Default O'Donnel racing stuff

Does anybody have experience with O'Donnel Racing glowplugs? I'm looking for a brand to go with and O'donnel is available and affordable. Im Thinking of durability in outrigger racing with .45 CMB and 40% nitro. And to come .91 and .21 as well.

Anybody got experience?

People i race with use McCoy MC-9 and it works great, but is expensive so im looking for an alternative.

I have used O'donnell glow plugs for my .18, .21 and .45.

Red Dot: 5 to 20% Nitro , compare to a MC55.

Purple Dot: 20 to 33%, compare to MC8 and MC59 and

Blue Dot: 30 to 65%, compare to MC9.

I run KB1L in everything. They arent as tough as the MC9, as the wire is abit thiner, but they arent badly priced.
