How many compressors are you running what kind and where are they mounted? ? I was thinkin of making a wall to cover up where you have your tank.

but i disagree ^ ^ ^

i want to drive as slammed as possible at all times with minimal rubbing. some roads are curvier, some roads are bumpier, i live down a gravel road with a sloped driveway, sometimes i have friends in the car, some friends are heavier than others

i use it a lot to fine tune my driving styles. i love to drive aggressively at times and then i have to raise it up about .5" to 1" if really aggressive my coils are set pretty stiff so i still get a pretty aggressive road feel back when driving hard.

i personally feel that the majority with "full" air do not ride slammed. to me this is sort of defeating the point of having a nice stance. the only time you will see it is when parked. i want to stance when driving, and when flying by other cars on a turn as well

i use my air a few times a day... but you will hardly catch me not slammed.

well i just want to ride slammed and then still be able to have other passengers and make it into certain businesses.

my last ls430 was pretty slammed at certain points in its tenure but since it was just me like 90% of the time i had it set for slammed for just me. then it sucked on the occasional weekend outing with friends in the car i had to drive all slow, and the jokes never ended when coworkers would ride with me to lunch once or twice a month. they would just laugh and joke the whole time about scraping or how i would have to avoid certain driveways and "well we obviously can't eat there cuz this car will never make it",, sorta made me want air, but sicne i love to drive hard at times i thought coils was the only way to go for this, so it seemed like air cups was the best and cheapest way to achieve this i am satisfied...

did 6 years in the air force and was in okinawa from 02-04 which is how i found out about this awesome place. just got back in june '12 as a DOD civilian and am loving it. i'm gonna try to go kayak fishing tomorrow morning if the weather is nice.

japan is nice but very expensive, and i saw the best vip car since i've been here yet driving home yesterday afternoon but the dudes car was like stock height,, maybe he was just aired up for some stupid reason

depending on your specific tastes and hobbies you may be a little bit jellymad if you check out this link here to my other little weekend time synch hobby.
