They shift just like a transmission, with the motor running??

That's what TNT is installing on my 46 Skater. I like to run hard and have smoked 6ea BAM 1450 dry sumps in the last 40 hours or so of running the boat. They usually smoke in 3 to 4s with drives below neutral running hard but safe,much slower than racing. Trannies are great but apparently there is a limit on what they can take.

Go by TNT Monday and tell Johnny, Mike or Gary that you would like to see FREEDOM US1 ( Jim Lees boat). Johnny is going to test the boat Monday and it will be on the road Tuesday. Let me know how it looks. If its OK with Johnny its OK with me if you go on the test run and see how they work. At that point you can ask him how much they cost and we'll both know. Hardware only costs around 20000.00

When we start trimming iit out and getting into the 140's the boat tends to hook to the right and the steering gets a little loose. We think the spacers will help and we just traded out 17" props for 16.5" diameter.
Are you turning in or out. Sounds like your turning out.

yes just like a drysump bam they take a little getting use to there is a slight delay after you move the handle but once you get it you will never go back... john pompi at marine performance did the nortech he's in port orange south of daytona the hardware was less than $20,000... there is only one safe way to go in a big hp cat and this is it good luck

I'm glad you like your set up. Trannies were my weak lenk, I look forward to running the boat with out smoking trannies. Your right, they are less than 20000.00 but thats the ball park once its all said and done.
