What drives are those, I haven't seen anything like them.
If you are refering to Jim's 30, thay are X-Power Drives

From the web site:
Direct replacement for stock bravo style outdrives. Bolts directly onto stock Bravo style gimbles with no modifications necessary.

We have completed extensive development and testing on a totally dry-sump drive. The parasitic losses are so low it's confidential.

Many months were invested in CFD (computational fluid dynamics) modeling to find the lowest drag and fastest combination. The complete lower unit/skeg assembly was modeled for optimum hydrodynamic efficiency and minimum drag. Up to 37% less drag than the competition.

Designed & Engineered by X Power Drive & F-1/Indy Car Manufacturing & Engineering company. read more

Bolts directly on to a stock bravo or like gimble
Tested to 1535 HP with zero failures
Totally dry-sump drive. Three stage dry-sump pump
Integrated baffled oil tank under back cover. Totally self contained system no modifications necessary
Ultra low parasitic frictional losses. Best in the industry
Replaceable stainless skeg with optional profiles
Carbon fiber/autoclaved cavitation plate, and back cover, with integrated naca duct for aeration tube
Up to 37% less drag
Integrated oil filtration system
