A two stage filter with both elements oiled good for 1/8 and 1/10. Or get an Associated filter set and only oil the foam outer element not the paper element generally for 1/10 (.12-.18 engines).

BTW you never indicated what type of vehicle it's for, 1/10 or 1/8.

1/8 scale buggies, do you go through a lot of filters?

Sometimes, it's much better to change filters than rebuild an engine.

I use the stock Kyosho SP2 filter on my 777 with prefilters from either OFNA or Panther over the stock element. If it's very dry and dusty I oil both the filter and the prefilter to trap all the dust. Just have several pre-oiled prefilters on hand and change them every other heat or sooner as necessary.

AreCee good advice!

I use the Mugen main filter with the RB prefilters on my .21's. I have made it a habbit to oil both filters no mater what. IMO even if you gained just a little bit of performance by not oiling the prefilter it would be so small you would never notice. Fine dust is the biggest killer of our nitro engines, so for peace of mind oil both and make sure you filter neck is well secured to the carb body and will not come off or suck dust.
