  • 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.

In this video I still did not have enough weight for 7lbs so went back to the 5, also my track started ratcheting real bad in this which may be what you hear as well.

Track ratcheting still an issue? What did you do to fix it?

Fine did bad enough that I now have Avid drivers to replace them.. I am getting rid of the center driver as I have never liked it.

Now I am sure if you just keep your track tight you will be just fine.
 
whats the $1150$ dif. in cost from the pro 2 the new axys? I'm new 2 turbos. so was wondering how much if at all do they shorten the life of the top end? I under stand u can treat things bad and get them 2 break (not worming the engine / bad oil, ect..) but from a non turbo 2 turbo treated the same is their a difference in reliability ? looks like the kit keeps the stock pipe is their a gain or diff.. if u get a tuned pipe..? do I need to bring my sled 2 a rep to get the mapping ? and how complete is the kit{full clutch kit} just buy the kit and point the skies at the sky :D !!!! I know I'm rambling so ill stop their. thanks for all the input!!! keep it steep-deep and pray for snow

I don't have a turbo on my Axys yet but my take on the top end issue is that the top end actually is better off . . . It has pressure on both sides of the piston being you are pushing boost on both sides ( boost in case and compression in cylinder )

That's how it works in my Alcohol Blower motors ...

Now we all need a $3500 Supercharger!!!???
 
thanks killer time! does anyone know about the pipe and how complete the kit is and if I need 2 bring the sled 2 the dealer can I get is reflashed 2 stock??? or r we SOL after install of the turbo :D. being a first year engine I do wonder about how its going to hold up!! thanks all

Pipe?

The kit is complete
 
thanks all was worried about $hItInG on the warranty after I spent extra $$$ to extend it but sounds like silber has us in mind.!! its nice when they keep us non sponsored jokers able to afford the mods and still work with the factories restrictions of what we can and cant do to our toys gota luuuuuuve that!!!! any body know about the pipe??? does a tuned pipe hurt- help- or just not make any dif..? and just was wondering, stock intake sufficient or is it beneficial to add extra intake volume {slp or something similar} thanks all for you replys and help :D

We recommend leaving the stock pipe and intake. Our sleds are all stock with nothing but our kit added

Pretty sure a turbo is outside the warranty realm of coverage....
 
as long as we can flash it back 2 stock everything un bolts after that we can still have warranty!!! shshshshshsh just don't tell them. if the topend pops ill pay 4 that but if theirs a defect in something I want them 2 fix that. with a turbo I am pos. they will blame all problems on it from tunnel 2 tub 2 melted wires if silber will re flash 2 stock we can still have our cake and eat it to :D!!! hope this is the case or I'm going to hold off on the turbo till warranty is up and I'm pos. their is no defects in the sled.. that will blow but that's the safe thing 2 do. don't want 2 just live with a pipe and can for three years but they do come right off for warranty. thanks 4 the reply on the pipe boston! and are u able{willing} to re flash to stock if warranty work is needed??
