Default losi air filter pre-filter

Just getting into 1/5 scale got a losi 5t after xmas with the c/y 29cc motor from horizon hobby and purchased the air filter pre-filter but it no way comes close to fitting. I have been communicating with horizon hobby about their product and the fact that it does not fit the air filter housing. The air filter housing is 5.5 x 5.5 x 1.5 inches and horizon hobby sells a pre filter #los356000 that is supposed to fit but it only measures 5 x 4.5 x1.5 inches. At 30.00 this is not acceptable. I have talked to outwears and they supposedly make a pre-filter and I am talking to them now to see if it fits before spending 22.00 for their product. Has anyone come across this issue yet.

Outerwears products fit and honestly, I wouldn't use any other product unless it is made by them and rebranded by someone else.. With their prefilter the stock filter doesn't need upgrading.

Do you have the square or round airfliter. Im pretty sure the horizion prefliter is an outerware rebranded for losi. I have run both and didnt notice a differnce other then matieral that the logo is printed on. I run the stock round filter with the dt1 2stage outter filter. I did switch out the stock plastic back plate for the aluminum one. Forgot who makes them but ddm sells them.

Talked with nick at Outerwears and guess what they make their pre-filter based on hh[losi] measurements and it wont fit.Sent pictures to nick and he was surprised was going to talk with his contact at hh

The flat part on the air filter that has the losi logo also has one on the perfilter and it printed on a non mesh fabric unlike the outerwares which is all the breathable mesh type fabric.

Not to dig up an old thread, but I'm in the same predicament. MY understanding is that the Losi-branded Outerwears square cover for the Stock RTR air filter is to be run without the plastic housing around the air filter. I can say, after having just cleaned my filter from its first few parking lot / grassy field runs that I'm not sure I trust it without at least the stock face plate in place. First, I had a lot of grass under the Outerwears, and while these things can not make it through the filter elements, I can imagine that they could make their way around the inside of the cover and get sucked into the gaping hole created where the stock plastic faceplate would otherwise be. I'm not sure I have much confidence in this set up. Why didn't they size it so the plastic faceplate could at least be used?
