    Post New NXT1 SSM Drive Enhances 700 SCi Versatility

    New NXT1 SSM Drive Enhances 700 SCi Versatility

    FOND DU LAC, Wis. ., Sept. 29, 2006 –Mercury Racing has expanded the versatility of the popular 700 SCi sterndrive engine package with the availability of the all-new NXT1 Super Speed Master (SSM) drive. The NXT1 SSM drive features a dry-sump Six drive coupled to the NXT1 transom plate and the dry-sump NXT1 transmission. The drive is designed for boats with natural bow lift using minimal trim. These select hulls, including stepped vee-bottoms and catamarans, require the drives to be mounted higher on the transom for maximum efficiency and optimal boat performance. The increased drive height or X-Dimension requires the use of hull mounted water pickups for engine cooling.

    The NXT1 SSM drive offers OEM boat builders and consumers the benefit of using the legendary dry-sump Six drive with the engine mounted in the same location as a Bravo drive set-up thanks to Mercury Racing’s exclusive NXT1 transmission design. The compact size of the transmission enables builders to install the engine in the same location (fore and aft) as a standard Bravo in close couple applications. The transmission design allows for use of a "driveline kit" for forward engine applications. The Bravo XR drive, combined with the Mercury Racing PCM control strategies, received high marks in customer satisfaction in regards to shifting. The Mercury Racing NXT1 transmission features a Bravo-like cone clutch mechanism – resulting in smooth shifting characteristics.

    Both the drive and transmission feature dry-sump lubrication for higher efficiency and reduced operating temperatures. The unique through-hull location of the compact transmission enables the transmission to be installed after the engine is first mounted. This “reverse install” feature is especially handy in boats with limited engine room space. Access to the transmission from the transom also allows the transmission to be removed and serviced without having to pull the complete engine. The removable transom assembly cowl, modeled after the Integrated Transom System (ITS), enables easier access and servicing to various transom components.

    Like the NXT1, The NXT1 SSM drive is only available as part of the 700 SCi engine package. Both close-couple and drive-line models are available with 1.35:1 or 1.50:1 gear ratio in both right-hand and left-hand rotation.
