Default "K&N" type of filter for OR cars?

I have ran K&N filters in my real cars for years, but I notice the lack of these type of filters for the off road cars. Is there a reason for this? I don't mind the foam but I think the K&N types are more efficient.

Do they manufacture something like the K&N?

Does anyone run this type of system? Are you happy with it?

Paper filters don't really block the fine dust from entering your mill.

For some reason I get a K&N add at the bottom of the page.

To answer your question without the smart allec comments...K&N make off road air filters for RC cars, but as stated they do not stop the small dust particles from entering your engine..Dirt and dust is the fastest and most efficient killer of these little tiny engines..Stick with foam, and a good oil
