Default anybody using weismann drives?

I am looking for real experiences from real users not catalogue or www. printed information.

any conclusion?
strong?
easy to maintain?
long-life?
are they like experimental drives or do lots of people use them?
any input about these drives would be perfect.

thnx

He dry sumped my # 6 speed master's drives, never had a problem with them, gained 10 MPH with them for $20,000.00 lets see thats $2000.00 per MPH, cheaper than $4000.00 per MPH in engines. Always buyer beware !!

increasing efficiency(sp) of what you have has proven to be more cost effective than overcoming the lack of it with horesepower.

bonus is that you can also adjust the vertical height and play with the effective x dimension,it's like having a outboard jack plate on your I/O
