R7 380 vs 430

Post by Ballvice » Sun May 07, 2017 11:16 pm

Does anyone have the 430 or driven the 430 vs the 380 on performance on the R7?

I'm closing in on one this week and there are a couple of 2016 hold overs with the 430 and I'm curious if it's worth looking at before I pull the trigger?

I just took delivery on R7 surf. Had 350hp in R5. Called cobalt and they said difference is about 2-3 mph top end speed. Not much diff on torque. If you call cobalt, they will give you their testing results. ‭(800) 468-5764‬

Hey Ballvice, Did you pull the trigger on the R7?
I had the same choice but was able to get a better deal on the 380.
I'm new to this site so was curious /
