    01 GTX-DI upgrades?

    Hello all, I have a 2001 GTX-DI that I am trying to get some more hole shot out of. I am willing to give up a little on the top end for it. Are any of you guys running a 3 blade prop? I would like to put in a 3 blade and a new grate, any suggestions? How many rpm's will I loose in the process and how can I get them back?

    Thanks in advance.
    -Jamie

    It has a three blade on it now (same prop as carbed 947s).

    Ya know, I never even looked. My bad, we just got it a couple weeks ago. What can I do for more hole shot without going into the engine?

    You could take a little pitch off the back edge of the prop.

    Still...

    Our '02 GTX (carbed 947) beats our '00 RX out of the hole (the GTX has Proks and jets, the RX is stock but somewhat lighter) and stays with my XPL (a lot lighter, but not quick to plane). It even stayed with my buddy's 70mph GPR out of the hole.

    I am not sure how much more you could get even by re-pitching. That hull planes fast for what it is. You can increase power, but the only real source for mods is PPG and their DI upgrades (you really CAN NOT to much of anything else to that engine).

    That is one of the best hulls SD ever made with a really efficient engine. I would suggest riding it and enjoyment of said ride.

    Thanks for the input, maybe I will just leave well enough alone.

    Thanks,
