    honestly i tossed the blue wire, and bought one of these. they even test your glo plug. also by tossing the blue wire saves more battery for the starter. peace

    I put a piece of heat shrink about 1.5" long on the wire. It makes it stiffer, so you do not need pliers to plug it in. also protects it some around the top of the head.

    Before I went to the glow igniter I went down to the hobby store and bought some K&S copper tube just big enough so the small end of the spring would fit inside (sorry I don't remember what size it was) soldered the spring in and cut it just long enough to clear the head then soldered the blue wire to the other end then covered it all with heat shrink tube.
    I wanted to put a really cool signature but I ran

    DId you forget to warn any EZ start user they better know how to tune? If not they will suffer blisters between the fingers?

    Yup, go with a glow ignitor and pull start, when you have your tune down there will be less to carry, your TMAXX will be lighter and more air flow around the engine when running... Lot's of plus's there..

    Now there's another thing you can do to protect the Blue wire...

    Some models you can install an aftermarket wing, if you flip the blue wire AND the engine will not get ripped up... Also you have better in air handling as well as a nice handle... Multi Purpose..

    Another trick is to get zip ties and put them on the top of the cooling head, push the blue wire below them and they will be protected as well.

    Lastly, heat shrink tubing. Put a few sleeves of it over the blue wire shrinking them one at a time to act as a protective coating... As that get's torn up you just replace them.
