I've been using Super Tigre medium and OS A8 with good success.

You need more info. Glow plug selection depends on many factors to give you the best performance. If you are running high nitro you may want a colder plug , less nitro = hotter plug. Merlin plugs has a wide selection. here is a good link http://www.blueangels.rchomepage.com/glow_plug_info.htm

The O.S. No. 8 plug will work well with 10% nitro fuel on the TT Pro .46 engine. A hot Merlin plug should work fine for the .40 LA as well.

I usually go with the Fox RC Long glow plug as a good default plug for most 2-stroke engines.
