    repitch solas ?

    I have a 14/19 solas that has been trued by impros. I notice some people are pitching them to 14/18 or 18.5. What is the purpose or gain for that pitch? Here are my rpm and results ( rpm are down because of the 110 degree heat and 1700 ft elevation). 12/19.5 impros stock repitch 7550 rpm at 65.5 mph. 14/19 solas 7700 rpm at 66.8 mph. I still beat all the stock RXPs in my area with those speeds.
    Would I benefit more with a different pitch? I was at 68.7 mph at 7950 rpm with the 12/19.5 in 65 degree temp early in the year.

    modify your air intake and your rpm will come up with more speed
    give me a day or so and I will post some pics of the moded air systems
    we have come up with around here verry similar to snappers set up

    I already have a modded air intake (PPG style homemade) and everything for the stage one minus the wedge. I tried the riva style air intake with the same results. The air temp just kills my numbers this time of year.

    check out snappers web page that is how mine is set up no heat fade and I get cooler air in the engine I also wraped the intake pipe the keep heat out

    Im still going to get heat fade even with the whole filter system on the outside of the ski also with over 110 air temp compared to 65 air temp. You will need a AM IC or a injected alcohol system to avoid heat fade.

    Going with the 18 or 18.5 pitch will bring your RPM's up.

    Will that increase top end also?
