Have not made any plans for next year yet. If I am there the only time I will keep up with you is when we are sitting at the docks!

Yep they do, it's sitting in a buddy's shop awaiting paint. 101mph, but the cabin is stripped except a few benches. Not even a closet to put fenders, etc. in. Those drives are really cool looking in person, they fit the tall profile of the outlaw series well.

I'd like to see pricing on the NXT's. Without a transmission (weight) and the weight of the drive (Mini-#6), it could be a nice alternative for a Bravo conversion!

I have not ridden in one with the 700/NXT package but my Father was talking to TS and he said that setup in the 36 Supercat ran really well.

There are alternatives now. They are called Imco 4x4s, Imco 1000's and Konrads. They all use transmissions as that is a weak link in the Bravo style drive. The NX1 requires a transmission as well. I have a set of 4x4s for sale (take-offs).

The Donzi 38ZR runs fantastic with the 700s with NXT Drives we have not had any issues and ran 2 Poker Runs with her in Sarasota and Key West we had her at 106MPH in Sarasota and was running a mild 96mph in Key West, this was hull number one with the 700s and I have number 4 in stock. the boat just runs great with the 700 package.

For now it's only available as a complete package w/ the 700.
The NXT does have a transmission but not a typical Borg Warner trans. It's more like a separate cone clutch housed within the gimbal. The transom assy has a cutout similar to the 6. It's possible but would not be an easy Bravo conversion as the transom would have to be re-glassed and more than likely the X would have to be raised.
