    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    Tom , would appear that the nozzle is "fixed" and that the "flaps" on the sides are movable deflectors to effect directional change of exit flow and steering versus a traditional steerable nozzle (hard to see detail in the small picture) also looks like the rideplate is cable adjustable

    Kinda like the way the old Hamilton pumps were ,as far as the steering goes.


    Chrysler had something similar


    Lot's of weird shit back then.

    Cool pix old rigger! I guess as long as its redirected itll work. The pic i put up is from a texas tunnel for sale that runs 118, which is why i found his nozzle interesting. its on a berk pump. I remember ron and dillon running a adjustable rideplate on their old dragstar.

    Yeah, Harry had an adjustable grate on his scrap shelf at Advantage too that didn't work as planned, actually I think after all that engineering it wasn't really worth the effort?
    Lots of cool stuff.

    What to hell is the small nozzle for. Would like to see th geometry also of how they are adjusting the ride plate with a 33 cable.

    Ill try and hunt down a link to the sale ad. I dont remember seeing a sideview pic of it. Wonder how well it steers above 115 with that thing, he has got a pretty serious bbf in it.

    I remember seeing it on drag boat city. Thought to myself. This guys on crack. Never seen it at a sanctioned race so all performance numbers are all guesses as far as i am concerned. Just my 2 cents .

    Looks like he shuts the little nozzle off for more thrust after he is up and going. interesting.

    from his CL ad it sez,

    Dual nozzle shift on the fly and gives it an extra 400 extra lbs thrust.
