Default what glow plug/fuel combo for v-spec

What glow plug (medium, hot, ultra hot, etc.) would you recommend for the .21 v-spec and what fuel (nitro %) would you recommend for that plug. Also will I need to use the extra head shim that comes with the engine. Thanks.

Plug depends upon the fuel you use. If the engine's detonating, then you can go to a colder plug, or add a cylinder head gasket to lower the compression. We can't give you an "either-or". It all depends upon how you've chosen to run the engine.
