Top fuel's formulated for the 2.5. I'd say it's the best. Lots of people around here with even more opinions.
As for glow plugs, I use the super-duty Traxxas 3232 plugs. They're a LITTLE more expensive, but worth every penny.

If you are tight on cash It's ok to run fox glow plugs thats what i run but your going to have to make the glow plug wire end bigger or get older glow plug wire from the older cars, they have a clip instead of a spring, I got an older one and it works great.:D
But otherwise I'd go with Traxxas.:cool:

I like to MC9 spark plugs in my rustler, there great. For fuel i would use blue thunder if u cant get top fuel. 10% nitro will give longer engine life and it is a bit cheaper so i would use that.

I think Trinity Monster Horsepower fuel is the best, after I ran a gallon of Traxxas fuel through my engine, I switched over, I noticed a little bit of better performance, I run Real Mccoy MC59 glow plugs, they last a long time at about the same price as Traxxas's glow plugs.

thanks for the help everyone:) i went to my LHS and got traxxas super duty glow plugs and 10% blue thunder fuel. the guy in the shop said that blue thunder is actually exactly the same as traxxas top fuel, just sold under a different brand.
