Default How Fast Is Your Boat With A Xr Drive?

Anyone know how fast you can run an XR drive before cavitation or excessive drag comes into play? I know it's good to 90's by experience. I also ran a nose cone in 100's.
Looking for stock lower info.

That will work for me. My guess is as long as it's not surfacing too high? If so, then go to a Speedy or Imco lower?
