About 12 years ago Ted McIntyre from MTT developed
a braking system to bolt to the output of the t53 then attached
a scs crashbox. This is the same technology used by most today.

This will keep you busy

The dingy driver was glad Fusco wacked the throttles so he could get out of the tunnel

If this boat does not run FNR gearboxes how does he manage t get counter rotation at the props?
I know the T58 has a reduction box which reduces the output shaft speed to around 6000 rpm but I am curious to how this thing is rigged.
