What everyone is doing, is putting a nitrogen bottle in place of the compressor. The nitrogen feeds into the air tank and gives you a much quicker responce because of the pressure in the bottle. Instead of have a compressor fill your tank, you just change out the nitrogen tank when it is empty. This is good for shows but not economical on the street, unless you have a hook up for nitrogen. Hope this helps:thumbup:

I run nitrogen for a daily driver.... I run at 100 psi daily and then for fun or shows i can put it up to 250psi....There are two places aroud here to get nitrogen. One is $17 and the other is $18 and the tanks are 2500-2200 fresh. Generally with normal driving i can last 2 to 21/2 weeks depending how much fooling around I do. Plus a bonus is no condensation in the lines which is good since I drive it daily in freezing temperatures. Also the speed as mentioned above. :p

What size Nitrogen bottle is that? I was thinking of going to a bottle. My thought was to get a scuba bottle and just have them fill it with compressed air. I think they run those up to about the same pressure and it would be a smaller bottle to try to fit under my bed or something. I wonder how long it would last then and how much it would cost to fill and purchase. I have a compressor now but It gets kind of annoying and I want more speed and pressure but I don't want to spend more than another compressor would cost me, and I don't want an engine driven compressor robbing power, any thoughs?
Sorry to whore the thread!
