you should deff get a water trap.and i daily drive my mk4 and i have 444 single compressor and it does fine
Ok so long story short im finally leaving static for bags, But before i order everything i want to make sure i have everything and i have a few questions.
But first here's some test fits of the wheels:

Now on to the questions:
Will the ecs wheel centering plates work with bags? And this will be my daily driver, should i stay with the single 444c? Or should i get dual. And should i bother with a trap? I have read that some leak more than actually collecting water. And what else should i get while buying everything? I just want to be sure of everything so i can order ASAP, and do it all right the first time. Oh and the names DJ. Thanks
this one should work fine correct? And would air line size would be best?

I have a small bit of experience to share with water traps. I don't have any in my system and last night I had to pull the tank out (subwoofer died, tank is attached to sub enclosure). I got about 1/2 pint of water out of the tank. I've been on a roadtrip the past couple weeks and have laid down over 4000 miles. My trunk is full of crap so I didn't drain it like usual. Not very much water but I think I'll be looking for a place to put a water trap now. Like everything in this world (the VW world that is..), you learn as you go. I have an automatic water trap on my plasma cutter back home, I wonder if that'll work..

I'd reccommend 3/8" lines. I think the v2 with 3/8" lines achieves the perfect air up/down speed
If you go with 1/4" lines and it ends up being too slow.. You are stuck having to run new lines. If you go bigger and it's too quick for you you could always just add flow controls.

bags and wheels = build thread
thanks for the advise guys, and ill just run the bigger lines in the first place, id rather do it right the first time around. Starting to work on the trunk layout. I will post picts with updates. Wait till you see my theme
What do you guys think? i like the wheels i rebuilt, but there is suck a gap, and i dont want to have to pull my fenders THAT much to make it sit between the lip.
Heres the specs:
17x9.5 all around
33mm adapter rear, 38mm rear
to me it just seems way worth the extra cash to get it. IMO
Sorry can't quite tell what happened, did your tire peel off your rim?
And you put the car down with the strut halfway in the spindle?? If so you are crazy/stupid, sorry to say. The weight of the car will cause the strut to bind and will actually prevent it from sliding down into the spindle.
My suggestion still stands, 3/4" COLD chisel pounded in 90% of the way, lube, jack under car
