• 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.

So when looking at the Kaos, they talk about how light the front end is and how easy it is to "pop" the front end up. This seems to be the reoccurring message being sent by Polaris. So my question would be for the guys wanting to run a turbo on this new Kaos.

We all know, if you add a turbo, this equals skis in the air very easy!! So....if you turbo a Kaos that claims already the front end will be in the air easier, will the turbo make stand on end all day?!?!?!?! LOL

I'm guessing anyone wanting a Kaos with a turbo, could end up having to re-valve some shocks or potentially making some other changes to tame it down ????

Just a thought ?????

I would like to know if the new geometry is going to make the sled not pop on the snow when stuck like the pro's do now? The doos I have been around are hard to get them to pop out of a hole when stuck. I like the idea of a more lively pro but don't want to lose how easy they get up on the snow.

Khaos. My guess is a trenching Wheely machine. Fun to goof around on doing tricks. Setup snow probably a blast. Deep pow probably stuck alot. Imagine it will feel more powerful by the seat of the pants. I ride a 163 and would like some more playfulness, but wouldn't want to lose the deep pow and sidehill characteristics. Guess I'm sticking with what I got.

lots of paranoia here, Polaris has not mentioned a wheelie monster, just more play-full. The doo is a wheelie monster STOCK SETTINGS, but simply sucking up the limit strap a hole and #5 on rear springs totally changes this yet its still play-full. I would trust Polaris on this as I dont think they would make a totally out of control sled for the mtn folk, and burandt/adams etc would probably have some input into this as well. I like the Axys but it could use a bit of a lighter feel on the front end

I for one cannot see any difference in skid geometry whether skid profile or arm lg. Looks like it mounts in the tunnel at the same location! Looks like shock changes/limiter strap only? Unless they changed the upper shock pivot location? on the front arm. Can one do a picture overlap of 155 sleds? Mike
