets below.

    Hope this gives you some idea of the scope. Any questions or ideas, you knwo where to find me...

    Nothing left to lose, & half mad.
