Default air blower

hey guys,

this one guy at the track had one of these to blow off his car. It had a decent amount of pressure. I don't know the exact psi, but it seems to be good enough to replace a air compressor.

check it out!

i jus ordered one. i'll let u guys know how it holds up!

I brought the Air Compressor to the track sat, and used it once..it doesn't work well at all. I ended up using someone else's Air Compressor.

that sucks! well, i think this blower should be good enough... not the good large air compressor, but for it's portability, i think it should do good. we will see!
