    Nozzle

    I have a 2008 RXTX has stage 1 riva, Nozzle, intake mod, riva waterbox, Nopas, Riva sponsons, catch can etc..

    Does the nozzle really make a big difference? My friend just had a stage 1 done with no nozzle.. His turns so much better than mine.. turns tigher, has better launch, Mine is faster. . but not much.. Top speed ever was 74.3 real cold day no fuel/. but normal top speed around 72.3 I have 82mm ring in now..

    Does the larger opening make it turn tigher?

    The smaller the nozzle, the narrower jet of water you have coming out the back. It gives you a higher top speed, but at the sacrifice of holeshot (or launch). I could see how it could slightly affect steering simply because the nozzle is pushing a narrower jet, but I can't say with any certainty.
