Default Rapid inflation and delfation, not CTIS.

Hi folks, since I am lazy to deflate, I tended to get stuck. So embarked on a mission to reduce the laziness. First step was to hardwire a sizeable compressor, so that the electrics are permanently connected. I don't need to take compressor's out of bags/cases and then connect crocodile clamps to battery terminals under the bonnet. After about 6 uses, it takes me to inflate all 4 tires from 12psi to 35psi in 10 minutes, this is stopping the car to driving the car away, with all other offroading bits packed away, such as ABS fuse, flag, UHF antenna etc etc, and have some water.

Excuse the amateur video, but I am not great or patient with photography/videography.

The system is a copy of an American product called 2WayAir seen here on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/2Way-Air-Cent.../dp/B00P2YK89W

This is how itīs done in Iceland. https://www.google.is/url?sa=i&rct=j...92810021097531 You can inflate and deflate while driving. We use this alot over the winter time while we are driving in the mountains in much snow. and now some Icelanders has been working on a PLC computer that inflates and deflates to the desired preassure that you wanīt in your tires.

Good idea but that wouldn't last 10 minutes in Australia. Perfect for snow but not for the bush.

yup. We would not be driving in 1-4psi if we did not have alot of snow over the wintertime The tires would be destroyed in a few minutes if the snow is not there to cool them down.
