I use the RB stuff, the new formula is really sticky and goes on thin. I used to clean my filters got got sick and tired of wasting naphtha and other things, I just replace it with a fresh new filter.

Torco's Air Filter one is awesome, works very consistently with PJ1, but a bit more tacky. Less expensive as well per volume as some other brands as well.

$6.95 for a 13 oz. can.

Check it out.

No one has said dynamite? It looks like the same oil thats on the losi pre-oiled foams.

What you guys think of the dynamite stuff?

+1 on the pj1 and the pj1 cleaner.Any motorcycle shop should carry it.It's much better then any rc company could come up with.Plus like most rc companys out there they sell it in little bottles and charge way to much for it.This hobby is a f -ing rip off so anytime i can make something myself or save money i'm all for it

Soak your filter with wd40, let it sit about 10 minutes.

It's the same oil, I buy the Losi pre oiled and when they are dirty I usually reuse the foams once then toss them.

Buy a bottle of PJ1 and forget about any and all air filter worries! 1 bottle will also last forever! They sell the oil in spray and liquid form...but I suggest buying the liquid form.

On another note, I have been running the Lucky 7 pre-oiled filters and have been pleased thus far...

I would like to know if any one has used this stuff and if it is good??? I have been running it for the last few races and it is working good but I am use to the ofna blue stuff that is super sticky, this stuff is less tacky but seems to be working. What do you think?? Thanks.
