Thanks for the explanation. I dont prefer hydros, not at all, I just always thought hydros were more powerfull and was surprised to see that air bags can make a car jump that high. I just always though air-ride was being used for lowering and raising and not making your car hop up and down in the front or lift off like you see all the kids doing in their 80's pimpmobilesWeimer said:Ever have 400 psi go through a 1" I/D airline? I would say that it would probably knock you on your back if it hit you.
Think about this....Why do people build drag cars? I mean honestly who needs a car that goes 180mph? Why would someone spend money on that type of car...the speed limit is only 65mph.Its like comparing a drag car to a show car.
NO...the video isn't photchopped. The truck has no interior, motor or tranny. I can provide more videos. I have one of a full interior driver Suburban that launchs about 3'-4' off the ground. This perticular truck is running nitrogen. You can do the same with air but it takes a little more effort.
The setup on my truck is built for some serious playtime...I am only running 3/8 valves and a front/back setup. I have the extra parts to run 1/2" fill valves and 3/8" dump valves, with front/back/side to side. I don't see a need for it. I don't really don't need the ability to hop my truck 1' off the ground.
Like I said, nobody HAS to build something like this....they just want to. I personally don't see a NEED to build a 800hp motor but if I decide one day that I would like to....then I will.
On the subject of air surpassing hydros....that is an old time argument, such as ford or chevy. I personally like the low maintaince and installation ease of air, but some people like the hydros.

Misery? Like that truck was ever destined for some great mission? LOL!!! Like I said before...what is the point of building any type of car for anything other than basic transportation? For enjoyment right? Thats why I am building mine! I suppose that I am just 'wasting' my money also? I mean I can't haul anything, layed out the doors are only 1/4" off the ground, and it will be a gas hog....and when I am done the doors won't even open right, they'll open backwards I am seriously considering building an "air-dancer" after I get the wifes Jag done. Maybe I should just "invest" my hotrod money into something like an ultra rare mid 80' G-Body.87442lover said:I cant bare to watch anymore! Please! Put that truck out of it's misery!!!
What is the point of doing this? Just a huge waste of money. Maybe they should be using that money for better things like giving it too me! :thumbup:
