Anyone using a warn SPI or VTC compressor

I am looking to get one of the big warn compressors to use instead of co2. Around here co2 costs 28 dollars for a 10 pound tank. I am switching to beadlock wheels in a couple weeks and will also be going to 40's soon after.
With that combo I am not looking forward to filling up a co2 tank on a regular basis.

Anyone have some real world experience with either of thes?

I have been considering the VTC as well.

LeftHandRubi has one and says he is happy with its performance. The only downside is size

I switched from a Powertank to the Warn SPI awhile ago. I've been pretty satisfied with the performance airing up 38's and 40's. Of course its not as fast as the PT but you also don't have to get if refilled. I have a 2.5 gallon tank underneath too. I looked at the V model but it was bigger than I wanted. The only other compressor I had to compare to was the Viair P400 and the SPI leaves that one way behind.

Here is what LeftHandRubi told me:

Thanks alasha. That's what he told me as well. I ended upmgetting the SPI unit as. The VTC was just a little too big for the spacem I had in mind
