• 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.

All tracks are driven by the nubs. Extroverts don't drive the track unless the track is loose and skips over the nubs.
That's not a great explanation but maybe it makes enough sense?
U don't want to drive in the window.

Makes sense, although I've been reading that the new drivers are extroverts, seems that isnt true.

So all slash chassis based sleds are literally a cooler with snowmobile parts attached? Pics of the chassis/cooler ect with...the tank.. I'll show you mine if anyone wants to show me the one we all wanna be on right now

Polaris must have some proprietary tech planned or going on that hasn't been fully explained or experienced yet. Let me cut to the chase, how much extra is the intercooler going to cost and if not oem will that void the warranty?

Damn I hope I find one in the wild...

Looks like 6 tooth drivers to me. That would mean 2.75 track.

Sent it
There is also a 146 x 2.6 that we have not seen and I can not order and it won't fit a 21 sba 650 before I get my 850 cause the tracks don't exist yet and if they do I have not seen it on the YouTubes, facenecks or dark interwebs...

those are not really extroverts on that new shaft set-up and there is no anti-stab. those are definitely 6 tooth drivers.

that video was done at the dealer in Reno, NV. If I knew they had those sleds, I would have gone there today to have a look. I was at the dealer in Carson City only about 20 miles away.

Have you tried the drivers?
Did you not like how they work?

Or did you change your gender?
(That sort of thing is really popular in Oregon)
My point is the new drivers do not have the full radius support to the track like older drivers did. This would likely be causing vibration that TRS has mentioned. This vibration could be a possible source of fatigue to the end of the driveshaft causing failure.

I wasn’t aware TRS has ridden the 2022?

These drivers have the same non rounded profile as my avid drivers do.

I’m planning to ride one of the prototypes when it’s in Alaska. 3-15 through 4-12

It will be interesting to see after that ride. I agree on the vibration and fatigue. I would hope after all our R&D for Polaris on the 21s that the the vibration and racheting would be gone on the 22s. There is definitely way more contact area with the drivers to the track.

I gotta look at my Summit. They vibrate more than my 2.6 RMK ever did. Like volcano buster says....how would you stop vibration if there is nothing between the drive volutes of the intraverts....it's gotta vibrate, the driver ain't round???

I don't get it. Someone NEUTRAL needs to ride this thing.

3.5pitch will vibrate. Even the Alpha with larger 7tooth drivers and 10" idlers, vibrates and makes a lot of noise.

I think if the drivers are round they will not grip the track.

Confirmed today, extroverts, new rails, and anti-stab wheels.
What’s the world coming too.

You can blame me :) I’m not a fan of the current design and have bitched about it incessantly. Maybe they did it to shut me up?

The current design does cause issues in certain snow and the 6 tooth has brought even more challenges even with fully clipped and properly adjusted tracks.

Probably safe to assume they did internal testing and listened to sponsored riders / ambassadors.........

You don’t need to worry about any blame.......
