Indy style Air jack System

Not sure if this is the right spot for this post, but here we go.

I would like to put some sort of air/hydraulic/hydrogen based jacking system on a project car I am working on. This is similar to what they use on Indy cars.

I found one or two companies but keep seeing different ones on different cars that I like better. Problem is I cant seem to contact the owner to find out what they used. Saw one on a 33 Alloway a florida guy is building.

Does anyone know any companies I can look at for a complete system?

Thanks,

Dave

Not sure of your height needs, but I know the company I buy my coilovers from makes & sells them. RadFlo is the name. I believe it's a South African company, but they can be found at the website that is logical (www.companyname.com). Contact is Glenn Classen @ (714) 965-7828. Hope this helps.

As always, I have no relation to this company other than as a satisfied customer.

If you are willing to do a bit of "engamaneering" the cylinders are available from a good hydraulics supplier..and yes they are air over hydraulic..we used nitrogen to operate those on the race cars..dunno of anyone myself that makes a "kit" for that application..the cylinders have a spring that retract them when the pressure is relieved and yup they are fast acting..

Dave,
Speedway motors www.speedwaymotors.com has an onboard air lift for dirt late models in their catalog. The "lightning racing air jack system."
The complete system costs $2k. It is limited to only 2,500 lb though.

I cursed $2K worth of dirty words trying to jack up a stinkin' 1979 Suburban with the factory jack not too long ago. Next time I win the Lotto, I'm gonna git me one.

Thanks...

I ordered a Speedway Catalog.

I found a couple of companies that have the air jack systems.

Genesis Technologies:
http://www.hrpworld.com/index.cfm?fo...ction=category

and

Howe Performance:
http://www.howeperformance.com/hydraulicjack.html

Not sure if either one of these is any good though.

The car should weigh less than 2500lbs when finished.

Dave
