I just noticed the ebay dude posted some NEW green Super High-flow racing filter covers up. Anyone try them yet? They come in a two pack for $11.99,... nice and cheap.. I suppose they wont filter quite as well as the standard one, but for racing purposes I guess more flow matters to some.

Here is the link to the new SUPER FLOW Performance Florescent green ones I found..

I also had great luck with the RB Concept filter housing and RB filters....IMO these are the best filters in the industry. The cage is heavy though...
+1 on the EDS and RB they work and fit perfect on the 808 housing

When I first got the ebay jobs, I was a little skeptical because I couldnt quite picture how they could effectively "cover" and "seal" around the rather strange shape of the stock RC8 filter, but i've been using them for some time now and i've been beyond impressed with them. Here's some pics to show how they go on the stock RC8 type filter, and a picture of what it looks like after two weekends of running [All I did was dust the outside off, the inside literally looks brand new still]




So, +infinity on the ebay outwears, IMO it don't matter what the heck filter you use under them, you've got Chuck Norris on the outside roundhouse kickin' the hell out of dirt and dust.

That paint scheme, and the RB head, with the charcoal colored cover just looks bad A$$..! Nice pics,.. I wouldn't want to meet up against that buggy on the track, it just looks mean!

Ya, if more people tried them they would defiantly save some maintenance time and some cash. Don't let them go too long though, I'd hate to see you ruin your RB,.. those things scream!

Thanks man, haha I need to spend less time making my buggy look cool and more time practicing though! This motor is a monster though, I just got my pipe switched over to an RB from one of those Jammin' pipes. Boy did the RB pipe make it come alive.

That pipe looks like the RB063 or a 2045? I'm going to try the RB pipe also. I have been running the JP series pipes for years.

I tested that new super High Flow filter cover from ebay. It really does flow better when you blow air through it, but I noticed the foam pre-filter got dirty a little quicker. I'll probably run the Fluorescent Green Super Flow filter cover for race day and the standard one for practice.

I also noticed Ebay is offering a 10% discount on purchases right now, so you could save some cash on the two packs.

Default oil

I use swwaff ? i think it's called. Its water washable. You put it on and let it dry, overnight is the only drawback i see.Very sticky, no fine dust threw it that i can see.
Any one else using this.

YEP--also called Rock oil! Very good stuff and so easy to wash out your filters. I use it to oil up my UNI filter in my ATV as well

Yeah its an 063 with a 98mm header. I went to my LHS with intending to buy a 2045 with a 92mm header... but they were out of stock. The guy working there said I wanted an 063 with a 98mm anyways for our local track, and when I asked "you think so?" he said "I know so". So I hope this pipe actually is better and he wasnt just trying to get the sale, who knows

your rc8 looks identical to mine except the paint is a little different. I run the rbs7 l2g instead of the ws7 and the 2045 pipe is nice, I have it on mine. I havent tried the 063 thou so I cant compare. As far as filters go I was using the rc8 filter but switched to the losi.

I use lisi filters and housing on my Jammin X1 CR w/ O.S. 28. I like them because it comes with a small mounting bracket. I attach it to the diff brace, and its sturdy as hell.

The report on the new high flow filter covers....

I ran the new ebay High-Flow Florescent Green Filter Covers this weekend, and they defiantly flow better. My filter was still perfect after a 25 minute warm up, (3) 7 minute qualifiers with warm ups, and 15 minutes of practice after the quals ended. Total of an hour and ten minutes run time, and the filter still looked good
