Go to Ebay, and type in traxxas in the search box you will find lots of stuff. The K&N filters run between $18 and $25.

I have Motor Savers on my Nitro Sport and Nitro 4tec and they work great. Easy to maintain and stay on secure with a nylon tie wrap.

I bought one of those K&N filters on ebay and can tell you from experience save your money unless you are just going to keep your truck on a shelf for show. They don't stay and are so round up top they usually allow little or no room to get under it even if you wanted to put a zip tie on it. Not to mention it sits right up against the head and the high end needle adjuster. The only way I could get it to stay on and give me some head clearance is to use a piece of silicon tubing from my aquarium to extend the base and use two zip ties to hold it in place. Go with the motor saver with the extened base. It works better than any filter I've seen and best of all it stays where you put it and still can be pulled off to put a few drops of after run in the carb w/o cutting zips every time. Not to mention 1/2 the price.

If you do not use a big block engine it will not work,It will definatly not work on the trx pro,Yeah you can slide it on but it wont work rightit will just fall off like the other guys said .I use the K&N on my OS Rx.15 it is rear exhaust and it is awsome.

I got one for my OS motor and it fits very tight, but it's pretty loose on my brothers TRX .15 PRO

The motor saver filter is awesome. Do some homework on it at www.rcfilter.com. (http://www.rcfilter.com.) The cost is $12-$15 depending on your lhs.

a k&n valve cover breather will work. they can be ordered with either a black or chrome top. you'll want one for a 3/8inch opening. the pro-15 carb is just slightly bigger than 3/8inch so you'll get a nice, tight fit. you can get one from an auto parts store or from summitracing.com

I have one on my RB x12 and it looks and works great. However, it has a much much larger carb on it, so the fit is snug.
If you buy one of these dont go to ebay. Your getting ripped off. They are 10 bucks at ace hobbies for the chrome top and like a buck less for the rubber top.
