What kind of fuel and glow plugs do you recommend using in the TRX engine?
We definitely recommend using Traxxas glow plugs #3230, #3232, or #3232X and Traxxas Top Fuel Power Plus, either 10%, 20% or 33% Nitromethane content. The TRX engines run at a higher, performance-level temperature than most other model engines. Because of this, Traxxas had a fuel specially blended with high-quality castor and synthetic oils specifically for the TRX engines. It is the only fuel that guarantees the longest life and best performance from your engine. The Traxxas glow plugs are also designed specifically to be used in the TRX engines. They have a higher heat range to allow your engine to operate at its highest level of performance.
