    impeller question

    would an impeller off of a 2001 slx with a 1200 , make much of a difference on my virage with a 1200 .
    according to the manuals , the only difference is that mine has radial blade , while the slx has a large overlap . both are progressive pitches . what ever this means

    i'm not really to up on impellers but i am looking to get more out of my machine with simple bolt on's . and the price of a new one from solas is way up there

    and yes txpro ...................i am looking into the reeds . got a pm into jay right now !

    thanks guys

    LOL,the prop you got from me is a 707,thats the prop the 01 slx and pro runs.the stock prop for your virage is a skat style,great takeoff but not as strong a midrange or top end as the 707

    yes that 707 is on my sltx , felt sorry for my gal ......she was just to far behind , but wow , what a difference . now i want another .
    a guy on here is parting out a 2001 slx , and just waiting to hear if he still has the impeller .

    or does anyone else have one or something similar???

    The 707 will work well...you could also go with the stock 2000 slx/virage tx impeller the 202. Doesn't have the overlap that the 707 has. I prefer the 202 for modifying.

    after seeing what the 707 did for my sltx , i want to do the virage !

    A constant pitch has the same pitch from leading edge to trailing edge, A progressive pitch starts low and the pitch increases up the blade. cp----19 degrees the whole way. pp-----starts at 14 and ends up 19. (that is not a real prop pitch, just an example of how it works.

    you will plane better with a progressive pitch impellor.

    You might have misunderstood what I was saying...the 202 is just as good if not better than the 707...thus using either one is fine. The 202 is stock on a 2000 Virage Tx and is not the 2001 stock 554 swirl blade impeller that you have.
