read the article, thank you BTW..always a good read...
BUT..I disagree with Peter... He's using the wrong drives. Those #6's will not hold up for any long period of time. A good alternative would be ASD-8's but the proper set up would be with the10's.

torque is torque..the Skater hull will not save the drive..hence Merc's new drive for the new turbo engines..

Yeah, what does Pete know, he's only been doing this for 37 years.

Same reason no one can believe beefed up bravos live so well on many skaters with certain power.

I'm with Peter on this one. No reason to HAVE to go with shaft drives yet. Big heavy vee sure shaft drives all the way, different animal here.

You say this like a Surface Drive is a negative thing?

I'll be more interested to see if the engines can outlive the drives, or a single tank of fuel for that matter.
