Thread: Another Idea....

If you extended the venturi of the RXT would it help steering. I was thinking of using a ring the same size as the venturi and yes jb welding it to give the venturi an extra inch. I'm looking at helping steering within the 20-30mph range.
I'm not sure if the JB Weld will hold but if it helps steering I wouldn't mind making it permanent.

Did you know JB Weld was made in Sulpher Springs, TX? THat's about an hour and a half from me, which would be 3-4 hours from Memphis. You should ask to take a tour of the plant. I think you fund one of the esec's payroll.

Your crazy, but I bet it would help as this is what my 96xp R&D nozzle did. They were 2-3 inches longer.

is that the venturi nozzle being longer.... or the steering nozzle being longer?

A longer steering nozzle? You mean like this?
WOW, you can actually buy one already done up without the cheezy JB weld messing your ski's looks up

I'd buy it if I knew it worked for the RXT.
I've asked twice but no answer.
Shibby, I mean the steering venturi.
I bet I could get a ring with the same ID as the OD of the tip of the steering venturi. Then extend it until I like the feel.
I like the R&D one but I'm not sure if it would be compatible with the RXT being it would need the bushing slot. Maybe the R&D nozzle would just make it straight like with the bushing flipped.

it'll work.... it's on my list of things to buy one of these days. valves and a carbon fiber seat are ahead of the steering nozzle tho
forget the auto-drop trim nozzle contraption. we have 3-seaters, not closed course racing RXPs... i want the steering nozzle, not that auto-trim thing
