Default Merc 700 ?????

Can you get that motor with #6 drive or is it just the NXT?

Some boats are not handling exactly perfect with the NXT1 drive. Fountain is one of them. Hence, they are hanging a VI drive off of the NXT1 gimble in some cases.

It didnt work with the Nortech's either. They elected to go back to the flawless #6

At the 700 shootout at Parker ,AZ for Powerboat Magazine...the DCB cats and the Adrenaline V-30 both got very light from stern lift between 80 and 85 with the NXT....they got loose and messy but re-corrected past the 85 mark and settled back down.......Bob Teague was working tech with some ideas after testing the 700's for the shootout....... Merc is still working on the fix but the #6 for some boats is the way to go until then

I wonder what speed a 47 lighting would have with twin 700's and 6's?
