Default Hard to restart????

I have a hyper7 with the 3port 21 motor.I am running cold fusion 30% majic and odonnells purple glow plug. After running it if I shut it off by putting my finger on the exhaust its acts like it doesn't want to start back up. It acts like its flooded. It seems thodo the same thing after it runs out of fuel and I reprime the line. It restarted fine when I was braking it in with 20% fuel. Do I need to run a hotter glow plug with the 30%?

More nitro uses a cold plug. I drive 16% fuel with a medium OS 6 plug. Runs great and no problem at all.
