• 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.

850 Khaos Matryx Slash 146 with a 155" lightweight mountain track under it, and 34" ski stance - thoughts? Or maybe it would be better with a 650. Seems like it could be really fun! And a decent wife sled. Is the "Skinny Sled" finally available to the mases?

Yep - ultra short tunnel. Maybe even a custom, smaller tank? 7 gallons or so ought to be enough for a quick rip. Fun for the wife and/or older kids, but powerful enough to be a capable play sled for full-sized guys. Like a trials bike for the snow.

I've got a feeling you wouldn't be gaining much. Wouldn't really lose anything either though I suppose. Likely just unnecessary, especially considering your wife and kids PROBABLY don't do much for re entries, bowties, and hopovers. That's just a guess based on the fact that a 650 is being considered.

Also not sure what a smaller tank would accomplish... I'd just put 7 gallons in the factory tank if you were going on a quick rip and had concern about the weight.

I would guess doo and poo have played around with tunnel length to land where they are at. Too short and it's tough to get snow up to the cooler. Lynx is shorter yet and they have the deflector deal.
