Default Rex Plugs

Anyone have any experience with Rex glo plugs? I have never used em before, but my LHS had em so I tried.
I am attempting to break in an STS D5. Am using 15% Wild Cat fuel, have an .3 shim, RD Logics Turbo pipe , and the Rex 7/G05Tf plug. All the above as recommended in the instructions. Also, I have changed plugs once already. My problem is that I simply can not get it to maintain a decent idle. It will run fine for a minute or so, but then the idle goes up and up and it screams. Or, sometimes it simply wont stay running. If I keep the ignitor on it, it stays on, but after a couple seconds after I remove the ignitor, it stalls. Any suggestions, hints, tips, etc are appreciated

Sounds like you're too lean on the bottom.

Rex plugs are good plugs. They're the same as Nova plugs, but cheaper and easier to find. I run them when I can't find Novas.
