Default RB T10 - Glow plugs

Which plugs are compatible with RB engines? Im running an RB #6 in it now but I want to go down to a 5, so instead of getting another set of RBs or Nova, would Dynamite or O.S plugs fit well enough not to screw things up or leak?
Thanks guys!

Both will work but I wouldn't recommend them. Sirio/Werks plugs are great and will fit fine in that motor.

Sirio or Werks plugs will fit fine? Great, I just want something cheaper than the RB or Nova plugs, they cost around 10-12 each with the cheapest RB being 9.75, but they only have 1 left atm. Might just wait out a little until they restock, but otherwise Werks #5 seem to be great - ill get them if RBs don't stock up soon.

The problem with trying to save money on plugs is that the cheap ones don't usually hold up well. I would rather pay 15 bucks for an old GRP ninja plug that will last for a gallon than 5 on a plug that lasts 1-2 tanks. That's why I love the Sirio/Werks/etc. plugs. Not super expensive, run great and last longer than anything short of the GRP Ninja.

Well I would think that RB plugs are good. Heck I still have the plug from break-in and it still works great! The next plug I put in (same plug, just new) died a few tanks after use! They seem to be great, Im just after one that is a little cheaper than RB, but still has good quality like Werks, OS etc.

You should be running a No 7 RB plug in your T10......

No 7? Definitely not, im sure I would have to run a 5 where I normally go, and a 6 when I run at another track. Just need to get it repinched because I dont think I broke it in correctly.

Well since this has pretty much come back from the grave, Im not running the RB for now until I either:
A) get it repinched or
B) get a new P/S set

I will still use the #6 to break it in, and if it gets too hot then I will use either a Nova 6 (colder version) or 7 to finish it off.
Ohh yeah, thanks for the +1's, +1000's and the like! Really funny, but it depends on the track, the temps and what fuel you run.

I normally run a short/tight low traction track, so the 6 was perfect from what I can remember. Didnt try a 7 or 8 since I still had 6's at hand.

DJ, the two people that responded to you are former Australian champions and probably the two most experienced RB on road users in Aust. What ever they say obviously works
