Always a RB No.6 in RB engines what ever the weather. Last a fair while and seem to be a good all rounder

I have the c6l2g. I have been having some troubles with the rb no6 turbo plugs. I have heard that possibly there are some manufacturing defects this year. I have been advised to run O'donnel 99t or 97t. I have some on order but have not tried them yet. I was getting flame out issues. Here is the thread

LRP #6 is an equivalent and quality plug, as would a 97t. Dunno about the 99.

i have some odonnell 99t plugs coming to try, and for standard plugs, all joking aside, the Traxxas standard non heavy duty medium plugs work great, last a good while, and about 5 bucks

I have used Mcoys for years..the price is just right... the mc 8 and mc 59 plugs worked really well in my non turbo motors. I have had some Rb #6 plugs take a dump right out the pack. Im aiming to get some OD 97t to try out.
