What do you use, and how much do you pay?


Does your selection effect what fuel to use?

25% Nitro and OS A5 Plugs.


I pay $16.39US for 3 (call it $7.75 Aussie each). I think RMS in Perth sells plugs rather cheap.

SG,


I throw 3 in to every 2nd order with Tower to save on the postage - just checked my tool box - have 8 spare A5's sitting in there at the moment - never can have too many...

Chris.

Whoa.... just checked the Radio Model Supplies website - they have OS A5 glowplugs on special for $5.95... think mysparesmay have just doubled in numbers.... The cheapest I have ever gotten these from Tower is about $7.00 when the exchange rate was good.


They don't have a price on #8's, but with this special I don't think they would be even close. Normally they are slightly cheaper... but $5.95 for A5's - Holy Crap!


Postage is a bit rude... that's the only downside - $9.95 normal, $12.95 overnight (and insured - ask KyoshoKev). Youneed someone inPerth to pick 'em up and post 'em over.

Chris

OS Plugs run:
<UL>
<LI>A3 - Hot</LI>
<LI>#8 - Warm</LI>
<LI>A5 - Cool</LI>
<LI>R5 - Cold</LI>[/list]





Don't know if the "Hot", "Cold" terms are right, but that is the order.

Chris
