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.
I have Zbroz on my 13 Pro and my 18 Axys. You are going to need to have some shock work done. I just bought Exit shocks instead. I love the setup, That's why the Axys got the same. I honestly don't think you can go wrong with Zbroz, Alternative impact, K mod or Skinz
Alternate Impact , I've had 3 pairs his on different sleds great product. My 14' Xm Summit has them now. Get ones with the lower Heim joint cuts designed to shear if you hit something and I'll tell ya It Works I drilled a iced stump on side of mountain rd coming back to truck at ssd speed I was moving, hit it launched me sled almost Endoed
No damage to sled / Arms, lower module etc. but that joint sheared where it was said to swapped out the extra one he suggests you buy with kit in 15min on side road with soar shoulder and hauled back to truck.
