Not a big fan of...dare I say it...Pink. At least this one will be rigged properly form the beginning.

Erics boat IS the blue one, only one pic of Erics boat. The pic of the staggard 525's IS from the red Dragon.

Of course you have to add the HP loss from a transmission to this as well, but I would say that it is safe to assume that a dry sump setup would eat up less than the 30 HP that a Bravo does. I heard that the Spiderman Skater actually picked up speed by swapping to #6's.
I believe that the ''X'' dimension is higher as well to allow them to be ''surfaced'' resulting in less drag than a bravo.
