• 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.


IGX suspension vs mountain suspension??

Feb 18, 2022
I'm wondering what the main differences between these two suspensions are. I have an axys 850 assault and was looking at the ice age 155 rails for it and am wondering would I be wasting money extending a sled with the IGX rear suspension? I figure by the time I get done converting this to a "mountain sled" I'd have about 2k in parts with the rails, wheels, track, and a arm kit. Plus add some if I have to get new drivers for a 155 track. :( I guess I'm kind of just wondering if it'd be worth doing all this or counting my losses (which could be more than what it would cost to convert this sled) and selling and buying a khaos or something. My sled had about 650 miles on it. I suppose I could sell my current track and front suspension or whatever comes off the sled to make some money back.
