Great job on the car, man. The engine bay alone is commendable.
thank you! No air compressors in this car though, the bottle runs the onboard airjack system.

where'd you get the wheel holders in the garage?

also the bottles for the air jack are they NOS bottles?
Send me a note on facebook, i'll track down the link to the wheel racks for you.

The bottle on the right side is for Nitrous. Nitrous Express is one my sponsors so it's there, but never been used.

The bottle on the left (among other things there) powers the airjacks. I get 4-5 lifts per fill on compressed nitrogen. It started life as an NX bottle but has been substantially modified to work for this system.

Yep, that one is for the airjacks.

A 'race car' wouldn't, you're right. But, it's not a 'race car'

Besides, they can be removed in about 3 minutes, and the airjacks are still usable via external tank. The airjacks themselves weigh less than 1lb. each.

There is a SpA electronic fire supression tank mounted in the truck back behind all the fuel stuff and the battery. Hard to see in pics though, it's usually blocked by the dry break filler.
