    I’ve seen “racing “spark plugs on several kart shops pages.  I’m referring to the plugs that have a very short insulator and require a special boot.  They cost about $45 compared to a typical plug of $9.   Anyone out there know the science why these are worth 5’x the price?  Anyone have actual experience? They look cool….maybe they are a fashion statement??

    I remember a brisk plug that was like that. Really expensive and then needed an even more expensive boot. Made zero difference when we put it in

    There’s a nascar dad born every minute and they have a special spark plug for them.

    On a Honda it’s for elbow clearance, so you don’t wreck your plug, boot, elbow or race.
