Outerwears Pre-filters are designed to enhance the efficiency of any performance or exposed air filter. The Pre-filter is constructed with a proprietary polyester mesh with uniform micron openings, treated with an optional hydrophobic water-repellent process. The mesh is UV resistant, filters debris down to .005, is shatter proof in freezing temperatures, and resistant to heat up to 450 degrees. The material is puncture resistant and has elasticity characteristics allowing the threads to return to the original position in the event the threads have been impacted or shifted. The manufacturing process incorporates a welded seam for strength, eliminating needle holes and potential failure points in the material. The top seam utilizes specialized thread and cording to reinforce durability of the top. Four stock colors are available in either regular or the water-repellent variety. Pre-filters are designed to deflect the damaging debris, which clogs air filters, compromising peak air-flow and horsepower. The Pre-filter also extends the time between servicing intervals reducing costs and increasing convenience for the consumer.

I have bought 3 of these now. At first they work great and l like the draw string on them to close instead of using zip ties like on other models. After a few races though each of these has holes in it. I will start using panty hose in the future instead of replacing these at $16 each.
OK, I agree the Outerwears Pre-Filters are pricey, but I really think they're worth it. I've been running a pre-filter on my RC8 for about three gallons, and I think I can say that: - it extends the time between filter service/cleaning in dry conditions; - it protects the filter foam to get soaked if you hit a puddle in a wet track (believe me: here in Rio de Janeiro it's rainning a LOT lately); - it is easy to clean: just wash it down with dishwashing liquid, let it dry, and use again! The downside is the price, really. If they had a 5 bucks price tag, I'd grab at least 10 of these things!
I do agree that its kinda expensive but its only good for wet tracks, definately not for dry tracks.

Kinda pricey and doesn't work all that great! There are other ways to keep filters clean.... A great idea though...

Kinda expensive but fits well and should really cut down on the amount of junk sticking to the oiled up filter.
