no link but the t-maxx one is No. 1060,10/11mm,60 degree bend.it is meant to have more airflow and be lighter than the old one.

I use the new style on both my Maxx and XXXNT-DA.
I had trouble with the old one coming off but not the New ones.
Use DA to clean the carb and the MS tube before installation.
Doing this will help the filter get a good grip when you tighten the zip tie.

easy-maxx, look at the cold air kit how-to in the reviews section of this site. Doing this little how-to will also help keep the air filter on.

I think I could swing the maxx around with the filter and still not come off, its on TIGHT now.

To this day i have never seen motor saver air filters in my LHS, i haven't even seen pro- line tyres:mad: though i don't go there much apart from the little things which i can really rely on them for or the big things i go across town. Though if i do want to have specialist items i shop on towerhobbies or rclimited.

you don`t know what your missing,to go into a lhs stocked to the ceiling with goodies,and for them to order in what they don`t have in stock

that is a result for you i`d say,to get anything in that situ would be good.how can anyone prove they did not let the filter fall off.

I now run an os filter that came w/ my cv-x and it is awesome. It is kinda like the traxxas one except it has two filter elements and no dirt gets past the first one. I think its a little bit restrictive but it keeps the dirt out :banana:

thedominator How long have you been useing the O.S. filter? I have 3 O.S. motors and the filters look pretty good but have been using the motor saver. I have looked at them but never used them because the motor saver as always worked good for me.
