  • 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.

Which 700 do you recommend for Turbo kit?

All,

Posted a thread here with little action thus far. Added some fuel pressure and changed a helix and it keeps getting faster, so addicting. https://www.snowest.com/forum/threads/old-school-leafer-carb-turbo-looking-for-help-tuning….458573/
After some research and seeing my buddy drag home an insane 1000 cat to swap in his 79 el tigre my new goal is to try and get close to 200hp at sea level. I have decided to drop a carbed Polaris 700 in this sled considering the GTX2867R already in it. Buddy can help me learn the P85 and the pipe should almost drop in. 😁 I don't know much about these motors but will certainly get familiar soon. Question: What donor sled should I target purchasing? Haven't decided if I will take the skid and/or the secondary/chaincase but the motor is a key first step.

98 XC, 02 XC are cheap local deals currently or do I look for an Edge X , RMK, or Pro X? Don't know much about these. I have read many boost the non-ves 700. Let me know your thoughts please!

Does it need to be old and carbed?
how about a 700 dragon?
It does not. But then I would need to buy carbs and the stock pipe on the older 700's. Also looking for non-ves but suppose I could bypass.

Why do you recommend the Dragon for my plan? Better motor, rear suspension, clutching? Reverse would be nice on a vintage ;) I will probably take the secondary, chaincase, and suspension/track to minimize variables. Guess I need to confirm the donor has the same width tunnel!

Well my thought was dealing with a fuel controller might be easier than fiddling with power jets.
For the purpose of drag racing a boondocker controller combined with their kit or a different one. I think would work well.
At some point I might turn my 09 turbo drsgon into a drag sled.

dragon tunnels are narrow. 15.5" inside I believe.

Well this is actually a good idea, there are some used boondocker kits available fairly cheap.

I would need to use the single pipe from older layout pre rider forward late 90's early 2000's. Issue? Has port timing changed?

So it's a Dragon I should target? Any others Fusion? I would still need to get a updated suspension if the Dragon is too narrow but I might as well do this right.

So, if the pipes not going to be an issue, what should I go find while the prices drop this spring?

the cfi 6-800 motors that the boondocker kits were built for used what they call a small block motor.
the earlier 7-800 motors were big block motors.
