Renegade engine upgrade

Post by Jonty » Mon Aug 26, 2019 3:40 am

Hi all, I am building a lengthened renegade and want to know if I can install a heavier driveline than the 1000lbs specified in the plans, an increase in the weight allowance will allow a higher capacity engine....
I also want to install a 2 speed gearbox along with the v-drive and it is limiting my options.
What would be some of the considerations I need to be aware of?
Thanks in advance.
Liam

Good time to think about boat balance, trim and stability. Start with this from Glen-L:

And it would be great to know why you want a two speed transmission.
