• 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’ve been waiting for someone to post up a decent Khaos Boost vid and Brett Turcotte just did, the Khaos Boost 155 is MUCH more manageable than I expected! For what it’s worth he was on the 3” track.

I was on the fence thinking it would just be out of control, fun, but out of control wild haha. I ended up SC’ing the Pro 165 Boost instead. Now I’m thinking all you Khaos Boost folks aren’t as crazy as I was thinking ;)

what do you guys think? Does this change anyone’s mind?
excited to see more vids of this beast.

These sleds are getting crazy, I can't believe that thing is factory stock.

Anyone else ever feel like sleds are too easy to ride these days? Sometimes I miss riding in places that we now bypass because there's no challenge to it anymore. It really makes me want to just buy a 600 or 650 just for more of a challenge. It would make you focus a lot more on technique rather than relying on power to help you.

That new Khaos 146" with the 650 in it would be a really fun sled, and with less power and less track it would add some challenge on steeper hills or in deeper snow. I'm honestly contemplating going that way instead of Boost

That’s totally fine.

Probably for the best if you feel that way.

I’m always looking for more with the snow we have here.

Was the ski-doo down a cylinder? Or maybe they made a mistake and put a turbo sticker on but not an actual turbo?
That was embarrassing.

It’s similar to the aftermarket guy’s testing silber doo 850 vs silber poo 850.

The doo trenches on takeoff and takes awhile to get on top of the snow.

Once moving the Polaris really shows the added power and widens the gap.

This video is impressive not only what the 155 can do but how it compares to the doo! I'm glad they lined them up and even had Jon Jean, the doo rider say he was impressed. I know most guys including me, aren't anywhere near Turcottes skill level but how he could pop it out of the snow and spin it around was unreal.

I can’t get over how bad it sounds. Been a few explanations around here for it, but you’d think the would want them dialed for any filming. Noticed the same on the one Matt Entz had.

Burandt’s sounds perfect, so does the one Dan Adams filmed with.

I could live with that weird wavering sound if the sled rips like it does in that video.

the doo takes too much time to climb on the snow to beat a short race on a hill with a poo.

the doo engine is awesome but the power it makes is not fully applied to move forward most of the time.

people love their "stuck vertically" pictures on Instagram but it's not very useful to climb a hill or beat a poo with the skis hovering on top of the snow.
