Default Fuel Filters

Does anyone use these? Do they make a difference?

fuel filters are just added insurance in keeping dirt out of your engine. Whenever refueling dirt can get into the fuel tank and eventually into the lines then into the engine which is a bad thing. Others put multiple filters to have more fuel volume. They dont make any performance gains

I tryed 'em for awhile and took 'em off. There is one in the tank and it's one more thing to screw up. Keep it simple and try to clean the tank lid befor you fuel with something, air, NITRO Force spray, or the stuff they use for computer keyboards. I know, when your racin' it's tough, but what the hey, KEEP IT SIMPLE.

Use an inline filter, better safe than a blown engine.

NEVER run without a fuel filter. Would you run with no airfilter?

Last time I looked there's one in the tank. Ask any Losi man about it. Keep it simple, one less thing to go wrong. Can't tell you how many had tuning isuses till they took it out. AIR LEAKS
