I am just forwarding this to Rctech forums as people from the YokomoUSA forums are not replying, and as i know nothing about nitro cars i thought i would get answered here
Thanks for the help.

I run 10% nitro with a #8 OS glow plug (have tried 25% to)breakin was OK today I am installing a clunk tank above the carb (see if that helps)or maybe an on-board glow igniter.
I am an RC pilot fixed-wing/helicopters. I have a reputation that includes "he never has a dead stick" I know my nitro engines but this one is very upsetting. Is there any known problems with this line of .12's
OK so I am replying to my own messages now. I have found by taking apart my engine the glowplug is about halfway down the hole. Can someone tell me if this is normal. Or should the glowplug be flush with the bottom of the head.
