I run Imco sc's behind 600hp blower motors. Only about 20 hours so far. May be about to build/buy new rig. Really considering#6's.

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.
I agree, wish we could see more Arneson's ,Weisman's ,sage's, and Konrads, all have trannies and all for different applications. It's unfortunate about the monopoly, from pricing to racing.

LostinBostin,
We have a customer that is putting in a 1400 HP turbine in one of our Y2K's and the customer told me, the Sage was around 20K. This is the article.
