They will handle 750 hp without a problem but you will lose a couple mph with them.

Also, you can do a search on B-Max and you should find a few threads/discussions with pros and cons about their drive.

The only 'con' is the lower gear set isn't any larger than a standard bravo XR drive. So if your blowing lowers, keep this in mind.

Just my 2 cents.
