Default 1/10th .12 Air filters

Anyone know who manufacturers these air filters.....

http://www.vast-8.se/typo3/fileadmin...NT_ass_800.jpg

almost every 1/10 nitro racer seems to have this exact filter fitted, I've just got my 1st turbo motor with a 14mm carb inlet and my lhs's are hopeless and dont stock a cheap hi flow air filter I can replace frequently. I'd appreciate any help.

Cheers

I use these by Ellegi Technics.

Same shape to the one in your picture, many different companies produce the same shape air filter.

Yeah I got one for 3 dollars. I know lots of companies who make them. If you can though get one thats from your motor company.

But only a select few make motors and filters so you might be out of luck.

The motorsaver filter is also a different type thats supposed to be pretty good. I used the standard foam that you have pictured.
