• 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.

Last year after installing an x3 track on my 21 khaos, i noticed some rubbing sound when the rear suspension would compress. I never saw anything obvious, but now that its apart i see this. Anyone seenthis before? Track running on limit straps?

Is there slack in the top loop of the strap so when the suspension is compressed the limiter rides up high enough to make contact with the track? The abrasion looks like it doesn't get a lot of pressure on it like if the full weight and contact with the track had it pinned to the cross bar.

Could it be from the track being to loose?

Possibly? But i would think it would have ratcheted? I keep my track pretty tight.

Nothing looks bent, i think it is just barely rubbing. Kinda wonder if the drive nubs on the x3 track might be just a hair taller?

Everything is apart to replace the rails and install actual 3" avid extrovert, ive been using the stock 2.86 drivers, that seem to be working just fine. But maybe the slight larger diameter driver will help this as well

The driver change to 3" may prove just to be enough to stop this. And the shaft and straps will clock abit differently relative to the track as the arm strokes. What does the track look like?

Track looks fine. Your can barely tell. Funny thing about the drivers. Setting one on top of the other, they are the same or extremely close in diameter.
