Default Pink Arrows Tyre Additive Vacuum

Just wanted to get your opinion on the following Tyre Additive Vacuum by Pink Arrows...

http://www.rc-area.co.uk/2012/02/21/...ditive-vacuum/

I like it, but is it a little too extreme?

I finally receieved a few for the shop and to tried one, they are a little over kill when you think about it, but once you have it and use it they are pretty trick and quick to use. It works awesome and soaks deeper than we can rub in by hands.

Wouldn't an oversized shock pump be less hassle and easier to carry?

probablly, make one and see if it works the same or even if it soaks all the way to the wheel (DEEP) like the pink arrows. I dont know if the pressure that the machine puts out with a battery works better because of suction is harder. I never made one or tried saucing until today. I think the vacum machine works well with a battery sucking harder and yes it does weigh 10 lbs. Pink Arr ows put a lot of time designing this so I give them credit and it is nice. Maybe pink arrow will read this thread and jump on and talk with us about it.

I know absolutly nothing about any of the saucing yet or machines. I do know we have been selling alot of the capicorn machines and SRC is coming out with one also next week.. SRC LOOKS JUST LIKE THE CAPICORN MACHINE.

Interesting with all this talk about banning additive for nitro and companies make equipment which make the job easier. Or am i mistaken and additive is allowed in the u.s. for nitro?

Completely legal in the US and always has been except for individual track bans. It just wasn't done much until recently. Also I believe Italy allows it which is why most of the additives and equipment geared towards nitro all seem to be coming from Italy, like the Capricorn machine.

Down under in Australia it is banned and also watching videos on rcracing.tv I got the impression it was banned everywhere.
