    Hello wash0604,

    Just wondering what the end result of your conversation with Skat Trak was about impellers with this pump setup? I've got a 158mm 14 vein on one of my skis, and was thinking of changing the impeller for better top speed as well.

    Any luck? I have been meaning to call, but keep getting sidetracked....


    What 15/24 are you running? Skat or Solas?

    Thanks in advance,
    Sean

    skat pump

    hi washingtonrider!my skat pump has a skat impeller.the generalfeeling out there is that the 14 vein skat pump is no good for top speed.i will probably take there advice and fit a 05 pump with a 14/20 solas dynafly.ski has great hook up but cant seem to pull the correct rpm,s.probably need to try a 14/20 in the skat pump to get rpm,s up.i am hoping for 70mph out of the skat pump before i change it.

    hi washington ! i didn,t answer your question .skat trak say that the pump is in use by many close course racers and it has great holeshot and hookup they also said that they would need a complete list of my ski mods that i have to be able to make any recomendations,so basically the guys on the forum said the same thing ,so its an 05 pump then!!!!
