Guys keep in mind the Hi-flow (florescent green) ones wont stop as much dust as the standard style.

Ya, some tracks have crazy fine dust that just gets everywhere. Do you have any to hi-end flow issues with that much wrap on the filter, I tried it long time ago but my tune was weird..?

Thumbs up Filter Covers

I did the same test with this new Hi-flow filter, and noticed a small difference over the standard covers. But I'm sure the difference is negligible. Also these should fit fine on the new Losi 2.0.

Hi-flow:

Haven't tried the hi-flow but can't say enough good things about the standard ones. I used to change the filter out after every qualifier, now the inner filter looks barely used after a whole day racing.

Oil both inner and outer foam elements, but run the dry layer filter cover over both. It helps stop caking by not holding/attracting dirt like the exposed oiled foam will.

I have tried the losi setup, with the ebay covers (regular not high flow). I still have to change my filter, at least the outer stage after every heat or about 6 mins. If I am in 30 min main, I don't change the filter during pit, I live with it. I can definitely tell by the end of the main my engine is running extra rich and getting close to flame out. I am sure my motor will not last as long. I don't know how you guys get 'several weekends' on a filter! I have even gone to the extent of trying to prototype an air cage in my body to shield the filter from all the dust.

Running the ebay covers definitely helps noticeably. The dust is usually trapped in the outer filter w/ the larger debris deflected by the ebay cover. My problem is in no time, the outer stage gets caked and restricts air flow, even with the ebay cover.

Just wondering what kind of filter oil, and how much your using? Maybe going with a larger filter would help maybe like a thicker RB round style filter. What brand are you using?
