• 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.

For those who got their sled with the QD 2. Please let us know how much clearance there is under the lower gear/belt to the belly pan? I foresee many destroyed belts this year and will be putting guard on mine.

There is about enough room for me to get my Medium large fingers underneath it. I think a skid plate on it might be a good idea. I am not worried about it

Did you get a chance to measure the track ( top of belt to top of paddle). I thought someone said it was only 2.5"? Looks nice!!

Does the stock silencer really need to be 17 lbs
Holy Schnikes! I think that's a couple pounds more than the suitcase on my old sled. I know cost engineering and noise constraints mean a 5lb can is out of the question, but surely there's some weight to be lost there...
(edit – speaking to the OE can. How does the sled overall get lighter, while that gets heavier if anything?)
