    Volvo DPX Drives

    Does anyone own a boat with a DPX that can comment on handling, setup, etc?

    I know they are a great drive but what about the boat manufacturers setup? Since there weren't too many produced did the manufactures do a good job with proper X-dimension, prop selection, etc?

    A friend of mine is looking at a Donzi Classic with the 385 DPX package and I am wondering how the boat handles? I know set-up right it should run on rails!

    Anyone out there have one?

    C_Spray should have the down low on the DPX set-up. PM him if he doesnt respond here.

    Cool, thanks. My main concern was Donzi mounting having to "find" the best X.
