nice stuff
I've been using RD logics filters and they are great. I use it about 2 gallons. I'm using this oil http://www.duratrax.com/caraccys/dtxc2465.html
I have also tried this one, but it is worst than Rdlogics http://rc-mushroom.com/product_info.php?products_id=477
Can I use kerosene to clean the air filter? I always clean with water and soap
Where can I found GC filters online?

I just picked up some No-Toll air filter oil. This stuff has just the right amount of tack and it seems to revitalize my filter element. My filter element was stating to shink and become hard the No-toll soften the element and made it expand to it's original size 16oz bottle was 7.50 any motorcycle shop should carry air filter oil.

Which filter are you using? - http://www.motorsaverfilters.com/

What oil are you using?

lil-bump - Which Motorsaver filter are you using??
I'm using the straight 1/10 large base filters.
I was using motorcycle air filter oil, very sticky stuff. Now I'm using K&N filter oil from the K&N FIPK intake kit

For air filter oil, i use a mixture of Methanol and castor oil. Rody Roem and Team RB were using this at the 200mm worlds. Im pretty sure JP uses something similar as well.

I have a Motorsaver airfilter and I love it.
Here's a tip to save money on the oil:
Go to your local auto parts store and get Marvel Mystery Oil. It costs about $2-$3 per pint (as compared for per 2 oz of filter oil at a hobby shop).
It works just as well as filter oil and it'll last you a looooong time. It's also another great oil to use for after run oil, if you happen to use it.

I agree using marvel mystery oil for after run but I don't think its tacky enough for air filter oil.

Mike Ellis uses the GQ filters too even though he didnt say it. I clean them with soap and water and lube them with Marvel. I usually bring 3 or 4 with me to a race and switch them about every half hour of run time.
