I did tune the engines with the Nova plug first, pulled into the pits and changed for one of the other types by a time. With both alternative plugs the engines were slow and did not reach high rpm. I had to close the HSN quite a bit (Quarter of a turn) but still had not the same power as before. Stopped the experiment there and went back to Nova 7 - Engines ran fine again.
Here is my question: If the engine runs fine with the Nova 7 (read plug after run - color and element spot on) it is certainly not a good idea to lean the engine just to get them to rev properly with a different plug. What else can I do?
Thanks and best regards, Stefan
Try the new Nova C7TGH or C8TGH. The wire is stronger and more durable. BTW Nova upgraded all of their Gold Turbo plugs 3-4 months ago. All of the CxTGx plugs are now better.
Also, the Xceed XPT C7 plug is excellent.
One more thing, we always add a 0.1mm shim to our .21 engines. We run at sea level and the engines run much better with the extra shim. Same power, better fuel economy and the plugs look shiny even after hard runs.
