• 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 cant answer how TRS did his, But the way Ive done it is just take a piece of steel tubing (the same size you want the window to be) and sharping the edge with a grinder. Then get the track in the shop press and have at it.

I built a press years ago to open up the windows on the old Polaris tracks. I modified the press to do the center port.
SRXSRULE’s way will work for sure. Just make a jig.

Nice set-up!

Mine was nothing that nice, But I did make a fixture to keep everything square and in time.

I don’t like to trim rails.
Glad you like the track.
Edit:
If I keep this sled I’ll get a set of center port drivers from Robbie.


do you have the 3" Axys w/chaincase?

So how did it compare to your axys? Only sled I haven't rode.
Dead even climbing. (Multiple runs)
Vs 18 axys 162x3 SLP stg 2 and A2DSLEDWORKS clutching.

Edge to the axys in handling. (Even with the lockout rear shock the mtn cat can’t keep the nose down in steep terrain)

The wide panels inhibit the cat also.

I'm running a 153x3 claw on my turbo pro now. I just used the 2 drivers and left the middle one off.
Stock drivers from axys with chain case put on my 12 pro. No ratchet issues. Might be ratchet issues if that is a 162 track though

I run a 162"×3" power claw on my axys also,I love how it just keeps digging in when I'm almost stuck and finds something to bit and get me out. I did the avid drivers and what a difference when rolling off the truck deck. It roles from the top off the ramp all the way down. Stock I would half to drag or ride it off.

I run a 162 x 3 PC as well since last year. Using stock drivers with the center driver removed. Zero ratcheting when track is tensioned properly. Very durable track and it does out climb the other 4 Axys 3" in our group.

Any more reviews on this buying a new 850 thinking of putting this track on right away. The 3 inch series 7 is less than great. Kind of on the fence of a 2.6 or 3 with chaincase. Driver change and rail cut with 2.6 option or a c-3 belt drive on chaincase to make this work effectively. Any info would be great.
