Default **Alittle Nitro Air Filter Tip for you all...**

This is Horse Breather Leg Wrap/Sports Gauze. I use this stuff to put around my outer prefilter.. Its good in dusty/loomy tracks where it creates alot of dust. It sticks back to itself securely. Instead of cleaning your pre-filter, just change this guy out. It does not restrict any air flow.

The way you have this worded, it sounds like you never plan on replacing/cleaning your main filter again. Hope that's not the case. No amount of filtering is a replacement for routine filter maintenenace/replacement. Eventually some dirt gets sucked through every layer. Be careful

No, I mean it would be good for like the whole weekend racing... The Wrap blocks the dust pretty good. Just have to try some and see what ya think! it was only $2.20 a roll.

You can use these also, they are washable, cheap, and tested for use as a dry layer filter cover. These really do work well, and you can oil your pre-filter up well with this dry layer over the top of it. I know I've posted these pics before, but here is what they look like. They make all shapes and sizes for Hyper9's, Losi 2.0, MP9, Mugen, Xray, RB, OS Proline, AE... etc..




...and after 3/4 of a gallon+...

If they work so good why don't we see somebody like Kanai, Hara, Tebo, Cavalieri and all other pro-drivers using them and stick to their normal foam filters?
