    Are any of you that are running hydraulics using
    accumulators?

    I am not a hydraulic expert but i would think that
    using accumulators would make the ride somewhat better
    than not using them.
    Do any of you have any thoughts on this?

    and a streetcharger and all your batteries are about the same price as a belt driven compressor.

    WORD!!

    I charge mine once every 2 weeks overnite or before a show. My charger cost me $ 60.00 and my 4 bats cost me $300.00 total (Canadian Dollars)

    The one thing that I like about bags is that they are self sufficient.

    Around here I can get a decent two pump set up for around $500 used. So with bateries and charger around $1000 and that's Canadian. I'd like to see you get a decent fb bag set up for that little. I spent about that much on my front only. My Bestfriend, and co president of our car club has juice and only charges his batteries once every two weeks.

    I'm gonna go with hydros when I do my set up. I like the sound better..... (bags just go pisssst, pissst. and then the compressor turns on and you get ddddddddddddddd.) But that is just one of the reasons. If you don't know what to get go to a show and see what you like better.

    The key word is USED. Anything used drops drastically in price after it's used. I'm sure if you looked you could find a full used bag kit for close to that much. Most people with bags upgrade to faster setups and keep most of the components unlike people with hydros that will rip their whole setup out when they realize bags are better.:rofl:

    The fact is at around $1000 Canadian (about $750 U.S.) You can't get anything better than a crappy aim fb setup, and it will NOT and I rerpeat NOT be as fast as hydros. Like I said I have some of the fastest bags in my town, and speed costs, accesively! Why is it you never see hopping comps with bags? or when uyou see a vid of a bagged ride hopping six inches your like "wow" when any two pump can get a good couple feet?

    so how much would it be ALL IN ALL for hydros all around on a 1st gen blazer ? I seen a juiced towncar the other day, i could tell it had them so i told him to hit it an just like that, that thing went like 5' in the air, it was pretty cool.

    So ALL IN ALL, this includeds all batterys, wires, etc and any mounts or stuff i may need to install.

    any websites?
