• 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.

We are going to do tests later this week/weekend here in Scandinavia/Sweden (sealvl). Got some weights, springs and a Helix sent from TRS earlier.
Will be fun to compare his kit to what we normaly are running over here!

All the testing will be done on a primary with zrp cover, titanium bolts and everything balanced.

Polaris paid trs not ride so he wouldn't warranty any motors this year.

That sucks for testing 850 Trs I hope you can ride next year. We really appreciate the info and testing you do. For me anymore I would rather just pay for an elevation clutch kit than try to do my own. I don't get to ride enough the way it is.

Are you seeing the old 2016 belt perform better than the new 2019 belt? This is what I am suspecting but haven't put in enough testing

Pretty sure Tony is referring to the new 2019 belt which the last numbers are 216....vs the old belt that was 183. He has been referring to the new belt aa just "16"

Which one Tony? I had replacement disc surgery on C6 Jan 2016 and it's been hell since 4 months afterwards. Gagged hard brushing my teeth and disc moved forward.
I feel for you, it’s not fun.
It’s L3-S1. Docs said surgery isn’t very successful for active people. I’ve seen 4 surgeons to date.

The new 2019 belt. 3211216.

Justin did a test for me on his 800 AXYS sled with the 3211216 compared to the 47C4572. His sled needed 3grams more weight per arm to bring the r’s down to the 47C level. The new belt is hard to get a grip on. I’m wondering if this is part of the lackluster bottom end complaint?

I have been testing all year and have a clutch kit and belt preference. Getting consistent 47-48 MPH track speeds. I run a multi angle helix and an adjustable primary weight. I changed the primary and secondary spring as well. Feel free to PM if your interested. Kits are 499.95 CAD, plus GST. Belts are $149.95 CAD plus GST.

$500 for the Let’s Make a Deal mystery box seems like a lot. Especially when my old 12’ Pro pulled that much track speed with Tony’s clutching. Good Luck!!!

Well, 499 CAD is only like 360 US, so not much of a difference there. I guess should have been more specific. The results were achieved at 7000 feet in 24-26 inches of fresh snow on a good base. Climbing long pulls where ground speed was no more than 5-6 mph, and would hold 47-48 mph track speed. If ground speed increased so did track speed, but thats not how I calculate REAL track speed.
Lets see some video of a 2012 pro getting that track speed in deep snow.....
The 850 only gets 40-41 mph track speed stock.

Can you shed some light on this.... in a Full progressive helix your never are in the first and last angles. As soon as you move your out of the 42 angle and your never completely shifted out so you wont use the 32 angle. So, your suggesting that a 41-33 shift out with lighter weights is achieving better results?
Yes the Secondary spring is much lighter, (125-175) but the lighter weights and stock spring (120-320) wont allow more primary pull as you have gone backwards on effective primary shift out..
Em I missing something here?

If I ever get my sled back, thats what I'm going to investigate!
The bottom end suffers from the straight 42 helix and a belt thats too hard. The 2016 axys belt is still not the answer.

A muti-angle helix is required to get the snap back in the bottom end along with a softer durometer belt and softer secondary spring.
