I just got the senco pc1130. It cost 150 but should be worth every penny. Its small, oiled and has 3.5cfm at 90psi. Thats as much as i will need and i think its bullet proof.

I have that one from Home Depot works great, very quiet, easy to move around and holds air very well.... and no leaks after a years use at the track with lots of other guys wanting to use it....Yes air goes quick, but thats any 1.5 tank. But she's QUIET....and dont trip the breakers...

I have the harbor freight pancake 3gallon (not the one previously mentioned, this one is usually $59 or cheaper, you'll notice they don't rate the hp...) and it isn't optimal for air gun duty, although I'm going go try the smaller nozzle and see what that does.

If I had to do it again I'd buy the 6 gallon Porter Cable and just be done... A friend has it and it's awesome.

I should've added that CFM is more important than tank size. You don't need a large reserve(tank) if the compressor keeps up with the tool you're using. The bigger tanks will just make the compressor run more if the CFM rating cant keep up to begin with.

Thats the one I have, does the trick and has been through at least a year of major track dirt and still work fine.

Its a good bang for the buck, if your not giving your buggy a total air bath.

Thats fine, but should go gas...they pull a lot amps and trip breakers on already overloaded fuse boxes...least at our track.

Crash,

Yup that's the one I was talking about. Everyone that I know that has one just loves it. Being easy on the amp draw is probably one of the big reasons.

Default Porter cable

I have a porter cable air compressor and I have run the dog snot out of it for about 4 years. Still works....It's loud....Is there a quiet and compact air compressor? I've never seen one......Those old style wheel and belt ones are the best. clunk clunk clunk is better than braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa....

Do they still make those?

I have a Small 3 gallon one i stole from my dad when i moved out. I dont know what kind it is but it is loud. So i made a plywood box that covers it and it muffles the noise a good amount. Its not quite but it enough that it wont piss off other ppl.
