Although not listed, I am running a Bravo XR/IMCO -2 Lower with 700 ft/lbs in front of it.
Drive was assembled by Chris Martin at Sterndive Specialist.
I treat it nicely. No problems in two seasons (40 hours).

I can't believe the number of non bravo drives?

What kind of money are we talking for some of these non bravos?

Is it true the value of a rig decreases with anything other than a bravo?

Any other drives work with a bravo transom assembly?

How difficult to get parts for some others?

Looks like my bravo one's are sold. Looking to get into something to hand 700hp and a straight hull Tiger. Planned on Xr's.

Max Machine worx drive-944hp/962 ft lbs tq 5000 lb boat,something STILL breaks every 75 hours or so BUT it is a fact of life with hi tq. Ive broke parts in lower last couple of times so keep in mind a B-max lower uses the same style parts and will break just as easily too,Smitty

Want tough?? These SCS Sage #8 drives can handle 1500hp. Like an Arneson to the tenth. Drive has lift + - 4". And only weights 350 !! A # 6 drive weighs 520 lbs.
