The steerable outdrive is not the best for sharp turns. I'd suggest living with it till the upgrade, then install a flex cable with strut and a separate in-line or offset rudder and possibly turn fins and trim tabs. Andrew, on www.fastelectrics.com should be able to supply all your needs (if that's Sydney, Oz)
Whoops! I think the Aquajet already has solid propshaft and separate rudder

if it has a rudder and prop assembly, how about making the rudder deeper, or adjusting its positioning on the servo arm, to give a greater throw.

Anything much over 30 either way tends to act as a brake more than a rudder
