This is from a release from the NJPPC:

New Bravo One XR Sport Master Drives
Fond du Lac, WI – The precise handling and performance characteristics of the legendary Mercury Racing Six drive is now available with the new Sport Master gearcase option on select Bravo One XR drives. The Bravo One XR Sport Master gearcase features CAD solid modeled CNC machined, satin-finished aluminum housing which is more consistent and reliable than nosecone kits added on to production Bravo One gearcase housings. The Bravo One XR Sport Master drive features a redesigned gearcase bolt-mounting flange for enhanced drive strength and durability.The new Bravo One XR Sport Master gearcase, designed for boats capable of reaching speeds in excess of 90 mph, provides superior hydrodynamics, enhanced by a longer torpedo which raises the blowout speed. The four-slot, low-water pickup provides the best compromise of engine cooling while reducing debris ingestion. Both the standard and short models feature a modified wedge skeg shape patterned after the race-proven Dry-Sump Six drive skeg. The new skeg design features a larger overall surface area, including an additional two inches in length when compared to a standard Bravo One XR skeg. Precision CNC machining the one-piece gearcase housing and skeg provides a skeg that is perfectly straight and symmetrical – for enhanced directional stability and improved handling at higher speeds. The strut on the “short” Bravo One XR Sport Master gearcase is two inches shorter than standard Bravo One XR Sport Master and production gearcases. The shorter strut reduces the crankshaft to propshaft centerlines by two inches, allowing the drive to be mounted at surface piercing heights, improving boat handling and overall performance in select applications. Both standard and short models feature a bolt-on splash plate over the propeller. The aluminum splash plate features a sacrificial anode for added corrosion protection. Available in standard length and short models, the new Bravo One XR Sport Master drives are available with select HP500 EFI, HP525 EFI and HP575 SCi engine packages. Drives sold with engine packages are available with a standard transom plate assembly or the new Integrated Transom System (I.T.S.) and 1.26:1 or 1.35:1 gear ratios in right-hand or left-hand rotation. Standard and short Bravo One XR Sport Master drives and gearcases are also available as accessories. Accessory drives are available for both standard transom plate and I.T.S. applications. Bravo One XR Sport Master drives feature the same race-derived, heavy-duty internal components as standard XR drives, including a one-piece billet aluminum bearing carrier and stainless steel propshaft.
