• 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"


    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.

We used these last season and have added them to our website. We really like the tone and the lightweight and size of the slincer. It is not the lightest on the market but it is close to stock sound levels and is heavy enough it will not break or rattle apart. I believe by removing the stock one and adding this one we saved 8-10 lbs.

Agreed, it has a nice sound that is close to stock at idle, mid range it's a deeper toned but still around stock db's. When exhaust valves open and WOT it sounds great without the tinny or obnoxious sound levels of some and wasn't much more than stock db's. I think they are setting up a new sound measuring machine to certify the levels. I was just using my personal sound meter that I use for testing other snowmobile items. Nice fit and finish, ceramic coated to keep underwood temps down and heat in the pipe while still a significant weight savings.
