Collection: Trick Tank

In October 1991, Bob Gilbertson an NHRA funny car driver began production and sale of a unique, aluminium air tank after the racing community had expressed an overwhelming demand. Drawing on many years of expertise in the manufacture of industrial aluminium tanks, he developed a lightweight, portable air supply that was corrosion-free.

To understand what makes the Trick Tank so unique, you have to examine the only alternative, painted steel. Steel tanks are heavy, they corrode easily and carry a suggested discard date which is clearly stamped onto the top of each tank. Why would you have to throw it away? The air fill source generally contains condensation which eats away at the tank’s inner steel walls. Over time, the walls become gradually thinner until the tank develops rust holes and will no longer contain the air. The Trick Tank is manufactured from the same welding and test specifications as are set out for military tanks.
