Nitro % is a factor in engine temps. Lower should run cooler. The glow plug can play an important role, too. Many people run a plug in winter that is hotter than the plug they run in summer.

Cooler plugs have fewer loops in the coil and have thicker coils. Hotter plugs have a tighter coil and a thinner wire.

If you have a hot plug and high nitro, you could raise engine temps...but so could running lean, and not much can help that other than a carb adjustment.

I found that my engine ran cooler with 30% than 25% both were made by the same company. I don't know why you are running so hot but i would recomend richening your engine some more, do you really want to killl your engine for a little bit more performance?
