View Full Version : How many Spark plugs during break in

How many spark plugs should I buy if I am getting a new rustler?? I wouldn't be able to order for a while. How many do I need to last me for break-in?

Also, Tower is out of Traxxas glow plugs so what other kind will fit??

i wouldn't try anything other than traxxas glow plugs while you are breaking in a new engines. it could affect the performnc of the engine after break in. i bet ehobbies.com has a few in stock.

Same here I'm on my second quart and I'm still running with the same glow plug I started with!

Yeah, my first glow plug made it through break in and the rest of the first quart. I'm on my second one now having put about 1/2 gallon. The user guide and the guys in my hobby shop said that I was going to go through a bunch of them, but I've had good luck so far. You are supposed to automatically replace it after the break in period just to be careful. If I am hiaving trouble starting, after I check the needles, I replace the plug because they are so cheap.
The McCoys 59 are the best

I've used one plug for more than one gallon. I was running real rich, though.

plugs last as long as they arent mistreated i.e. overheating the engine and running it too lean will destroy the plug and the engine. keep the engine a tad rich especially the trx pro.15. it is a HOT engine. when tuned for racing it is meant to run at bout 300-320 degrees farenheit! keep it rich and check the plugs once in a while. i got a plug that is at least a year old in my nitro 4-tec.
what just went by? that was my nitro 4-tec

Mccoy 59 Glow plugs work great. Also, I would have at least 3 plugs for the first 6 tanks. You probably go through one before the first tank is even half empty.
Ya ain't driving less you broke it
