i see, 80 ml air filter oil here is about 3.5 usd and lasts a month
we apply only once to 3x a day, once or twice a week

Did you squeeze the excess out of the filter?

There is no such thing as low priced in 1/8th scale nitro racing. Everything is over priced.....

But DAMN IT SURE IS FUN

PJ1 or No toil filter oil works like a champ. K&N does too, but I have a ton of No Toil onhand for my dirt bike.

For R/C apps... put the new filter in a ziplock bag and coat the inside of the bag with the oil. squeeze the bag around the filter until it is uniformly lightly saturated. turn the bag upside down and let the filter fall onto a paper towel. Let dry for 10-15 mins, as the alcohol needs to evaporate. Install.

Also, try 3M Coban wrap for a prefilter. It sticks only to itself, filters well, and is completely breathable. It i designed to be used in wound care, but works spectacularly as a prefilter. Simply wrap it around your current setup (as a 3-stage) or take off your current outer filter and use this instead. A roll costs 3-4 bucks at walgreens, and you can easily replace the prefilter every heat.

The 3M Coban wrap work good. After a day of racing the prefilter is still clean. I did notice that you need to use the same length when you replace or close to it as it will through your tune off if you don't.

Get the PJ-1 and be done.....my motorcycle shop must've ripped me off, wasn't $8 but it's so great I don't care. I got the air filter oil and the cleaner for $20. The cleaner might even be better than the oil, LOL! Dish soap cleaning always left the filters dingy looking. PJ-1 cleaner has them looking like new!
