you know what i mean ? my wording may be stupidly hard to understand.
hotter plugs have a thinner element and they get red hot, so when the motors have alot of compression and the plug is to hot they will push the element up inside! the only time you use a hotter plug is when the compression gets really low! you should always tune with a cold plug when running 20-30 nitro and higher cause the hotter the plug the quicker it cools of when splashed with fuel and hot plugs don't last as long as a colder plug
the only #6 plug they have is a p6 which is a med. temp turbo plug and i don't believe your motor uses a turbo plug
