    Sweptback Outdrive

    Anyone running a "sweptback" outdrive? They may only be available (or not anymore) in the XR version. Just wondering what the differences were between that and the standard Bravo series drive. Is there any performance difference? Does the sweptback actually put the torpedo further behind the transom (like a mini extension box) or is it just styling?

    It's styling there is no performance from it...Mercury just changed to the sweptback styling...That is the current drive offered in all Bravo drives.
