• 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"


    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.


2.6 track 2009 dragon 163

May 27, 2020
Hey I was wondering if anyone knew if a series 6 163x15 2.6 would fit in my dragon? Or what would need to be done to make it work?
I know the sleds running the series 6 2.6 are using a 7T 2.86 driver and my sled is a 8T 2.86 driver. At a glance there appears to be enough room in my tunnel to go up from my 2.4 to the 2.6.
My track is getting a little beat up and I know a guy selling a lightly used 2.6 series 6 for a good deal.

I have run a 2.5 in there, so a 2.6 should work. I know the 2.6 fits in the Proride easy-peasy. And some Axys owners were switching to 8 tooth drivers to reduce rolling resistance and had clearance. By the way: Typically I google-search with "site:www.snowest.com" and get better results than on the snowest search, when looking for info for a sled that is not the latest and greatest (less activity in the IQ topics and fewer people read and reply, but the old info is there you just have to find it)
