K&N might be great filters for ful size applications, but the one that fits a nitro engine are actually not designed as an intake filter.

The K&N filter you fits RC is actually a breather filter, not designed for the flow rate and velocity of a nitro engine, or the filtration of very small particles.

They do look cool, but bang for buck the mugen or elligi foam filter are a better choice for my money.

If you read what i wrote. I am only praising the the real car K&N filters here. And in my next post i said that i use a motorsaver on my rc nitro engines. all i meant to say and everyone keeps jumping me is that if i could get the same performance gain that real cars get form using a K&N then i would put one on my RC car!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God didn't meant to start a war or anything!

Ok i will ask this again what does TOM mean not to sound stupid or anything but i am a rookie compared to others on this board. If you are going to use acronyms then explain them please so the rest of us who don't know what you are talking about can get a clue..
