I have tried a a3, a8, k&b with idle bar and have not got the success I have with the fox plug. I am running this engine inverted and I could not for the life of me get this engine to idle for more then 30 secs. I have a fuel value and 2 loops in the fuel line that go above the fuel tank. Still had no success. I put the fox plug in and bam! it idled for 3 mins then quit. I didn't change and setting on the high or low needle valves, but maybe this was just my experience. I have recently taken out this engine and put it on a stand and it ran great with the provided plug, but if you invert it! ohhhh watch out headach after headach.

Hope this helps.
It's A Great Day For Flying!
