The off center one probably will not work. Most INS boxes have fingers on the bottom of the housing that hold the bottom of the filter.

Wingracer is correct the off center filter will not work on a ins box.

Kinda like today’s kids with the annoying Coffee Cans for mufflers AKA Folgers Racing :lol

are we talking about little rc engines which are basically miniature airpumps or a v-8 engine with a dual exaust?
seriously i dont think its a big difference with or without a ins box,if you are required to use a silencer just use a off-road filter
i think the exaust fumes and oil mist should be more of a concern,whats next filters that mount on the exaust stinger?
i should be quiet as some race official/organizer will find a way to capitalize on that also
anyway use what makes you happy

You shouldn't be so opinionated about things you haven't experienced.

Here in Europe we have to run INS boxes and it's a good thing.

At the last race, my son lost the top half of his INS box in an accident and you could hear the out of the entire field of ten 1:8th scale cars, easily.

The intake noise of an 2-stroke engine at over 40 k rpms is immense.

In light of more and more tracks having to shut down because of complaints about the noise, we should do whatever we can to reduce that noise.

NovaRossi INS is almost the same as the RB INS. These to boxes has fitted for HSN adjustment. Center type filter will fit better than the off-centered air filter.

Been racing since '85. INS is required in ROAR. With noise level lower, I haven't seen any differance with or without it. I just replace with a clean one each race. Maintenance habits b4 races. Club races should be up to club and track if reqiured

Questions?? Witch way is best?

Witch way should the intakes of the ins box face?

Forward for a ram air like affect like a motor bike Or
Back ward for better aero sucking in the i guess low pressure air flowing over top

I have the holes facing forward. I'm sure most guys have it the same way.

Most pros say to run it facing to the side. Forward can cause it to lean out on the straight, backward means slower. I really don't notice any difference either way.

Can someone confirm better airflow between the different INS boxes? I'm running the Xceed right now but wondering if something is better.
