x dimension is lowering the drives in relationship to the transom, that doesnt affect the drive height itself...

i may be wrong.

The X dim. is the normal stock mounting height of the drive. raising the x dim. raises the drive. Raising the drive means you don't have to trim as high to cavitate the prop for max speed. Also with a higher drive height your not wasting HP pushing the transom deeper into the water. The only possible problem with the higher drive height is loss of crusing speed due to prop slippage.
