    I have them in my Cup car and its the best invention known to racing when it comes to fast service at the track. Tip ALWAYS have safety collars on

    Lots of ways to loose some of the 11 lbs fast if its that much of a concern

    No 22lbs is the lightest set I can find including hardware etc. 11 lbs total I'd do it, but 22 is too much for me for now. I've won/lost several events by 1-3 hundredths of a second before which indeed 22 lbs would have changed those outcomes. I'll keep jacking up for now hehe.

    The Airjax must be larger bore because it only took 215# of pressure to lift my ACR. I have to add up how much weight this added . I am also adding trans and diff cooler but adding tillet driverside race seat so I will get some lbs back.

    Shit actually I didn't add in the brackets to support them, I was thinking they were welded directly to frame. So around 30 lbs would be the mimimum weight and that's the very expensive systems to get the jack weight down that low

    What's the max air pressure on the airjax?

    Maybe just run 2 of them, do you really need all 4 wheels in the air?

    Yeah I do for tire warmers. I only use three jacks though. One on one side, two on the others. I use the smallest 1500lb alumimum harbor freight jacks, pretty light and small, easy to store. Takes maybe 2-3 minutes to get the car up. Takes much longer to get the warmers on and set up though, but what else do you do between sessions? hehe.
