An XR / Imco lower in that boat should be fine depending on how you drive it. It's not a big boat or a heavy boat, probably don't want to hang to much weight out the back.

so basicly the bravos weak point is in the upper and if i upgrade the upper to an xr would be the cheapest solution obviously not the best but should work if i dont abuse it? also what do you think my gains would be with a nose cone i just have the standard B1 lower wonder what my gains could be. i think i should get a sportsmaster xr from what you guys are saying and don't abuse it.

An XR will not last like a Bmax. Call John at the Bravo Shop.

This is what 700hp does to an Xr Upper.

3 times in a year and a half. (Makes an IMCO look cheap at that rate.)

An SCX will cost you about 13K, this discussion came up a few months back... thats alot of money... no guarantee it won't break, at some point...

Let's just say buying the IMCO's this year was cheaper than not buying them two years ago!
