Dirt bike oil is designed for dirt bike filters... If you have ever seen a dirt bike foam filter you know it's nothing like a RC car foam filter...

Next month (9/09), Lucky 7 Rc will be releasing a full line of pre-oiled foam filters. RB/xray, Losi, x6 mugen, mugen/Os/ofna, proline,

Yea, but if there cut to the right size, and have good oil, and fair price, I'll gladly go this route. Any help with clean-up time is welcome.

actually not... Dirt bike filters are made with a completely different foam, and have a much greater "ppi" rating (pores per inch)... which is why in testing we found the oils designed for dirt bikes to be too thick for RC.

I think you'll find the price good enough to where your not cleaning them anymore.

RC Car filter oil may per a few percentile better than dirt bike oil but at the end of the day and for the price dirt bike oil is just as good, save money and remember to change frequently.

I've got a quart bottle (three lifetime supply) of Yamaha oil. It's just as blue and just as tacky as the AE stuff.

If the quart bottle of bike AFO is too thick then just thin it out with Marvel mystery oil.
