• 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.

Thinking about putting a new track on my 163 khaos next year. Currently running the stock 2.6 track. I ride on the west coast. Was looking for opinions on a few tracks. Camso epic 280. Camso X3, and Composit 770-3r. Strengths/weaknesses, comparisons between each other and stock. Also any other tracks that might be better that I didn’t mention. Thanks

Epic 280 only lasted a few rides for me, under normal conditions that other tracks do fine with. Warranty attempt failed.

Damn, only a few rides huh?.. I figured it wouldn’t be quite as durable being over 10 pounds lighter than most tracks, which was also one of the reasons I was interested, but a few rides isn’t worth $800+ dollars

Have you considered cutting down a Camso X3 3.0 to 2.7? You'd need to change drivers. X2 on the 2.5 CE, fully clipped, better for heavier density snow, durability, more snow evac, than the poo stockers. You can get in 2.86 pitch, also.
