Hey @JetBoatPilot received thrusters and vectors. Thanks for the quick shipping.

I have an install question hopefully someone can answer for me. I installed the port reverse trheuster and the mount bolt extends through the main pivot into the nozzle stream. Is that normal?
I believe it should be a couple threads that’s what I remember reading or hearing. That’s how mine is. You did put the bushing on?

How far into the stream is it extending? We use a 40 mm long bolt for that installation but there is a possibility that someone could have put a 50 mm long bolt in the packaging which means you have the wrong bolt. 10 mm is just shy of 1/2 inch.

Thanks @Weeb and @JetBoatPilot . I was missing the lock washer on the first one had about a quarter inch sticking up. Looks good now that I realized that.

@JetBoatPilot thanks for the group buy and the great service and fast shipping. Got everything installed today just in time for Labor Day weekend. Can’t wait to experience the difference.

Install went well. Took about and hour, but now that I’ve done it I could probably do it in half that time. Loading the spring was tough for the thrust vectors but I probably should have watched the install video. Is the spring stainless?

Still haven’t received a response to my email :(
These guys are legit and they answer the phone. Call to see what's going on. This price is too good to pass on.

Bought the thrust vectors couple weeks ago but have not yet installed them but just ordered the lateral thrusters! Hopefully we’ll get soon so I can install them at the same time!

I installed last weekend, and I am impressed by the amount of lateral control introduced by the LTEs.

Really nice!

And the bubbles shooting underwater to the side of the boat when using it look pretty cool!
