% of people want a big bad motor, but don't want to add a trans/converter/cooling system/driveshaft, rear end, suspension, and chassis to handle it.

Horsepower costs money. How much you got ?

Sorry to hear that! I was hoping it was just a snapped shaft (one of three) but not the case here. Sorry, hang in there!

This much power you are basically stuck with a handful of options. Imco SCX upper, Arneson Conversion, or converting to a mercury surface drive (6 drive) to name the most mentioned.

Or you take option B. Rebuild another Bravo drive (imco, teague, max worx etc) and know that the drive is the weak link.

Majority of people take option B due to price. I can buy a lot more of used and new old stock drives and parts for bravo's compared to the previously mentioned choices for my dollar.

I have a nice BMax drive that would work for you.

As a warlock owner the drives I had best luck with, with big power were bravo x diesel drives.
