Default CP-02 turbo plugs, anyone have anything to say about em

I have a Picco/JL .12 red dot and just thumbing through my nitro stuff, came up on a couple of RB CP-02 plugs. I havent started to tune the motor yet and wanted to know if these plugs are any good? Thanks.

You can only use PICCO plugs on the JL Red Dot engine.

Word? You can only use em or they are the ones that work best? This is the first time I've heard that you one can only use one specific type of plug for a certain type of engine. Ok. How about other manufacturers? Mccoy for instance?

The story is simple. place an original JL/Picco plug beside a CP02 plug and notice the difference between the conical endtips.
You will see the CP02 plug has longer thread.

Because of that you can inmagine you have to use some force to get the CP02 plug fit correctly. When you do that you will damage the combustion chamber and Picco plugs will not fit anymore. Well... they will fit but the damaged conical part will give a leak.

Yes, you can use the CP02 plug but when changing back to the original Picco pluge you have to get a new combustion chamber.

Sorry, no other plug will fit, the R&B CP02 plug is made by Novarossi and is the same as JP, REX, TOP etc.

Heading to my LHS. If they dont have the plugs, I will order from you. I have seen your posts around and have viewed your website b4. You are consistant with your posts and will get my business if they dont have what I need.
