I love mine! No problems. They run as smooth as the set of 525's we had in our previous 38 TG.

Sunsation has ran the 700's for some time now in the factory F4 and they love them. Reliable and low maintenance are a huge turn on for that size horsepower IMO. I am sure if you were to call the factory and speak to Joe or Wayne they would be more than happy to give you all the details. I know they are busy building but they will always take a time out to speak motors.

I put a little over 100 hours and the Wayne who bought my boat i believe put more than 40 hours on her.. not a problem to date.. I loved them.. great set up and would do them again......and Tracy for your set up a semi-stagged set up is best..2-3mph faster vs side by sides..

Are you thinking about converting or something new, Wrink?

We built several F-4’s with the 700’s and NXT drives, very nice packages and had no problems with any of them, and they all ran at least 100mph. The black and green factory boat has 230 hours with only a couple small issues, but never stopped us from running, pretty good looking motors too.
