the main thing with these JP's is they need a gallon to break in....seriously once they hit that magic number bamm it's a whole different beast. My buddies first one hit it during a main and wow did it sound different, same temp just MORE everything.

also nova 6 plug seems to be bad, we run 5 or 7 or the nova ultra 6

we had major flame issues until that change

You guys are using the 5 or the 7 in both the eagle and first line?

No. 5 plug runs really good with the Firstline engine on 16% to 20% fuel.

i've changed to grp plugs because of the bad quality of the nova plugs recently. The nova plugs fall apart in no time, and with the grp plugs i experienced a higher top speed.
But i will give a 5 and 7 a try, normally i always run a 6.

If you are using 30% then #6 is the way to go, we have been using Ninja #6 plug with excellent results.

We shimmed it to a total of 0.60mm (so additional 0.30mm) on sea level with Maxy 30%.
