It uses the 26 spline prop as found on the #6, arenson, etc. The props on the drives at the show are manufactured by us.

I would imagine the power loss is minimal since it's dry sumped. The transmission power loss is 3 horsepower.
They say the drive can handle the power the Ilmor motors put out.

The drive looks as if it could handle as much as a #6 could. It's not a heavy duty Bravo drive or an NXT drive. It looks like it would be able to handle anything Ilmor manufactures, or plans to manufacture, in the future. The gears inside are about the same size as those in a #6.

It's an impressive piece with over 3 years in the making. Ilmor really did thier homework.

I always said competition is a good thing, both on and off the track!

Will be interesting to see some pricing...

Hope they make a nice package deal, I am not saying names but I always felt, to become a "big" player in this market, you need to either beat Merc on price or Beat them on value.

Problem is when products try to go head to head, going to loose, merc has the dealer network and market share.

So GO ILMOR, lets see some kick azz numbers.

I was very impressed with the drive, the whole package, and the Ilmor personnel at the show. I am the type of person that asks all of the annoying questions that most reps at the shows tell me to consult the webpage or email someone at the company but the Ilmor rep I talked to answered all of my questions fully with detail and was very nice and professional. Very impressed. So far it has been a great show and I'm only half way done with the convention center. I'll try to remember my camera tomorrow.

Great points and totally correct-

Go to any lake in any town- you'll find find a mercury sign somewhere near the water.

Although of all the guys that can give the merc boys and brunswick a run for their money- it's Roger Penske he plays hardball and he knows a thing or two about distribution as well.
