Member Sled Builds
This forum can be found in the SnowMobiles > Performance/Modified forum.
The Member Sled Builds forum is a place to discuss all the mods you have done to your sled, especially major builds.
We started this over the summer as a place to follow along on long term build projects.

This forum can be found in the SnowTalk forum.
Finally a place where you can go to get honest opinions and evaluations of all the sled products out there.
If you have ever purchased a product, and have some thoughts you want to share with the world about it, this is the place!

Lastly, a special THANK YOU to our PREMIUM MEMBERS!!
In early November The SnoWest forums were seeing the effects of our growth and the unexpected early snowfall, this raised our traffic levels faster than we were planning on and caused our forum severs to crash several times on busy nights. As a result we invested some of our Premium Membership dues back into our servers and doubled the total amount of RAM in each of them, this extra memory allowed us to change out the entire database structure and make it MUCH more efficient and faster for all members.

The site will always remain free for those not interested in the premium features.

There are no plans nor any discussions about ever making this a pay only site.

The plan though is to keep increasing the benefits of paid membership and making the Premium Package more and more attractive as time goes by.

Guests don't login, users do. So as long as you have a login you will continue to be a standard user.
