There are two types of glow plugs, standered and turbo. It will depend on the motor you use, if it is a stander ed motor or if it has a turbo head. You will know. The turbo head motor uses a tapered style plug (turbo) and the stander ed uses a brass or copper O ring.

It shouldn't effect it any. You may need to go with a slightly cooler plug though because of the different terrain. But, I may be wrong.

There are no offroad or onroad plugs. It's either conical or turbo.
