Default air filters

ok heres my question do you guys, run your outerfilters dry when the track is dusty and dry ? because when i was, running at my track my filter had guck all over it and my engine, flamed out all the sudden and my engine started to run richer .

so do you think i should just run, my outfilter dry because i think thats what is causeing my flame out and clogging up my engine.

same here.. A little trick I learned from someone on here is oil the inner filter and then oil the inside of the outer filter. So the dust wont stick to it and the little bit that does get through it wont make its way through. I've been doing it ever since.

I tried that last race. The dirt no longer "cakes" on the outside of the filter. I will continue to do this.
