Cool Turbo Glow Plug Help?

I have been running non-Turbo R/C engines for 10 years, but I have no-clue about the Turdo plugs. I just purchased a Nova-Rossi .12 RE turbo. Could someone help me out with what Turbo Plug I should run?

I live in Texas (as that was not obvious by my handle) where it is hot real hot. With winter coming is there a different plug to run when it is cold or hot outside?

Thanks for any help!

Default Turbo Glow Plug

Taken right from Nova ROssi's website:

Technical specifications of turbo glowplugs
Turbo glowplug was conceived to give to the engine higher performance and it is available in 8 versions: 4 hot and 4 cold.You find here with a description schedule that gives to the drivers the possibility to choose the suitable glowplug according to the situation he is operating.

Type Features Nitro % Increase performance Outside Temp .
C.5 TC Hot with hot filament 10-20% + 10% from 5 to 10
C.6 TC Hot with avg filament 10-20% + 8% from 5 to 20
C.7 TC Hot with cold filament 20-30% + 6% More than 20
C.8 TC Hot with very cold filament 20-30% + 5% More than 20
C.5 TF Cold with hot filament 20-30% + 15% from 10 to 20
C.6 TF Cold with average filament 20-30% + 13% More than 20
C.7 TF Cold with cold filament More than 20% + 12% More than 20
C.8 TF Cold with very cold filament More than 20% + 10% More than 30

Merits and failings of turbo glowplugs
Hot glowplug guarantees a better adjusting of the engine at low RPM while the cold glowplug gives a better performance at high RPM. If you have a cold glowplug on your engine and have difficultes to keep it regular at low RPM, we advise you to make the base speed a little higher. In case the engine goes out again, we advise you to replace the above mentioned glowplug with a cold one; these difficulties in the carburation aren't due to a bad running-in of the engine but to anomalous climatic and meteorological conditions (see high degree of humidity, altitude, low pressure, etc...).
During the installation of a turbo glowplug on the under head verify that no dust or any other material come inside because they could make precarious the seal of this glowplug during the compression.
