Do the lateral thrusters work without the thrust vectors?
Yes they work with or without the TV's. Lateral Thruster is probably the coolest thing we've ever invented...in my humble opinion.

Is there a link to these products? I have a SeaDoo Utopia with twin jets, haven't yet had it in the water, but have heard that the twins respond to steering better. Thoughts?

Thanks,
Jonas
The group buy is for Thrust Vector products listed on our website with the exception of the Thrust Vector Wake.

From what I can see the products on that link are all for Yamahas. Earlier in the thread it says BRP will included also. Is there any info on twin SeaDoo applications?
We can sell Thrust Vectors to SeaDoo and other BRP powered jet boats from 2005-2019.

Fairly certain this question was indirectly answered already but I have to ask... would this group buy include the thrust vector for Glastron jets? I’ve been hitting refresh on Jetboatpilot.com for weeks and it still says sold out. :(

We had too many issues with Thrust Vector for Glastron models so we stopped selling them. Sorry.

I am new to jet boating and will be picking up my 2019 Yamaha 242x Friday. I have learned I need these thrust vectors to get the feel I am used to with an I/O when docking. I just learned about the bad jet spray for tubing and am some what feeling buyers remorse before I even have the boat because I know my wife and kids won't like the spray in their face when tubing.

Which thrust vector product do I need to both help steering and knock down the jet spray so I can use all my same ropes for tubing? I would like to jump in on this deal if one of these products helps. Does the thrust vector wake do the same?

Previous boat was a 04 chaparral 274 Sunesta.

Unfortunately the product you need is the Thrust Vector Wake, which is not included in the group buy this year. We can change your order and if I'm not mistaken we'll have inventory to ship later this week.

There wont be a sale on Thrust Vector Wake for some time. I'm sorry but we're having difficulty keeping up at regular price. There's even a potential price increase coming before year's end.

In my opinion, there isn’t enough spray on the tube with that boat to acknowledge. (I have the same)

My kids and wife complained about our ‘11 SX210. But, those older models sit at least 6” higher out of the water than current boats... which created more spray.

I was in on the preorder for the Wake edition that was mentioned, but the wife finally said it wasn’t necessary before we installed. We spent a lot of time tubing with our kids and niece/nephew that are newbies over the last couple weeks. Didn’t hear one complaint from any of them.

Not sure, I'll update everyone next week.
Any update yet on where the discount is? I'm interested but broke ! New house and needing a shop to winter the boat here in Idaho... That is unless I can talk the wife into selling and buying a newer boat this winter! #FatChance #Dreamer

I'm waiting to know also. I can't afford full price or only 10% of this month.
Already bought the vectors at full price!

It's my understanding that the 2019 bucket design doesn't need the lateral thrusters, is that correct? Do the Thrust Vectors interfere with the new bucket design in any way?

Correct.

No, thrust Vectors still work on ‘19.
