Busting drives with 500s. I know tons of people with 500 to 750s with stock bravos and do not brake them. I have 210hrs on a pair and I ran 16 big poker runs in big water. Its all in the throttle.

We've got customers with custom B-Max's with 1000 HP running through them for over a year without issue. I'd be happy to build some for you.

Thumbs up

I have run mine for two years now, 572 big block with twin turbos. I am running 17# boost with race gas for special occassions, thats about 1600 hp. Bravo with all the trick **** would last about 45 min to 4 hours. Dean has built a great drive!

I am running B-max's on a 43' NORTECH V(about 14,000#) with twin 730hp motors with 740 ft-lb of torque. This is probably the most extreme B-Max application at about 7,000 lb/drive. I had some problems last year with drive shaft failures but Dean and NORTECH took care of them and all the drives now have the new beefed up drive shafts. I have about 60hr on the drives w/ the new shafts and have had no problems. A good portion of those hours have been during Poker Runs with hard running with 6 to people on board!

500 efi's run the Bravo's XR's - Big Power run the B-Max. I put 120 hours on the Bravo's - 13,000 Cigarette - rebuilt them before The Worlds , I'm hoping for another 120 hours. BH

Hey Jammin,

How are you? I've not seen you since the AC Poker run. Hope you had a great summer. I'm going to the NJPPC Dinner party in February, are you going? While I'm there, I'll go to the boat show. Anyway, talk to you soon... Say hello to Jim Natoli for me

Call me when you have a moment 516 459-5730
