Air Filter Question

I posted this in a TRAXXAS Monster Buggy thread, but I think it applies to any large scale, so...

I just installed the ADA Billet Air Filter on my TRAXXAS Monster Buggy:

Cleaning the filter is not going to be as simple as unscrewing the face plate and removing the three filters, so I am wondering how often I should take it apart to clean the whole thing. It has a metal plate with tiny holes, a fine green filter and a thicker red sponge filter, plus I am also using an Outerwears Airfilter Pre-Filter:

If I did not have to remove the tank and part of the roll cage just to get the filter plate off, I would not worry about it, but I do. Should I remove everything and clean it after every run, clean it every gallon or so, or will the condition of the prefilter be a good enough indication of the interior filters? None of the parts of the filter are designed to use filter oil, so this is kind of new to me. Any opinions?

if your wrappign it in an outwears and its doing its job, not to often. i can put a gallon thru in most cases, and when i pull the outwears its as fresh and clean as a daisey on a dewey
Ha! :clown:

That's what I was hoping to hear! I may put some air filter oil on one of the sponge filters, but I had hoped that the outwears prefilter would work well.
