ANODIZED BALLISTIC GEAR BOX

Post by gatorfrog2 »

Well we but the bullet. Not the. BIG ONE/ "Oxbox" but ordered a BALISTIC ANODIZED BLACK 2.68-1 from PTR34. Box is in transit. Due to a little delay from anodizing shop. Can't wait. Bolting up to a new WHITES PERFORMANCE 383 STROKER 600HP :) spinning a 3-blade 80" R. ...on a 13ft ALUMITECH. Should be a nice boat. Will post pics as soon as build commences. Thanks AGIAN Terry. Good guy if your looking to upgrade to a new gearbox give him a shout. :salute:

Ya it's gonna be tough deciding which boat to take. :scratch:

BEST of both worlds:)...litl 4Banger an a BEAST.!!!!!.... :rebel: :old_glory: :florida: Photo above is the hull. Git from a nice guy up on St. John's. Long story short took boat for test run. Ran AWESOME!!...no hop ran free an cornered like a champ. Ran hill great. So took back to nearest oak tree an unnrigged. Took home. Stripped poly. Welded alum. Holes. Installed new 3/8 grey from TSEOK. Now we have. Hull , motor ,headers, gearbox, gas tank, rudders, control panel, headers etc etc. Waiting on prop an everything else. Ugh. Fabricator should be ready in a month. Should give enough time to get odds an ends. Maybe ready for last weekend of hunting season. Or New Years HOWL AT DA MOON :bounce:

Ya he wanted a new 13 or 14x8. But he's said he'd prolly be kicking himself going down them tight trails while bumping the sides. :banghead: He didn't really want to give it up. We pretty much had to remove his whole rigging etc an force him the cash an grab title. I guess he had a lot of good memories in that boat:) told him when we get it finished we'd come up a ride together. Do you know if he got his boat finished?

Terry (PTR34) must be having a good week. I just ordered the 2.7 Ballistic box from him and he threw in a new set of NGR blades for it. This is my first car motor boat. It is a 383 with 425 HP. It had a 2.1 Precision box and a new 78x46 Sensenich wood prop. The box was too loud for me. I'm getting the milled box and a new JW wheel flexplate.
