Not all Schiada speed ski boats run those. My Schiada runs a 300 Merc O/B.

A Casale V-Drive with the large gears for off-road is about $3000.I would then suggest you take it to Barry Singleton to get it set up correctly which costs another $500.Barry has a make shift dyno to run these V-Drives on so they are broke in and ready to race.

That ford truck is owned and built by Greg Holman of R.E.F. Or other wise know as the exhaust guy. He builds the exhausts on just about all the trophy trucks out there. And some buggies too.

That guy is no joke. Yesterday I watched him take a box full of loose parts and build a complete set of headers in less than 8 hours.
I hope one day I have an engine in my prerunner that needs his expertise


And yes, I just bumped an 8 year old thread in hopes that someone has some new pics of his F100. I know I've seen more, but I can only come up with a few

I ran into Andy Casale a couple of years ago, He at the time, was the owner
of Casale. Casale has been making marine V drives for forever.He described he
had done some development work on some of the well known trophy truck & truggys
(possibly Herbst)?... Anyway, I am sure he did some work developing gear boxes
for stadium superlites & other off-road race cars A few years back.

Answer to the HP/Reliability issue, i have seen drag boats with over 1000 hp running
through them.

I still see his card floating around my desk from time to time. If anyone needs his number,
I can easily dig it up.
