This is a totally unfair statement, the drives are for totally different ranges both price wise and HP.

1) Konrad registered it first (as "ACE Outdrive")
2) Mercury was second (as "ACE Dry Sump")
3) You can buy the Konrad package now.
4) You can pay lots more for the Mercury package some time in 2007.

Looks like Mercury is losing on both fronts at the moment. It will get worse for them when final pricing comes out.

Unfair? It doesnt look finished, looks like they are still trying to figure it out.... It looks like a stellings box style system with external steering and lines everywhere.. Sorry, I expected better....

I thought the looks of the new merc drive was very nice and looked like a mini number six drive. The only thing that I noticed is that it can not possibly be faster though. Did you notice the very blunt nose on the drive? No bullet nose which I would think would be consideralby slower.
