Hi I have bought a picco p9 I just need to figure and find a pipe to match, there are so many pipe out there. Also does anyone now what the best plug is for the p9.
What does the temp ranges do in plugs no one has ever told me this as I am new to nitro coming from electric.

Thanks

You can use a number 7 or 8 plug. That is where you want to be. I would not recommend using anything lower then this. The temp range in short is how "hot" the plug is. There are also cold and hot versions. They get the heat ranges 2 ways how far in the body the element is as well as how thick the wire is for the element. They body also can have a larger diameter hole were the element is as well. You will be fine with any 7 or 8 cold or hot. The Picco's like to run hot plugs though.

To be on the full save side you could also use Sirio or IDM plugs, they are a bit less sensitive on temperature.
