Default Few nitro questions

Will any Glow Plug work and does Nitro Fuel brand matter much?

How do you know when its time to change a Glow Plug and how long do they normally last?

no not every glo plug will work nitro fuel can very if you want to run 20% 0r 30% gol plugs can last various amounts of time you can check by taking the plug out and putting your igniter and check if every coil lights up and if they are all bright

will they work ok in a .15 Nitro Rustler? Do most plug brands generally last about the same?

IMO, good glow plug brands are: Fox and O.S.

And no, some other brands could be easily broken.. Fox and O.S. are tough..
