So they would fit both .12 and .21 Ninja motors, correct?

The taper of the Nova Rossi glow plug and the Ninja/Grp plugs are the same, and yes it will fit both .12 / .21 Ninja and Nova Rossi engines as well, just have to select the correct heat range (glow plugs).

It did burn down and GRP is just making their tires and other stuff now. However, Shepis or Boss or Reds or whoever it is, is making motors that appear to just be GRP's and now Maxpower has a GRP plug.
