    Looking forward to hearing about your slalom experience with the thrust vectors. Do you have them so that they stay down at higher speeds or are they only for low speed turning?

    Will spinning out with these installed damage them?
    It seems like when you slide out out sideways there would be a lot of stress on them.

    I haven't had any issues with mine, but if you did break one, @JetBoatPilot would cover it under warranty.

    I received my thrust vector and had to immediately remove do to almost impossible steering at any speed other than idle I talked to Will from jetboat pilot and my reverse gate is not adjusted properly causing binding. Does anyone have pics or info on how to adjust the reverse gate I have to manually push mine up for it to lock in the forward position. The first pic is how it is adjusted without touching it. The second is me pushing it by hand to the locked position and the other two photos show the metal wear and scraping of the thrust vector. IMG_0770.JPG IMG_0775.JPG IMG_0776.JPG IMG_0778.JPG

    I have them on my 210 Challenger. The manual gate adjuster is on the left hand side, there should be a cotter pin holding the adjuster block in it's groove. Remove the cotter pin, lift the adjuster block out of the groove, the rod is threaded and you can adjust by spinning on / off.

    I think some of the new boats have an electronic adjust for neutral, not sure if there is also the manual adjust as well.

    @Kyle Mekulik Can you please post your pictures? I got mine recently and they worked fine but with more reversing, they came off and lost the top bracket. Jetboat pilot have been great and they are sending a modified part to see if that solves the problem. Looks like others have similar issue so they are suspending sales for Glastron part until issue is resolved. It looks like the cross member is hitting the gate when reversing for some reason. thurst vectors.jpg
