Looks like the 88 replaced the 97... Just a name change to make things line up 99, 88, 77, 66...

I like OD plugs... - both the 97T and the purple medium standard for my MT's etc... The latter are easily my fave standard plug. Cheap and good - can't beat that.

Great plugs! Never had any issues with 77T and 97T - knock on woods.
Fragile? Nope. I'm running 25% nitro. Dont know if 30% is thougher for them?

Incorrect. These are a new design, not just a simple re-numbering....

I had a long talk with Steve last night. Body length, coil shape, coil material, etc....is different. The design is a significant improvement over the previous line.

I should be getting some to test out shortly. I've been running OD plugs for several years.....looking forward to trying out the new product line.

WOULD YOU run this in OS base motor? Did they fix the taper so it fits like the OS plugs in a OS base motor?

I ran OD plugs in my OS motors all the time. Both with the VZ-B, and when I ran the XZ-B. Never had any trouble whatsoever. 95% of the time I used an 87T (sometimes dropped down to a 97T if it was REALLY hot in the summer.

Heck, I still have the VZ-B Speed as my back up motor......I'm never going to get rid of it. Darn thing it like a Timex watch. Just keeps on ticking.....

I'll have no hesitation to put one of these plugs in my OS motor too.

If you've been running OD plugs previously, you'll be fine.

The taper length on the OS plugs is shorter, and can deform the sealing surface on the head button slightly. Using a plug with a longer taper surface may not seal 100% in that case.

Saw these the other day too and just want to know what is the 'Mileage Plug' 267T about?
Where does it fall in heat range?
Does it mean 'mileage' as in; it will last longer?

Default awesome

I love OD plugs. I have just been talking how it's time for OD to make some new plugs. the 97t is pretty good but not nearly as good as the 87t and 99t plugs. that 99t is the best in hard running engines.

I wish Mr. Odonnell would explain things a bit better about the new plugs. Is there a website that discusses the changes the heat ranges etc other than a short sentence on the sales link. It would be cool to hear more.

nice cross reference chart from V1 to V2 plugs. 97T has been working great in my alpha's. Looking forward to trying the 288T out.

Anyone know if odonnel plugs (97t or 77t) will work with orion crf motors? I have used them in my nova but wondering if they fit any other motors, as I have 2 Orion crf (5 ports) alpha852, arrow gtr .21 3port, go motor 5port, and a werks.

Any ideas if they work with those motors? (Concerned with the taper do no rethreading of my head)
