    3.3 runs good with glow ignitor attached

    the engine runs pretty good with the ignitor attached, but when I take the ignitor off the engine loses power and doesn't respond as quickly. I'm running 10% nitro

    I'm using a traxxas 3232 plug now. The previous plug was the stock plug so probably 3232 or 3232X

    Sounds like your too rich, with the ignitor on there's enough juice to keep the plug from getting fouled up with fuel, but when you are removing the ignitor, the amount of fuel is drowning your plug. At least that's what it sounds like.

    What does the plug look like when you pull it?
