We will have to see if they hold up or not.

If anyone can break that setup, Dan is the guy. He drives the snot outta that boat.

If I where to setup up a boat that is exactly what I would do!
(Crash boxes or transmission)(525’s and #6 drives)
All of the SCL and SV boats in OSS are this way. This setup is almost unbreakable and getting that much horse power and reliability on 87 pump gas you can’t go wrong!

Glass Dave, When I bought the boat it had crash boxes , for docking purposes went to Bam 1200's .I have lost about 10% power and added about 100 lbs to the rear of the boat. I am thinking about super chargers if I don't go that route I think I am going back to the crash boxes.

Dont wanna change the topic but why not get 525's on nxt's?
Its cheeper and i would think it is strong enough to handle almost anything with 525's on them
