i might try a, hotter odonnell plug i just get the odonnell plugs because they are a lot cheaper.
OS plugs are hotter even tho they say medium. also just do NOT run nova plugs, they are junk, nova makes some awesome engine and idk why their plugs arent good. ive tried nova plugs and still have a few, i just got mad burning them up if i ran out of fuel or if someone shut it off by the exhaust and not the fly wheel. everyone ive seen run nova plugs have had tons of powers. everyone running standard plugs hear run OD 99 or McCoy 8 or OS 8

agreed on the seat time. i have a .21 GX5R go-tech and that is my race motor. if i am doing anything for tuning my machine or testing i will run that. but if i am just out burning some fuel and putting down some laps for fun i will run my spare GO .25 6 port. just to save my race motor of pointless gallons.

Friends have had great luck with Odonnell 99's. I've never used anything but Nova Rossi though in my current mill. Maybe I've been lucky. I have plugs from a couple years ago.

ive been luckly when, i used the nova plugs i used #5 meduim hot and never had many flameouts at all and lasted for a while.

i looked at the 99 plug, and its not for my % of nitro it says the #77 is for low to meduim fuels .

im just going, to burn the 20% off so i dont have a gallon laying around.

i only have about 2 mouths of racing left anyways.

i was kind of catching up, with the other truggy drivers with the 20% but with the new plug i was running a lot better i was passing guys in the corners and on the straights.
Not 3 turns, 3 hours(or a quarter turn).
