• 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.

Interested to see how you like the skid in the lower hole and the longer front shock. Been thinking about doing that on my 850 174

Its cheap and it helps a little, but it's still a 174. I've actually been running like that since last season. I'll let ya know if the Raptor Khaos mods help. With that said, if I had it to do over again I'd assuredly put an anti-stab kit on it, I think I may have hosed myself by not doing that.

Well .... guess I'm not going to be able to give anyone any feedback on the CE2.5 being the right track for awhile. Looks like the sled may get totaled out =/

Yeah, I can't tell if the flange for the bearing retainer is warped, or if it's just that lip that's folded back. If the flange and front of the tunnel are all warped, then it could be totaled (not that I'm the one to ask what's an acceptable tweak and what's bad bad). I'd take a straight-edge and see if there's any significant warping or buckling. If not, I'd just work that lip back down with a hammer and punch and run it...
