Another important question to consider is regular maintianence. These drives are also expensive to maintain. On the bright side, if maintained correctly, these drives are bulletproof.

Call Colabella performance in St Cloud. Its 407 area code. He is the man when it comes to rebuilding ANY drive. TNT in Miami also has a first class drive shop. If the #6 is not boken they take a huge amount of power to break. They are pretty in destuctable.

The #6 drive should be looked at every 125 hrs. Call Mercury

Call Craig Colabella, he was the 6 guy at Lake X and now on his own. When it comes to #6 he is the best.

Guys don't FIX number sixes. They just buy NEW ones and send the old ones to the scrap yard.

I have a scrap yard. Do you want my address??
