• 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.


Need Some Front End Help on 2004 Pro-X

I have a 2004 Polaris Pro-x sled. Installed is VanAmberg tunnel, custom Edge rear suspension with Ride-EFX shocks, 162x15x2.5 track SLP Powder Pro skis, etc. My problem is that the front end or skis seem to be hunting and not tracking very well. Seems like the skis are not digging into the snow very well. So the question is how can I get more weight transferred to the front skis? Set the front shocks to the lightest setting and ?
Thanks for your replies.

Sounds like a pretty cool sled. You should post up some pics.

Is this happening mostly on the trail? The ski width of the Edge chassis was pretty common and not unusual for it to follow other tracks.

That being said I would check the usual suspects, ski alignment, toe out and camber. As for more ski pressure you might actually try pre-loading the front ski springs more. Keep in mind that this is all a balancing act. Adding more pressure can make it harder to roll over as well. If you have removed your sway bar this may be a non-issue anyway.

I'm not sure what your rear suspension is like. You might want to check where your limiter straps are positioned. The higher up they are positioned the more ski pressure you will have.

I'm sure you're going to have a some trial and error with that setup, but I hope I gave you a few ideas anyway.

Tighten up the front limiter straps to put more pressure on the skis, and reduce powder performance.
