Glow Plug Advice

I just bought a Jammin X1-CRT that has an Ofna Force .28 motor in it.
What would be a good choice of glow plug for this engine to try until I get a new motor for it.

Thanks!
Chris

Try the MC8's. That engine should love them.

Yes, the OS8 is made for OS engines. However it works very well in alot of other engines.

It's about 2 threads shorter so it will reduce the engine compression slightly. Nothing to worry about at all.

Turbo plug long and short body???

Since this is a glowplug advice thread, I do need some advice here.
When using Novarossi turbo glowplug, there are short and long body types.

When do I need to use which and why?!

Thanks a lot in advance for any feedback!

Is the MC59 working for you? If it is, why change? I not, what's the engine doing to make it not work for you?
