Default Konrad 540 HP

Been looking but can't find any Konrad 450s or the 540 hp used any place. Are there just not many out there? I want keep my transmissions but would like a better driver than a TRS.

People who buy konrad rarely part with them. They are committed long term to their TRS boat and are ok with the performance they get from the boat. Not looking for every mph they can squeeze out of it. I guess the fact they all keep them is good advertising. What about the guy building shorty bravo lowers for TRS uppers? SlowRyd.

only fix was a reverse rotating motor. will pass on that lol. may just have to save up for new ones. I am ok with the performance and committed to the boat for sure. also like the smoothness with the trans.

And I am not sure that would work. The trans is obviously fine with it, but has anybody ever run a TRS upper backward? And TRS has an oil pump. Don't know, yet how it works or where it is, but I betcha it has to turn the correct way.
