This is one Novarossi #6 long body "Ultra" Turbo glow plug. This is a medium glow plug intended for use in .21 race engines with high nitro content fuels.

The "Ultra" line of plugs from Novarossi are different from regular plugs in that the hole where the filament is located is slightly larger in diameter, and the glow plug element has a special coating. The new coating is intended to make the plug be more durable, while the larger diameter hole is designed to improve the idle and throttle response of the 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

The 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 interchangeably.

Novarossi "Turbo" #6 Long Body Ultra Glow Plug (Medium)
I have been running this plug off and on for about a year now. It's a good plug but a bit too cold for break in of the engine. It works great in plus-4 and btt engines but I would be careful when the outside temp goes above 80 degrees they tend to burn up quicker in those temps. In hotter temps I usually switch to c7tgc plugs especially in p5's. It really depends on the engine. If you burn one of these up fairly quickly try the c7tgc plugs. It is important to know that these plugs are not for all engines and all temps. Most would tell you that and it's just not true.

Novarossi "Turbo" #6 Long Body Ultra Glow Plug (Medium)
I tried this plug from the recommendation of Mike's Hobby in Porter, TX. The issue I was having was my C6 would not idle, unless the low speed needle was extemely lean. Also the motor would mysteriosly die when burping the throttle. If you left the exiter on, it would be just fine. I intended to be a #5 plug to see if this would correct the problem. I put the #6 Ultra plug in and problems went away. I ended up richening the low speed to where it should be, and the motor idle just fine and wouldn't die whenever burping the throttle. This plug is definitely different and works like a charm.

I run this plug in all of my Novarossi engines, up here in the Pacific NW we don't get extreme temps most of the time so it works year round.
