this mod will never work cause its not aerodynamicaly placed. It should point forward. Also imagine how much filter-oil it needs. It would cost lots of $$$ to maintain :P

Let me know when it'll be available. Finding a touring body to fit it might be a problem though.

AI, you are an inspiration to all of us...
Why didn't I think of that before??? Do you need a business partner?
I just have two questions. How do you secure the filter on to the car?? I have a super duper turbo engine. Does it come any bigger??

Now AI's mod is simple, effective, light (AIR filter), genius!!!

C) Aren't those giant black mushrooms posionous?
D) Now you've done it! You've lost all credibility in this forum.
E) That part goes in the car behind the little car.
F) What are you going to do with this? Prove how fast your engine is by racing a Ferrari?
G) My grandfather did that with his r/c car - just before we put him in a care home.
H) You didn't show that to the guys at work, did you?
I) I bet Derek Bono will give you a free subscription to Xtreme RC Cars for that one.
J) Do other objects in your life appear smaller than they really are?
K) I tried that once, but the race director yelled at me and told me never to show up at the track again.
L) That's what happens when you believe everything Team Mugen tells you.
M) Didn't someone from Team Orion R&D already try that with the CRF?
N) Now just relax and call 1-800-NEED-HLP
P) That's nothing new. All the guys in the Z Main have that mod!
Q) Did you know that your right rear tire is chunked? That could be a real problem!
R) Is that an air filter for an R40?


this was too funny
