Default glow plug for Picco .26 and Hyper .21??

Any suggestions for a glow plug for my Picco .26? What about for my Hyper .21 8 port?

The last plug I used was an ODonnell ODO100 monster truck plug, but I thought I'd try an OS plug or McCoy plug this time around. Easier to find at the LHS and online than the ODonnell plugs. Any suggestions on brand and type? Thanks!

I ran an OS 8 in my hyper 21, it runs great on both 20 and 30% nitro. A McCoy 8 will give similar results as well though. I would just pick up some McCoy 8's and run those, they work well in just about anything, plus they are way cheaper than OS 8's.

Thanks for the advice, WheelNut! The MC-8 is what I'm leaning towards.

Anyone else want to give some input?

Default plug

Ive been using OS5's in my hyper and dont seem to have any real problems. But if the weather gets real hot and a high humidity I run durartrax gold. They seem to handle the hotter weather better and keep my engine running a lot cooler, which gives it more power as well. Im running 20% BOOST race fuel. The golds dont seem to burn out as quick either...............
