39 mti is 37 and change.... there wasn't a 525 mti at the shootout... the show special was a 700 merc mti which didn't make a pass. so i am not quite sure what you are talking about...???

mti owns the supercat lite (and supercat) kilo records by the way...

Have any of you guys who are bashing a bravo boat actually owned one? I have a 36 nor-tech w/525 and XR's, other then a faulty cone clutch, which was replaced under warranty, I have had no issues. Mine runs 104. Try finding an 04 skater that does that for 260. Nor-tech is not a skater, thats why they are cheaper, but it is still a great boat, and the cabin is very useful. If you want a cabin get a nor-tech, if you want a little more speed, get the skater. Dont worry about the XR's.

I don't think MTI has built any 525 bravo boats, but I have ran a 39 with 575's and bravos a couple of yrs back and it ran 125 first time off the trailer. My understanding is that there is minimal different in speed between a 575 and 525 in a real application. So I am pretty sure a 525 bravo mti would run at least 125. This was a pure pleasure version that I drove by the way, with no tweaking or prop swaping.
Anyway, I personally wouldn't buy any of the boats mentioned without #6's, you will get your money back and more plus have a marketable boat.

Skater or MTI with sixes only. First choice would be MTI.
