is AIM a good brand? there is someone that i know that is selling 4 AIM cylinders, 6 valves (i think AIM), 10 switches, 3/4 horesepower blowjax compressor, Optima battery, 1/2" line for $900. good deal?
Buy the guy's battery...get the other stuff elsewhere.
Not sure who the absolute best cylinders are, but EAI sells cylinders, and I don't think I've heard bad stuff about them. Run 2 Viar 450 compressors, and Parker air valves. The switch box wouldn't be a bad thing to buy, I don't guess, and if the 1/2 inch line isn't cut up for that guy's car, the line would be fine, too. I'm just not big on AIM. Anybody who has around 5 different corporation names to attempt to sell their products without people knowing it's from AIM has issues.
I definately wouldn't reccomend AIM valves at all. Everyone i know that has had them has had them fail. The seals on the cylinders go out a lot too. my buddy had a set on his civic and blew out 2 seals running 120 psi.... compressor, battery, and switches should be good tho. i'd scoop them up for sure... just get parker valves and some nice cylinders... my 0.02
I insall and sell blowjax (aim,chassis tech) stuff and 1/4 of my business is selling stuff to people who bought other branded stuff and had it crapp out or got ripped off$$$$!. The cheap "gold" 2 pos valves are fairly nasty but the high pressure ones arnt too bad. They are going to stop selling them all togeter soon as they have the direct acting valves that absolutly kick ass. The low pressure aplo 3pos valves were shit but only a couple of dollars more get you the 250psi 3 position for tucks and these are very reliable and still cheap. Remember if you buy the cheapest of cheap stuff you cant expect it to be the best. The blowjax 3/4-1/2 hp comps are the goods, the 1/4hp will only get you A to B.
i LOVE THE AIM cYLINDER KITS. We have installed many of them with only 2 or three problems. Just don't use their valves. The only problem with the cylinders I have even encountered is a broken rod casue the fool was haulin ass and hit a speed bump locked up and a bad seal in a 3 yr old rod.
I've been fiddling around with my new switches and switch extensions and:
How the hell do you keep the switch extension in the right place?
You can't do it up too close to the switch mounting because it will foul against it, and also, due to the shape of the switch toggle (narrower towards the...
First off, lets consider this a rough draft! I want this thread to become the go to source that the other X-Frame thread should have been. The overall idea was great, but there are 7 pages so far of many unanswered ?'s, and unorganized answers littered throughout the thread. The goal here is to...
I have a dual 444c setup and since install ive had issues with tank leaking air. I replaced the existing check valves and still the same. Didn't know there was a torque value to them and thought I messed them up. Sooo replaced them again, set them to proper torque specs and still the same. Took...
