Default Be Careful

It will gernade the first day you use it and NXT trans cost more than Hubers. Take the time to put regular trans in boat and don't use the NXT. The gimbal is also not rated for that HP.

Sounds like you have been there and done that

There are people on OSO saying NXT rated at around 1000 hp

I know you race a lot of boats and use all the good stuff, but with that being said we are poker run pleasure craft people that can only step up once every 3 to 5 years

With the rite driver and no airing the props out the NXT should handler around 800 to 900 HP, and I have talked to several people who have done that

What is you opinion on this Please

Ran with 2 boats in the Jammin on the James poker run. One 42 with boosted 700's and a 38 with boosted 700's. The 42 lost a motor, the 38 lost a transmission. Dont know the particulars on either just heard it happend. I like my 38/700 boat just fine stock. If you want to go faster, a better route would be to sell you boat, and go with a cat. You can run modest reliable power, and run easily in the 120-130's. Dont get be wrong. I love my V, but with 1400 hp it runs 114 mph. My sons 28 Skater with 600 hp runs, 115 mph, with O/B motors with 350 hrs on them. Just a thought, good luck.

Thanks for the input. Is the hubber 1350 the trans that will match up to my gimbal? I know that gimbal is not rated for that much hp but like gnorthga said it is only for rec. use not racing just want that extra zip every now and then. Got any 42 in stock or now were one is with bigger power?

You just need to throw on some 8.3L Whipples. I see you are in UT I am in Draper.
