The IDM #7 plug is a medium, And is what i recomend for the .21, The #6 Is a little hotter and more suited for the .12!

The T7 glowplug from IDM is a hot number 7. We only offer the plugs in the hot range of the heat index. No cold or hot number 7. The number 7 is warmer then the 8 but it is on the coldest side of the range. I hope that this is clear. The index is the same 5 being the hottest and then 8 being the coldest. Just not cold or hot in the same range.

Impressive! I recall the race leader (Rossi Engine) with a lap on the field before battery
issues set in and he was out. Then 2nd place took over (Rossi Engine) the lead and was
a lap on you until 6 minutes remaining when his belt went out. They're all great Engines!

I guess that's a GOOD MARGIN / a win is a win! Congrats!

Interesting! You mean he won only because of the race leaders have problems?

Im not going to get in a argument over this, But you can check out the times and results on Rc scoring pro. check under the south west series results. I started 2 laps behind the feild. My car loaded up before the tone went off and i had to be restarted from pit lane. Before either of the other cars had any problems i made up most of the time, Like i said Check the Results, In fact i will find a link! I guess being the only one to run 20 laps in the qualifiers was a fluke too!

No man, he is just saying how fast he is with his new halfprice engines and that I guess that he would have won anyhow being that he was the onlyone to go twenty laps in qualifiers.As for myself, I guess that I have never lost a race either,,,, I just ran out of time to win.LOl. Sounds like a true legend in his own mind in the making.

I was marshaling the above DISCUSSED race and I am here to tell you that it was a lot of fun to watch all three of these drivers race each other. Three different manufactured cars with anyone one of them capable of winning. It was clean racing between all three as well as the other three other drivers that were in this main. I can't wait for the Region 9 Championships later this month to see these guys gear it up again!!!!

See you then,
Roger

Thanks

WRONG GLOW PLUG!
You are using too cold of a plug, you should only be using a #6 plug on either IDM T6 or a PICCO P6TC, the T7 plug is more suited for a .21 IDM engine.

All the IDM and also the Picco engines that are the track engines are 7 port. The EVO3 will also be a 7 port as well.
