The wildest show on the coast, Scrapin the Coast celebrates its 20th anniversary. It is the South’s largest and premier car, truck and bike show located in the city of Biloxi right of the Gulf Coast of Mississippi that started in 2002. The show is held at The Mississippi Coast Coliseum and Convention center that features an enormous outdoor show with an indoor section within the coliseum.
VIAIR exhibited at this year’s show and had the opportunity to have 2 booth vehicles featured built by MTI Automotive Designs, Alamo Customs, and Dru Custom Builds. Their 1959 Apache won “Best of Show Truck” and the 1968 C10 won “Best Interior”.
The Heart of Any Air Suspension System
VIAIR showcased the 310 Stealth Series. The all-new compressors provide performance in the quietest package we’ve ever produced. The 310 SS features upgraded internals, a newly developed head and a new metal filter assembly with internally integrated muffler, reducing audible noise levels by up to 50% when compared to our other comparable VIAIR compressors. Additionally, the 310 Stealth-Series compressors are RoHS/REACH certified and equipped with newly designed spring-loaded vibration isolators, black sleeved stainless steel leader hose and black nickel plated check valves that eliminate the possibility of high amperage restarts. It offers unmatched performance and reliability for air suspension systems, industrial applications, air horns and most off-road pneumatic needs.
Why is VIAIR the heart of any air suspension system?
- The compressor acts as the heart, air bags as the lungs, the controller as the brain, and airlines are like veins through the body.
- If your heart fails, the rest of your body cannot function.
- That’s why it’s important to purchase a good quality heart in order to receive a good running system. It’s as simple as that.
The heart of any air suspension system message is paired with our New 310 SS Compressors! Air suspension enthusiasts praise our sleek new head design and 100% Duty Cycle @ 100 PSI which is the perfect solution for upgrading your trunk setup. Learn more about our 310 SS here.
