• I am getting worn out moving your "For sale" threads, including loosely veiled sales pitches for "How much is it worth) or Wanted to buy to the swapmeet.

    I will no longer be moving them for you as I have been in the past.

    Some days are 20 per day.

    If I see it, it will get deleted.

    I try to help you...please try to help me.

    Thanks.
  • I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"

    http://www.snowestonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=269222

    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.

141" track convert to 3.0"?

Hey guys, just picked up a 91 indy sport GT with the 141x2.52" Track. There are no tracks available in this size that I can find and the old track is in desperate need of replacement/bigger lugs. I will be using this machine as the early/late season beater, keeping the tough miles off the Pro and the 2.3" track. Can I get 3" drives for this sled to run a 1.6 cobra from a cat? Can I get away with a 144"x2.52" with the tensioner maxed out and maybe some bigger rear idlers? Thoughts Gentlemen?

Not sure what is available for hex style drivers in 3" pitch but Wahl makes 7 tooth 2.52 pitch drivers that work out to a 5.5" diameter. Using those I was able to install a 1.75" track on an old Indy Lite. Could've maybe squeezed a 2" lug track in there too........

Best to measure what clearance you have now & do the math to see what combinations will fit.

As for length you could look into rail extensions or possibly an offset / large wheel axle kit.

Thanks, there is a 141 x 2" yami track for sale on kijiji. I thought about cutting it down to whatever fits and using it. not a whole lotta power in the 440 to worry about, the track is in pretty rough shape but better than the original.

Could also potentially go with sliding the skid back to accommodate the 144" track.
