• 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.


2004 Polaris Frontier Touring Edge Track Studding

May 22, 2020
Hello All,
I have a 2004 Polaris Frontier touring 4 stroke liquid cooled sled with the 136" x 15" x 1" track and a 2.52 pitch track. It has front and rear heat exchangers and the heat exchanger tubes/lines run forward to aft inside and are shielded in the floorboards. I've finally decided to stud it for ice fishing and have a few questions. Can I stud this track without damaging the tunnel or rear heat exchanger? I purchased 108 Fast Trac 1.175" triple X series studs but I am wanting to be 100% sure I can stud this track without damaging anything. Do I need to install tunnel guards or wear strips and if so does anyone know what brand, length, etc. as I cannot locate a set anywhere on line. Any help or guidance would be great. Thank you

Another option for you is bolting HDPE plastic angle shapes to your track that are cut to 3 or 4 inch length. You would probably need a 1 1/2" x 3/4" angle shape. I used a 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" angle on a 1 5/8" track and it would do wheelies on an ice crust. You then use washers for the bolts that are dished so the nut head and bolt end does not cut through the track. SLP may have the washer, bolt, nut combination.
