Default What's the best air filter?

I've been using motor saver filters on all of my nitro cars/trucks. I'm wondering if there's a better choice out there? What is everyone else using. Judging by alot of the pics posted here, not many people use the motor savers brand. Any reasons why. I tried doing a search on this but my questions weren't answered. Thanks.

Default Motor saver all the way!

Motor saver filter all the way!

It is a VERY good design:
* rubber/wire-mesh cage keeps its shape and is very tough
* removable foam elements are easy to remove, clean, and lube
* gives very good airflow
* 1-pc filters more easy to damage & tear... must throw away if they are damaged

This is all I use on my gascars now.

not to mention when you go from a stock filter to a motorsaver you have to richen the needle because you get more air!

and it is easy to clean, I just use nitro cleaner on the foam and my air compressor on the mesh, awsome pwr
