    I saw 1 or 2 people running that set up in whistler this summer. I don't know how you plan on coming upon a remote resi air, unless you are hooked up with fox or something...

    I think you save 1/2 pound with a dhx air vs. a dhx coil w/ ti spring.

    Do a search for it, I believe the weights were posted.

    Buy my barely used '05 and send it to Turner and get it painted white...or buy an '06 for $2495 per D.T.
