Default os tr eating plugs

I have a question my OS tr non turbo
has recently begun eating plugs
The motor runs fine, ran straight 30 minute main
after race brought it in and temp was 260 F
But the plug was shot, I have done this recently also
on 2 qualifyers and had the same thing happen, one other
thing is that this seems to only happen when I completely run the
car out of fuel (and no once I relize I am about out of fuel I do not let the car rev up extremely high/lean)
does anyone have any ideas or insight
Thank you for any input
sb

That is exactly what I run A5 plugs and ODonnel 20%. I don't think I run my car as often as you though.

I guess I wasn't much help.

Perhaps your low end is too rich?

I always used the no. 8 plug when I was running 20% through my TR. Now that I'm using 30% I'm using a different plug. You might want to give the no. 8 plug a try.
