jet drive nozzles

Hi All,

Does anyone know if i can upgrade my Hamilton colorado explorer 2 stage jet drive to a nozzle steering system. It currently has steering gates and i feel the nozzle would be just much more fun!

Anyone know any uk retro suppliers. Its a fairly old drive.

thanks

Looks like either a Hamilton Jet Colorado Explorer or 752. The gate steering on both of these was dismal, and only got marginally better with a T3 nozzle.

There are a number of 'proper' steering nozzles available out of NZ, if you are handy with a drill you should be able to fit yourself.
