alot of the guys i see running smaller electric compressors have them in the tail but you could always zip tie it up out of the way or fab a little bracket for it? i'm sure some of the die hard draggers will chime in though and give some better advice.

mini compressor

just finished putting one in the tail, and two 12 oz paintball bottles in the sides converted to air storage. any compressor will work, torn apart to the bare unit itself. it needs little room to function properly, mine is tie wrapped with strong ties, cushioned in foam to one of the subframe braces, my push button switch is located in the bottom of the right side cover, pressure guage in the steering stem. on board air is great.

There's room under there?!!! I guess it could be mounted anywhere there's room really. There's quite a fee guys here I've seen run the tiny electric compressor from a "slime" car-bike kit and they seem to work great. And cost about $20-$25!!!

I got the cheapest slime compressor for Advance auto, took it out the case and mounted it between the subframe and plastic on the clutch side. The compressor is the easy part, good luck with the bottle if its going in the tail.
