  • 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.


VP C12 & Silber Turbo

Jan 3, 2016
Just added a Silber turbo to my 19 RMK 800. Absolutely amazing. I ride at 8000-11,000ft and using my #5 spring all was great. Decided to try my #7 and encountered some detonation, guessing I need more octane. Was running straight 91 non-eth. I happen to have a sealed 5gal drum of VP C12 I use in a 2stroke dirt bike. Wondering if I can add a gal or so to each fill up of 91 to resolve my det issue..?? Any advice is appreciated!

Of course you can add some in,at your elevation I'm kinda surprised your getting det though, if your at 91, Try to get up to 95 octane and I'm sure you'll be good. My pro ran 5# at 5500 feet on 94 pump.

Thanks for the responses guys. I think I just got to excited to grab that #7 and forgot about the octane. Once it triggered the Det on the screen i shut it down and switched back to the 5. I‘ll search out some 100ll. Cheers.
