Default SCX Problems??

I am thinking about trading in my IMCO SC upper for an SCX upper in anticipation of an upgrade in power to about 875 horsepower in my 28' Nordic Heat.

Does anyone have any experience, or has had, or seen proplems, with an SCX?

Thanks in advance,

Chris

I'll let ya know Chris, I am going to do one over the winter, I will sell you a MMW all Billet drive, it would be sweet with the power you will be running and it is a direct swap, no helmet change, and half the price of the new SCX, remember just had the drive completly rebuilt, all new upper, and all lower gone through...5,000 worth Someone will be getting a great drive, and if it would handle the HP I would never get rid of it, but with me having the motor gone through this winter, and bumped up, I am going to give the SCX a try...

Through away that five blade !She's a drive breaker. deep drive needs the slip. Glen did good with the Bmax this year,other then the glitch in Tenn. normal is 1 a year. He went to Labed 30 but is also 1.36. He just turns a few more RPM's.whats 7200 every now and then !! I just had a custom XZ built thats cryoed and REM polished. 4mph between the XR to the XZ. But the XR was a stocker.

X2 People say slip bad...I love slip and so does my boat, don't be hung up on the numbers get a good supply of 4 blade Bravos and see what the boat likes, or give Brett a call @ BBlades, he just did a prop for Steve and I, did an amazing job, plus he can point you in the right direction...

I am not sure if the SC mid section will work with the SCX upper, give Dave a call, they are very helpful and will shoot you straight. It would be sweet if they did, maybe it is already in the works

The head engineer at IMCO also said this will not work.
