This new transmission manufactured by Velvet Drive incorporates and expands upon many of the innovations BAM pioneered.
The all new cast aluminum housing is an inch longer than the current Cyborg and incorporates the dry-sump style reservoir that BAM first developed. The additional length allowed Velvet Drive to add 5 more friction plates to the forward clutch drum. The rated torque of the resulting 16 disk clutch pack is 2,500 foot pounds, enough to handle today’s engines that exceed the capacity of our existing Cyborg Drysump. This brute is standard equipment on the new Mercury 1350 turbocharged engines.
Until now the increased length of this transmission has prevented it from being a direct replacement for current plug-in set-ups. To solve this problem BAM Marine is now manufacturing its own tail shaft assembly to allow retrofit to these close-coupled installations without moving engines.

BAM is now keeping these transmissions in-stock, ready to ship.
