• 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.

That is a sweet looking sled!!

I would love a full review of that track on the twin rail skid. I've wondered for a while now, that track on the Polaris chassis might be the perfect combo. The Alpah is so affective at tractoring through the steep and deep and I've wondered if it's the full combo of the mono rail and track or mainly just the track.

I know that track you took off this sled is the 2.6 but have had a chance to ride much on the new Polaris 2.75 track? A comparison on the tracks would be awesome. Also, what elevation are you riding at? Pulling 8500 rpm on 4lbs with 74s must mean you're not to high above sea level?

Couple things I noticed with the 3” PC on my NA 850.
It hooks very well, it has a tendency to drive you down hill when sidehilling over the stock or X tracks. Believe this is caused by the wide paddles.
It packs the tunnel with snow and has a hard time evacuating, I believe caused by the wide lug also. Not much clearance between AXYS tunnel and track. This is also causing clutch and belt heat.
I will reinstall it this year and cut it down to 2.7” and try it again.
It doesn’t retain paddles very well. Mine has shucked a few and vibrates worse than any track I have ran.
Cat has a great attack angle and a lot of tunnel clearance. Works awesome there.
Just my opinion here.

The track is the real deal, my buddy put the hole alpha skid and track in his 850 last year that's the reason for me having the track was to compare both sleds NA last year and there was no difference. The Alpha does have a **** ton more room up in the tunnel for snow to evacuate so that I'm sure is some performance gain in the cat chasse. All in all I really like the power claw it works well.

I have not tried the new track but from what i have seen and talked to guys it works well. I ride at 6000 to 7000 feet most of the time.

Thanks Tony I agree with most of what you said and I have found the down hill is not as good as the X3. Let me know what you find when you cut it down. I haven't lost any paddles on mine at all.

Im also interested in how the cut down goes. I love the PC 3 on my sled in a 153. But the trade off is the vibration. I thought it wasnt a true 3 inch though just the fingers. Maybe im thinking of else

Little update the Power Claw does not well under boost just does not hook at all seems like anything over half throttle and she just spins. So now went to an X3 will try that then will try something after that maybe go 3.5 pitch, looking for options.

If you go the 3.5 pitch, the doo track is working soo good on my sled, like night and day better then the x3 or 2.7.

Ran one weekend with a new X3 162 and it was ok, now doing a 175X3 skidoo 3.5 and that should be the end all lol. Tried 4 tracks in 450 miles.
You tried a composit?
The rubber compound/paddles seem like it would stand up well to boost.
