Definitely rough roads here as well. I think the velcro didn't allow the rubber to "grip" onto the housing, and I have to admit, I think I left it too loose because of all the warnings on here. The filter seemed to have more drag without the velcro, and I did tighten it up more this time. It's just frustrating that we have to be so careful, and yes I know the housings are cheap, but I travel and have no time to get to a dealer for parts when they are open. It's just not the level I expected from K&N, given I've installed 10 of these or so and never had any problems from the others.
