• 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.

Overheating Problems in Marginal Snow?

Looking for the ultimate solution for your overheating problems in marginal snow conditions? Let’s face it, with a 3" track marginal snow conditions are any time you are on the trail! By installing the MTNTK performance Tunnel Cooler you will double your cooling surface area and coolant capacity. We started with a fresh design and had our own profile made because the other coolers on the market do not fit the tunnel properly and do not allow you to put the rivets back in the correct locations. This cooler is very simple to install and requires no cutting or welding to your original tunnel cooler. All connections are made between the fuel tank and the air box to maintain a stock appearance. This tunnel cooler is available in a 5 foot length for maximum cooling or 3 foot length to increase cooling without the 5' weight penalty. The 5 foot cooler and added coolant capacity totals an 11 pound gain, but the cooling cannot be overstated. The weight is far less noticeable than being stuck on the side of the trail with an overheat. With the 5' cooler you realistically maintain a 125 deg engine temp even when going down the trail. The 3' cooler will dramatically reduce temps and for most sleds it will be the solution you have been dreaming of. The engine runs much better when the heat is managed properly and you only need to be concerned about hyfax lubrication which is easily overcome with the use of the factory "scratchers". It is a liberating experience to ride without your engine overheating. We have been told that overheating on the trail is something that you have to live with because of the "modern" design of mountain sleds. This is simply not true. The weight wars on sleds has been beneficial at making sleds easier to ride and more capable but the cooling systems have become ineffective. These coolers are the answer you have been looking for.

Best mod out there, especially when you guys shorten your tunnel.
I have the 5’ on two sleds, wouldn’t be without one.

Ditto to what TRS says, I have lost 17 lbs the last two years of riding and my efforts have been reduced and my sled really likes it! "Two Handed Pushaways" really work!
Tony, I am trying to get up to Cody this summer and will stop and look you up and buy coffee or whatever. PM me with your shop address and phone if you would.

Not as important as using both hands to push away from the table until season starts. Your sled will be happier with the additional cooling and you will be in much better shape. Just saying.:face-icon-small-hap

What's funny is, I posted in another thread about Polaris putting the bulkhead cooler on the Pro-RMKs for better cooling and got hammered for even suggesting adding that minimal amount of weight........

My 174 never gets hot if I run scratchers and I run the ported snow flap. I would not want the extra cooler. Funny no one ever mentions the other downside with the cooler. Try riding a Cat and you will find out. If you get stuck, the track pulls snow over and passed that cooler, it partially melts the snow as it passes and dumps the slush in front of the track to quickly set up and make a mound that can be almost impossible to climb over. Experienced this a few times with a front tunnel mounted heat exchanger.

You won’t get that from me, Polaris started marginalizing the cooling system starting with the PRO purporting a “weight war”.

I tried to post a video of riding my Mtn Tek turbo with the large tunnel cooler on a raining September day but it won’t upload. Stayed around 122 temp. Rode it around to prove a point to a buddy about the cooler. It’s nice not worrying about your scratchers and overheating.
