• 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.

I have both the Power Claw and X3 on 163 turbo Axys. The power claw works extremely well it’s hard to say witch is better. Epic deep days the X3 might edge it out a little. When tree riding and you think your stuck with the power claw it just keeps going and going so many times I’ve thought I was done off the sled rocking or pushing and and it just keeps me moving enough it just doesn’t stop

Rode a few now. 153 3" PC under my Khaos, also have run X3 in past. I love the powerclaw, the thing digs like no other track on the market, for MT and farther NW snow this is the track to have, the X3 is a little more forgiving and creates a bit more float, but if you know how to handle and utilize the dig of the AC track, IMO nothing compares to it.

How's that setup perform in technical terrain. I have a powerclaw and a khaos Raptor conversion ready to put in but I'm wondering with the added traction, the Khaos kit might make it a little bit of a wheelie machine in ugly terrain. I will be a 162 so it shouldn't be as out of control as yours. Just curious what your thoughts were.

Forgiveness is not the sleds strong suite! lol. You need to def carry more speed with this config. I've also put a bit of time on a 162 khaos /powerclaw combo and it is way more tame, pops out of the snow like a khaos but planes out much better. The 153 is a wild ride! lol The sled is incredibly fast and builds speed super efficiently, but also ends up upside down and backwards VERY fast! Its exactly what I wanted and love every minute on it. Just cut the tunnel 5" on the 153 and its even more ridiculously fun, the traction never shuts off.
