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.
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.
That sled was built by a guy that that lived in Helena .Mt. His last name was Scott, I'm thinking it was Norm but that might be his dads name. He used to go by the name of Highmark on these forums about 5 or 6 years ago. That sled really ripped.
Yeah, I rode that sled. It was built by Curt (Highmark) and Norm Scott (Papa Highmark) when they lived in Helena.
I raced a CMX with a UB watercraft triple in it...and a couple other sleds back in 2003 or so. It's an XCR800 with an aerocharger 66 on it. GenII chassis with an Ekholm tunnel.
It was running low boost that day and was making about 250hp. It hauled major arse up hills.
I saw a dyno sheet on it. I'll see if I can dig it up.
I have a couple of vids of that sled too on putfile...but putfile took a crap so I'll have to reload them.
BTW is her zookie as dirty as her feet???? YACK!!!!
Belt didn't break at all. lol! don't think it was the same after that, it flung it only 100" in the air is all. bout the time it took for the sled to tackle me a couple of times. all that broke after 25-30 rolls and 2 endos was a brake lever & Mtn strap...
