    Dude just build your own for about $150. I know you've seen the tech article. And if you want build 2 and send me one.

    "Doing the oil thing" takes 10 minutes. Seriously, it's really easy. Unless you hate DIY and like to waste money, just get a junkyard york, fab a bracket, buy the pulley, get a tank from a semi junkyard, buy all the stuff that's in the tech article, and put it all together. It'll be WAY less than $530. Convinced?:D

    $530? thats just crazy. set up a CO2 tank yourself and save a ton of $ and hassel. Spend the rest of the $ on something that actually improves perf.
