I run 32 maximus's, I also own a set of 32 bravo's
My propshafts are 3" below the bottom of the boat,
it has Stellings boxes.
Cruise speed, at 3500 rpms the max's run 55 mph, at 3800 rpms the the bravo's run 52 mph.
The fastest I've had the max's was 94 @ 5500 on the perfect
day, ( normal average is 88-92 )the best I had the bravo's run was 89 @ 5800 ( rev limiter)
The bravo's just dont work that well on my boat.
And yes, I've broken my share of drives...but I've witnessed
the same junk XR upper gearsets break behind 500's and
