Like buying a set of # 6's. The pic he posted is of a 46 Skater race boat. The boat was originally equipped with Arnesons. Only changed due to steering issues.

Very nice to change X-dimension with a flick of a switch.

Max Machine Worx Kevlar Top Gun with 850+ per side , blew starboard twice this summer, at 45 hrs then at 9 hrs. and that was being very very careful with the sticks.
We are taking some boost out next summer.
I run #6 dry sumps on my Cat with 850s no issues in 120hrs!
I have come to the conclusion in speaking with several friends with similar rigs that beefed up Bravos are only good for 700 hp or so , and that they all use similar components. Good Luck!

IMCO Exterem SC' here... blew two uppers this year (both port and stbd drive). First was at 20 hrs, second at 25-30 hrs, 720 hp in a 10,500lb boat running conservatively.

I'd go with the MaxMachine or Bmax if you wanted a bravo type drive. Problem is, all of them, except for the BMax upper use the merc gears.

Other than the top cap, the XR is just as good as any other drive with the exception of the shafting, if you get XR's have them set up and get an aftermarket top cap to tie it all togeher.

Bigger is better when it comes to torque. I learned my lesson the hardway and I don't have as much power as some of the others who have posted here.

Great package but #6s will still carry a higher resale value
on your investment.Maybe not enough press going around about scs.Every time they invent something new the rules change in racing so no one can race it.I think the mercury
gods control the market.
