Default Slow air compressor

Anyone elses ELC compressor really slow? It raises the rear as fast as I would want it to, but it takes A REALLY LONG TIME to fill a low tire.

The pump is capable of 70psi, but extremely low volume. Look at the inside diameter of the line.

It'* considered a utility inflator, and wasn't really intended for car tires.

Remember a real air compressor capable of supplying a 1/4 line has a 4-5 HP motor and 30 gallon tank.
