• 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.

Haha this is a great question. Sure would be nice to know how the tune in the sleds out running around is going to compare to the tune sent out in the production unit.

I feel like the crickets allude to the smell of lead in the morning.

So basically with zero input you just project whatever is in your brain onto polaris?

You “feel”???

Maybe wait for some actual information?

The video vohk made indicated ethanol could be used in the turbo.........

Brand sensitive bunch. I ride Polaris and have a boost coming. Wouldn’t you put in a bit of 100ll on a fleet of prototype boost sleds for test ride day? I would if I designed the 850..... ;)

Yes/no depending on the tune. I think that the pipe waste gate is the key to being able to tune effectively with pump gas, as you can control so many dynamics of the internal workings of a 2 stroke with it. Don’t get me wrong, I get low octane and det, but this thing is a whole diff beast with that second waste gate.

Anyone else notice some of the Boost sleds sound like they are hitting a rev limiter every time they are held wide open?

Turcotte had this happen in his latest video and mentioned that they fixed it for his next one. I'm guessing Polaris is still tweaking the clutching and having guys try out various set ups, some obviously are revving way too high. I believe Burandt captured 8800rpm in one of his videos

What about the 2 years or so of testing ? me thinks it`s BS. Rep told me they are bringing out another tune, So clutching off, tune off, and it `s being out there testing for a few years ?

SO, what your hearing isn't the rev limiter, its the wastegate cycling to control boost/power levels so the sled sort of flutters. It doesnt hurt how they run at all. The engineering staff on site when we were riding did mention they were working on the correction tables to smooth it out as it does sound a bit funky. All the test sleds we rode did it in one capcity or another for a moment when you would fully stuff the track and load it down then it smoothed out and was dead steady climbing. Also, all the sled we were riding pulled 83-8400 pretty consistently across the board. I've rode a LOT of different turbo mod sleds from all the major supliers and can assure guys this sled is already leagues ahead of that.

This fluttering sound is especially noticeable since the exhaust has a 'divorced downpipe' within the can the lack of mixing makes the 2 seperate exhaust notes very obvious when the one is cycling vs all meshing through one exhaust path.


Oh yeah, and if guys are worried maybe the boost isn't going to be as good as everyone says, im sure about 100 people would be glad to take over your snowcheck for you! lol

Interesting. I know Matt Entz in particular had some videos where it was making those noises, but it looked like it was still running perfectly. Thanks for the clarification.

well if they had been testing this turbo sled for a couple of years like they said, it would have been dialed in by now. seems like they are doing the testing now.
