Default NITRO FUEL & GLOW PLUGS

Hi I was wondering if someone can shed some light on a couple of things for me.

1. With the nitro fuel 10% 15% 20% 25% what is the differance I know it is the amount of nitro, but what does it do in performance or is there any I am not really sure what the different % do.

2. Can someone explain what does the cold, medium and hot plugs do to a motor I am not sure which ones to run.

Thanks

the % is the nitro,alot of racers are starting to go with lower % do to cost. with a lower % you can make a beter run time and not lose performance just make sure you shim the head to the correct % of fuel you use. the glow plug are the same match the plug and % and air temp a med plug will work.look at this it will help you under stand it

More nitro% = more torque

higher Nitro % = more bottom end torque

Why does the fuel filter go between the tank and the pipe as the picture attached , wouldn't it go between the tank and motor?

Can someone please explain.

Thanks

That is no filter but just a simple chamber. It has some volume to hold pressure and make it more constant. With a full fueltank and without chamber some engines have some problems beacause the pressure (and so the fuel to the engine) is not constant.

the one in pic is Mugen pressure chamber..it evens out the pressure as the motor goes faster and slower...holds a small amount of pressure...good for a little better fuel mileage also..
