The thickness of the glow wire will make the difference between a HOT, MEDIUM or COLD.

It would be nice if all manufacturers are giving the wire thickness as a reference number.

For engines with a nitro percentage below 10% a HOT plug will do OK when the outside temp is 15/20 degrees Celsius.

For engines with a nitro percentage between 10 and 25% a MEDIUM or COLD plug will do OK when the outside temp is 15/20 degrees Celsius.

For engines with a nitro percentage above 30%  a COLD plug will do OK when the outside temp is 15/20 degrees Celsius.

A hotter plug with a thinner glow wire is less durable with high nitro percentages then the colder plug with a thicker wire.

A hotter plug will give better idling and bottom power and A colder plug will give better top speed and durability.

All 3 types of glow plugs will work for the Redcat Racing Nitro engines

(running 20% nitro fuel it is recommended to use Medium glow plugs)
