its been done, one of the problems is the delay. if you use the regular control servo's.

someone experimenting with an electronic servo similar to those on rc cars.

WHAT would happen if your near an airport or somewhere w/ lots of radio frequencys? Would that throw your shit everywhere...?
:0 Fuck that! :roflmao: :roflmao: :twak:

damn that would suck......ive seen people wire alarms up to their juice...but that was just dropping the car when they armed the alarm...

there is not much of a delay with "airbox" wireless controllers my homie and me hooked one up to his 61 impy for shits and giggles and the fucker came up rythmically 3-4 feet
and as for driving near airport there is a hot wire that directl plugs into ignition so it is dead while ignition is on you can also put a toggle on that to disable it the receiver only pics up that transmitters signal there are thousands of codes you have to program it when you hook it up witch is just holding a button for 5 seconds

and there is also vallet mode that shuts it of from the transmitter

Airports pose no problem. And to correct you, there are literally MILLIONS of codes out there flying through the air. Also keep in mind the FAA and FCC aren't gonna allow airports to use the same set of frequencies that every car alarm out there uses. Check the fine print on anything wireless.

That was the first I've heard of being able to get a decent rhythm and being able to hop wireless. I haven't checked into it in a while. I've had my pancake down switch hooked up to my alarm for a years, but "up" either goes too far or not enough, so I left that one alone.

the thing is not much of a time delay it's returning the stick to neutral before hitting again

million's
when i said thousands i meant thousands of thousands :ugh: :dunno:

That's why mine is only hooked up to drop. You will need the right transistors and resistors to come up with the right timing for raising the car. I tried with the trunk switch since iT's usually 1 to 2 seconds. Problem is, it only gets to the right height "sometimes"; depending on weather, battery status, etc. And my "pancake up" never lifted evenly so it didn't always work well, even when holding down the button for the trunk (with most alarms the trunk relay is energized as long as the button is held down.) And I wasn't happy with "sometimes" so I just stuck with dumping only.

And I'm sorry for correcting your "thousands" comment.

A thousand apologies... better yet "a million apologies" if that actually means thousands of thousands, too.

Can one of those wireless switchboxes work with hydraulics. ;)
Sure, but would u want your entire car controlled by a radio frequency that wasnt even regulated by even the fcc?

U could regulate the lift with a relay and some type of variable such as a potentiameter so u can adjust for variance in weather etc.

Sure you could use the potentiometer as your "adjustable resistor" but you'll still need some type of dependable timer; transistor. Then I was looking at a seperate set-up for front and rear because of the differences in speeds of lift. And like I said, it became too much of a pain-in-the-ass to be fun anymore.

I personally wouldn't trust a wireless device to raise my ride because of the possibility of getting a soleniod stuck. I want to be as close as possible to my disconnect. Lowering the ride is anther story.
