• 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.

For the fronts and fts that is true, but the rear track shock will depend on reservoir mounting on the shock. The rear upper idlers got moved inward so certain model shocks will no longer fit. The Burandt Fox shocks had to be changed to accommodate this.

I think it was a last minute change as they released the Matryx, possibly after that video was made. Burandt also initially said everything would swap directly, but later said Fox was redesigning the RTS to fit because of the idler wheel change.

I'm pretty sure they have, there was a Matryx RMK in their booth at Hay Days. Just make sure you order the Matryx model shocks.
would the matryx rear shock then be backwards compatible with the original Khaos skid? looking for new shocks for my Khaos skid, but would like to take them and put them on the Matryx next year

Do you think it's too early to say fox resolved that issue?
Fox is working on it, the one at haydays had the older style rear axys arm to make it work. The shock caps they use are a forging and last I had heard when they first got a proto to do fitup was they had a plan it was just a long slow process to get it ready and into production.

So for guys wanting fox airs before mid winter your most likely going to need to run old axys rear arm and wheel combo. They are super cheap so it would be pretty good solution in the mean time. Or litterally just make some spacer tubes to push the wheels out on the existing one.

Additionally.
The older style rear arm is going to be slightly stronger anyways.

Since it has not been turned down in diameter to match the bearing ID.
