I use contact adhesive (Magic) to fix my air filters

They are cheap so I would not bother, just buy a new one. If you do not glue it up right you risk a "dirt leak" ruining a $150 engine for a $5 filter.

You should go and buy a motor saver air filter there around about $20 AUS it is the way to go

Great point! I totally agree with. Moreover, some engines nowadays do cost as high as $500, a Japanese Moded .12, for instance.

Check the filter regularly, and replace it at once when see any torn/worn.

Yeah, I like the motor savers filter better than those other type foam filters. It has a pretty good prefilter as well as replaceable foam elements. Also, I feel it is easier to clean and detect when you should replace the foam elements as they are white rather than black.

Default Motor Saver Filters

Guys;

The thing I like about the Motor Savers is the Screen on the outside keeps the dust from infiltrating the cells of the Foam. There is just no way dirt/dust is going inside that Engine with a Motor Saver.
5 Nitro vehicles (and counting) and EVERYONE of them has a Motor Saver.
