  Seems to me the PRS community is being left out. D.T has forums for the Rev models, Mach Z/ RT, MX, Elite and even a Mini Z forum. Considering that the PRS was one of the longest models produced from 1985 through 1994 I think it deserves it own forum. 

 

 Maybe as group we can voice our thoughts to have our own exclusive PRS forum.

I would say send a PM to Pitgrunt?  We will see the reaction.  I would say that you definitely have a good point, especially considering these sleds have really come into their own as far as collectability status. There is no doubt, if you think about how well our sleds were received by the crowd last year at Ormstown. They are appreciated and attract as much attention and interest as just about any sled you could put beside them.

A new forum for three guys? Come on man, just continue on the Vintage Forum, not like having a PRS only forum will make a whole new crowd post on it?

 

Anywho, I started a new project.......... :D

Maybe only 3 or 4 of us right now, unlike the hundreds of hard core collectors flooding the Elite and Mini Z forums. I just think the PRS model sleds deserve their own forum instead of being lumped in with everything else. I don't know how the system works but can't image there would be a cost involved in creating another forum.

I think MaxmachZ is just joking around. There are a lot of PRS enthusiasts on here, more than enough to warrant a separate forum. Of course, like many of the other forums including this one, there will be slow periods with not much happening. 
 

David, that hood looks great, whats the story on your project?  
 

Macho6, you can message Pitgrunt and let us know what he says, or if you don’t want to, let me know and I will ask him. If needed, we could start to collect a list of names of members who think this would be a good idea.

Triple 809 single pipe with RER. Certainly will be some challenges, but I'm in no hurry, and I always wanted to do it as the FRX sleds are all hoarded up and WAY out of my financial abilities! This will be way more reliable, with reverse, oil injection, hydro brake, etc. Not quite sure what to do with the seat look yet? I want it to look very OEM - ish, I may move the "formula plus" decals off the hood, and have some similar font style "800 triple RAVE" for that area and then have my sign guy do something in vinyl paint on the seat....but not sure what?

Wow, sound like a fun sled when all is said and done!

 

 

Seat could use original font but read “ Formula Plus Triple” or “ Formula Plus 800” or “SkiDoo 800”. Not sure what year chassis you are basing this on as far as a seat?

Please sign me up for the PRS forum...!

 

When I started my thread about a 1993 Mach1 restoration, I remember not being able to find a PRS department, only to end up posting the thread under Vintage...

 

I am not criticizing the moderators here, but some of the categories, departments and sub-forums are a bit...inconsistent...? In my opinion, PRS as well as triples could very well end up as sub-forums under Vintage, because that's what they really are, at least to me. I would also say the triple owners have got much more in common with PRS people than the two cylinder Mach Z's...?

 

I am looking forward to reading more about the above mentioned triple conversion. What year chassis are you using...? BTW, early Formula Plus decals on a second generation hood looks absolutely brilliant...!

Yes, times are changing and an F Chassis forum would eventually be needed I suppose, although a lot of the collectable F chassis can go under the triple forum.  I notice guys like Snorander posts a lot of F chassis stuff, and has to go under the ZX and earlier forum.   A PRS exclusive would be a good start.

What would be neat is we could start to keep some good threads pinned, with info such as facts and figures, production numbers, horsepowers, carb specs etc. Stuff that keeps coming up now and again would be easy for people to find.
