The Crush isnt tweaked... yet. Contemplating the 450 upgrade, but its currently a bone stock 409. If we were to put equivalent sized props on them, the holeshot comparison would be interesting, as both boats run the same 1.26:1 reduction in the tranny. Top end probably wont be all that close, as the 196 with the gate up is a pretty fast hull... but we'll see!

No idea what MC ships as the standard prop on that package. I would have *guessed* it to be in the 13x15 range, but they certify some much smaller ones according to the 2013 Approved Towboats list. Those 13x12 and 13x14.5 wheels would have the boat screaming at skiing speeds, so Im guessing theyre not installed on typical (non-tournament) boats.
