Stefan I am sure you are right we pulled apart almost all of the failed plugs because they still looked good even on close inspection. Only when we pulled the wire did it come out easily showing that it was detached inside.

I'm embarrassed to say that I paid more than $9 each at my LHS for them ----- Bad investment on my part.

That is kind of high.
US price should be around $6.
So how is the racing up there?
I used to live in Monterey.
RC racing wasn't too big when I was up there.

I go to San Jose for almost all local racing ---- RAMS(Nitro 1/8) and RCCAR(Nitro 1/10, electric)

But I sometimes race at Hobby World, Speedworld, Stockton and Ripon.
All are very good.

As for the plugs I got them last minute in San Jose before I left for the speedline race in Vegas, I'm not crying about the price that's my fault ----- I'm just glad I ran out of them, otherwise I might still be changing motors, carbs, fuel lines, ect.

Does anyone think that Novarossi will stand up and take responsibility?

Dang you drive far to race.

That's what I was asking.
I wanted to know if Novarossi will reimburse us for the bad plugs.
