• 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.

I have never posted in here but I have a question I need some help with. So I have the 156 X3 at 56lbs the new series 8 155 seems to be 17 lbs lighter? Am I crazy for not switching this out. I think the 2.6 my friend has is better in a lot of conditions and only once was my X3 actually better. Why would I not change it out and what would my X3 be worth with only 400 miles on it?

Seriously, the series 8 165 is only 46lb? Sounds like a someday upgrade for me, assuming it works well. Only hearsay here, but word is that around 2.7 is the optimum lug for an AXYS. Any bigger, including the x3, and snow evacuation gets worse. Lot's of good reports of cutting down to around 2.7 (I know there are some threads with info on that); a track around that lug height and 10+ lb lighter is a win-win if you can find and afford it.
