    What glow plug to use on TRX PRO .15

    I'm have been working on my old nitro stampede and have been out of the nitro RC world for some time. My glow plug went out and need a new one and I see that traxxas has added some new plugs since I have last bought a plug. My question is what is the best one for a trx pro .15 using 20% nitro fuel?

    The best plug is usually user preferance.
    All my Pro.15 engines like the O.S. A3 plug with 20% fuel.
    No slipper/tall gearing/power = broken parts.

    Thanks for the reply. I was thinking about going with a traxxas plug, you think the O.S. A3 is better than the traxxas plugs, if so why? Also, for anyone else with a TRX PRO .15, what plugs do you use?

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't believe the A3 plug is a long reach for traxxas engines. The pro.15 requires a long reach plug like the 2.5 and 3.3 otherwise you will be lowing the compression a good bit.

    Yep, the A3 is a short plug.
    I never noticed any loss of performance with the short plug compard to a long reach and the A3 lasted longer and held a better tune than any other plug I tried.

    Traxxas 3232 or 3232X

    They hold up a long time for me.

    Thanks for the help, I guess I'll try the 3232X and see how that goes.
