How about OS? I have purchased a bunch of P7s recently, for my nova based engines...

I was told the P7 acts like a R6 and the P8 can be compared with a R7.

And yes, the do work very well.

Have you bought any recently Roelof? I know they used to be great but I have heard rumors that they have gone the way of Nova with the cheaper element.

OS plugs have become my favorite, but I have also heard good things about the O'Donnell plugs (by the way if they are made by Merlin, that is the same company that makes plugs on a regular basis for Traxxas.)

On a side note, has anyone used OS plugs with Picco based engines?

OS turbo plugs have a different taper than Nova Rossi/RB turbo plugs. Installing OS turbo plugs in a cylinder head designed for NR/RB pulgs will create sealing problems. Merlin has a plug that is designed to both applications.

This is true but oddly enough, it mainly seems to be a problem the other way around. I have found that most any plug will seal fine in a Nova motor but Nova plugs WILL leak in an OS. It's strange but true.

Also, I have had really good luck with Picco plugs in the past but haven't tried them in many years.

I will do you one better, does anyone have a link to a chart, or information about where the pipes for on-road, 2015, 2018, etc, make power? Its been quite awhile since I have raced, the only pipe I am familiar with is an 086 series.

If it's still legal where you race, stick with the 086 or 9886. If not, 2015 for mileage, 2052 for a bit more top but a bit less mileage. Also, Sirio 2013 is a good all around pipe with good mileage.
