Default Air Filter

Has anybody used the RB Concepts 2 stage air filter and if so how did they work, also who makes a good 2 stage filter. I will be using it on a Truggy in really dusty conditions. I did a search and couldn't find any info.
Thanks in advance!

Should work fine in a truggy just expensive is all & for buggy there hard to fit,realy huge filter. I would suggest if you run buggy now or will soon find a smaller filter to start with but the quality of the RB is good.

I ran the RB two piece in the past. It's not bad, but a bit heavy compared to the all plastic ones available. Also, if you run the rb, make sure to use a sealant on the base of the filter to seal the aluminum center to the plastic side.
To be honest, I'd go with one from mugen or proline. They're cheaper and as long as you use a good element, they will perform just the same as the more expensive RB unit. I've run the Mugen one from the MBX buggies with RB filter elements with good results for the past 4 years or so. RB's filter elements are really good, just be sure to oil the inner up well.
good luck.

I was thinking that with the star cut or whatever you call the shape of there filter it would give me more surface area to filter with, Iwas going to use my Mugen housing and put there element in it.
