• 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.

Im interested in who snow checked a 2020 or stayed with their 2019. If so what did you snow check??

I ordered a 2020 850 Khaos 155" 2.6" that I may convert to a 163". I'm happy with the updates on the 2020 motor and continued 4 year warranty. I might even keep this sled a couple years until the new chassis. Anyone else??

Keeping my 19 850, its not worth the $4000 dollar loss and if my motor goes I'll get a 2020 engine for free.

Keeping the 2019 850. Doing a 155" to 163" swap with Ice Age Khaos geometry rails and longer Khaos front track shack. Pretty sure the bearing thing will take out my engine at some point even though I've got 8xx miles of all deep-beating the hell out of it days here in Colorado and its still holding together. So planning on updated engine at some point too.

Not sure yet on the arm. Will have to see if Ice Age moves the arm mount location on the rails.

When I talked to IceAge about this a few weeks ago they were thinking using the rmk profile might be the better way for deep snow. But wanted to do some testing first.

Selling 18 Pro 156 x3 in the fall

155 2.6 Khaos with Kurts gearing/clutching - snow checked.
I just talked with Jeff there at Kurt's. Looks like their selling a lot of them. They have a 2019 155" 850 RMK that they converted the "new" Ice Age 163" Khaos geometry rails last week to test side by side with the stock 155" Khaos. It's of course a little different because the 163 conversion they did uses the new M-67 2.62" track. Ive never spent any time on that M-67 track, anyone else have some miles on it?

Any results or opinions on the testing between the two?

They all said they had the same oppion as mine and some others that the new Khaos shocks are way better than any previous offerings from Polaris. As far as the two tracks the stock 2.6" and the M-67 the snow conditions were not the best for good comparisons. Thats why I was wondering if anyone else has good all around time on this new track.

Sold my 19 850 163 2.6”, loved it after reflash and a little clutch work.
Ordered a 2020 850 163 2.6” along with a Boondocker sidekick kit.
Super stoked��
