that's more than I'am looking at turn key, No Discipline needs at least 125K in power to do it justice, I'am sure it's nicer and newer but 140k more ?

Have you ridden in No Dicipline recently? It does triple digits already. Why would it need $125k in power and to make it do what? I think the difference is in the engines he's got in it (repowered with Sterlings I thought) and the drives. I thought he has #5's on it. That's a big difference from XR's.

Then again, what do I know.........just a girl afterall

Best of luck with the new package! I would think anyone would be fortunate to have it.

5's are a good drive for sure. But they are kinda the oddball. It's just why go with 5's and not just go ahead and get 6's? The money isn't that different when your goin big. And the #6 is a far better drive obviously. Doesn't matter if your a girl or not if you have knowledge thats relevant to the discussion!

It is listed no power or drives witch means 0 mph, to get it to 100+ with twins it will need 1000hp+ and 6's that will cost 125+ I know 6's are a lot better than xr's but the higher the hp the more work the motors need. If it had power in it for 299 it would already be on my lift behind my house. If they changed what they had please give me the # but the last I saw that was the deal.

You seem to know more than most even if you are a girl.

I'am not worried about them with only 700 hp. I was just looking for more info on the 47 in general.

A different friend of mine just got back from test driving the new 42 GTX. He was going to buy "The Joker."

Yeah I know what you mean. I wish he would've gotten it. He has a 42 Fountain with staggered 1200 Cobra's he was going to trade. But he said the GTX only went 105, and they said it would do 118. His Fountain was faster so he kept it.
