    There have been motions and skaters with 250s on them. Go for the 300, same weight and 5 to 7 mph faster from what I have heard. The only advantage that I can see would be fuel accessibility for the 250s.

    I would love to go with the 300s. We mabe getting a great deal on a pair of 250xs. Trying to keep on a budget for now. The 300 will defiantly come later if a pair pops up. Looking to see what kind of performance guys are getting on the 250s. And set up they are running
    thanks again mike

    Make sure the limiters aren't the 5750 or your great deal will only be a good deal after you spend the addtl. money to have them flashed.

    Thanks for the heads up. I am defiantly putting all the prices together like wing plates and lowers and now flashing. You are right sometimes just spend the money up front. By the way. Do you know anyone or place to get a pair of imco tilt pins. Having a hard time locating any

    I believe the 250's have a 5 year warranty.

    If you need 250's with sportmasters, then you must get the 250xs. They have a 2 year warrantee. The 250 Proxs has a 5 year but does no come with a sportmaster. I have a customer with 250xs on his 25 Liberator. Best is about 102 mph.

    We where thinking running a pair of 250xs with bobs nose cones Kinda of a budget upgrade. Still need some wing plates and tilt pins Though.
    Way in if you think we are goin g the wrong direction. We can always change things around going forward

    You can use the bob's , but I'd start with fatshaft torquemasters. I can get you a new set of IMCO wingplates, tiltpins, and rams, and shipping for $3400-$3500. It will come with the hardware to attach rams to wingplates and pins.

    I would love the fat shafts. Just need a good deal on a pair. We just picked up the skater so we want to slowly build it up. Quick question do you know how much a set of tilt pins for imco cost. New or used.
