This is one Novarossi #5 short body Turbo glow plug. This is a hot glow plug intended for use in .21 race engines with high nitro content fuels. This plug works great in the new O.S. VZB V-Spec race engine which needs a hot Turbo plug. It is also the plug of choice for the Novarossi 421B race engine.
The Novarossi line of "Turbo"glow plugs are available in the following variations:
- #5TC/TF - Hot glow filament plug
- #6TC/TF - Medium filament glow plug
- #7TC/TF - Cold filament glow plug
- #8TC/TF - Very cold filament glow plug
difference between the TC (Long Body) and TF (Short Body) glow plugs is
based on the size of the hole that glow plug filament is located in.
The Long Body plugs have a slightly larger hole which results in a
slightly hotter glow plug element. However there is not a lot of
difference between a TC and TF glow plug and you can use them
