I am using the Taiwan pump that you see in some of the model shops in MK (Wing Jet, Harmony etc), I think it goes for around $6xx-7xx (I can't remember).

But using the pump alone is only so so.....I ended up buying a reservoir bottle to store the air in before getting to the gun. This makes a big difference because I can control the psi at the gun and keep this fairly constant for even painting. With just the pump, the moment you press the button the pressure will drop to the output level of the pump, no control!!

The reservoir was around $400....but well worth it!

You can buy a 2 in 1 pump and reservoir...the pump is a dual compressor and gets to normal operating pressure very quickly...this is a very nice setup. I think the price is around $14xx.

KY has been very conservative with the mods on the Evo...its his F201 I'm concerned about!!!!!

but how about the water vapor in the air? i thought theres a bottle that catches the vapor...

what are those air tanks? just mini tanks that stores air?
and how bad was the compressor without the tank? how strong was the pressure?

hahaha...nono..its like those professional compressor....nothing like the tamiya one..

i have the tamiya one...and im using a 12V power supply to use it....
using 7.2V is just gives off a very weak pressure!

i tested my KX1 in PYC today, the car still prefer a tighter belt setup for better acceleration. Due to hot weather today, i use one gear down on the pinion (1:8.48 with 8T). however, the car still dont have good acceleration and top speed. something wrong with my ESC again ???

Yes I have a seperate water trap...you do need it..after about 1/2 hour spraying you see a fair bit of water in there!!!

The tank is about 1.5-2 litre in size...without it you need to let the compressor 'catch its breath' after each pass if you are spraying a large area. Compressor alone is ok for detail work...but pressure is not very constant!!
