Default RC8 Air Filter

Just threw an RC8 air filter on my CRT. Should I foam oil the inner AND the outer foams? Element is thinner than most.

Thanks for any input!

Yes, oil both inner and outer foams. Run one of these ebay dry layer filter covers over the top of it, and you will have the best filtration you can get. They work very well, and are washable/re-usable!

I run K-factory foam filter with K-Factory oil on it. Just a few drops on the outer does its work on my Go 7p engine!

If I run on outdoor tracks I do not oil the outer filter just the inner.
