    Glow Plug? 2.5R

    What is the best glow plug to use with the 2.5R?
    Tower is out of stock on quite a few. The only one i can find in stock is the O.S. LC3 Long Reach T-Maxx Glow Plug Hot

    Cheers

    I have had real good results from the LC3...The only complaint I have had is that a couple have gone bad during a hard crash; like flipping endos after a bad landing. I think it is because it burns so hot, the filament is a bit more fragile than the others... If you stick them on a glow igniter, you can see that is glows hotter than most others...

    The Traxxas 3232 HD is hard to beat in the 2.5!
    Can't win if you don't finish!

    I recently started running the mcoy mc 59 and I like it alot. It seems to be lasting longer than my traxxas plugs.

    I had a look at the MC-59 and it said it is for use with low - medium fuel. I use 20% fuel in my REVO

    I use the MC-59. Have gotten two gallons of fuel through it so far. No problems. Running at temps of 230-240 with 20% fuel.

    K&B1L, MC-59, OS #8 and LC3 work good in traxxas engines. I work at hobbytown usa and the best plug probably is the K&B1l or If youn can spend 8 bux on a plg...the OS8.

    Check out the sticky I posted at the top of this forum. It'll probably help you a good bit.
    Six in a row makes it go.

    2 gallons, that is alright, how many gallons do people normally get out of one?
