• 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"


    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.

Straight from a local BC Polaris dealer who I have a good relationship with - he rode the exact sled turcotte rode in his video, only a few days later.

That specific unit still had the old primary clutch on it, not the new one. I have only heard this from him and over the phone, I DO NOT have think they want this to be known because no other bc dealer or rider that rode this sled has mentioned it.

I agree with others that they’re rushing these boost sleds out to compete with the existing factory turbos, sure it’s been in R&D for multiple years but I don’t think these sleds / power plants have much for true mountain testing on them - just my opinion.

All That said I have one snowchecked and can’t wait to get on it, but honestly I am expecting some headaches too but I’m willing to accept that for the beast it looks like it will be when it’s working properly

Chrisco rode that sled.
It had the new clutch on it, unless turcotte had two identical sleds.
