New ’09 Motor Saver Air Filters!

New From Motor Saver Filters, Inc.


Motor Saver Filters has recently released a new line of ’09 air filters for 1/8 scale off-road in 5 different configurations: Buggy / Truggy, Revo, T-Maxx, Savage, and one for all other trucks. This new 4th generation air filter features a new very fine micron screen that is hydrophobic (water repellent). This combination of tighter outer screen and larger surface area keeps out dirt better than ever before allowing for much longer run times between cleanings, extending the life of the foam.

Traditional foam filters clog much quicker and need to have the foam changed out frequently. Motor Saver’s new outer screen dramatically cuts down dirt penetration and eliminates the need for outside foam. Putting the outside foam to the inside greatly increases the length of time between cleanings. Instead of outside foam that has a tendency to leek around the outside edges, the foam is encapsulated in a tight sealed screen allowing for better sealing.

1/8 Scale Buggy / Truggy Air Filter #151691

The new ’09 buggy / truggy, 151691, air filter was completely redesigned. Motor Saver increased the surface area as much as possible to still be able to fit under most buggy and truggy bodies, allowing for even better breathing and less clogging. The plastic is specially formulated exclusively for Motor Saver Filters for extreme lightness. A bracket kit for you to customize to your buggy, or truggy, is available upon request at no additional charge.

Revo 2.5 / 3.3 Air Filter #RT80

The new ’09 Revo, RT80, air filter comes with a extended neck that allows the air cleaner to sit on the outer lower level of the transmission for lower center of gravity. The spring-loaded bracket allows the air filter to be taken off and on very easily and eliminates spur gear rubbing caused by high impact. The new front deflects dirt and has more surface area than previous models.

The new ’09 Savage, SAV100, air filter is designed for big block engines, such as the Savage XL K5.9. Expect longer run-times between cleaning inside foam. Inside cartridge is pulled off for fast cleaning. Fits all Savage models.

T-Maxx 2.5 / 3.3 Air Filter #TMX80

The new ’09 T-Maxx, TMX80, air filter has more surface area than the previous model. The new fine micron screen allows for a wide range of conditions from wet and muddy to very fine powdery dust allowing for much longer run times with less foam replacement making it more economical. Comes with a spring-loaded bracket that allows the air filter to be taken off and on very easily. The filter has two body clips: one to hold the bracket on and one to hold the air filter tightly together.

1/8 Scale Off-Road Truck Air Filter #151661

The new ’09 Truck filter, 151661, is sold with the small neck end cap. An extended cap is sold separately if needed for longer reach. Inside foam comes pre-oiled. Foam can quickly be removed and easily cleaned. Fits most trucks. A bracket kit for you to customize to your truck, is available upon request at no additional charge.
