What Our Customers Say About ODonnell Glow Plugs

On-Road Cars

“My first time running the new ODonnell V2 288t glow plug in my Reds Racing M3T WC, I noticed that right off the bat my engine had an increase in bottom end power and it sounded healthier. I was able to get more power and an increase in run time out of my motor without it taking a toll on the plug. The plug also helped make tuning the motor easier, because it was more consistent. I ran the V2 299t in my Reds M7T and at one point my car even ran away full speed into a wall and the plug was still in perfect shape after the incident. I was able to use it for the rest of my race weekend without any issue. With excellent performance and durability I have chosen to make ODonnell my plug of choice for my racing season.”

“The new 299T glow plug works great! Tunes well, more power, and 30-45 seconds of extra run time.”

Chris Verano, Team Mugen, Los Angeles California

“The new V2 glow plugs are awesome for the 1/8 scale on-road and sedan. I have been using them since their introduction and have been very happy with their performance. Throttle response and fuel mileage instantly got better. My average has been about an extra 30 seconds of run time, some have gotten more. Can’t say enough good things about them.”

Brian Thomas, California

“I used ODonnell plugs in my 1/10 MTX-5 Nitro TC When I replace my existing plug with the new O’Donnell V2 version, the engine produced much more power the car jumps off the starting line and more consistent during re-filling pit stops. With its excellent performance and durability, I have chosen to make O’Donnell V-2 my plug of choice for my racing season.”

Wong Wai Kei, Team Mugen/Hong Kong

“I have been racing R/C cars since 1977. I just ran the 2013 ROAR 1/8 On-Road nationals in California. I tried the new ODonnell V-2 plug (299T) and the new Punch fuel the combination helped TQ and win the ROAR nationals. I have been using ODonnell products for years, By far the new V-2 plug is the best plug Steve has made and the new Punch fuel is the best fuel I have ever used. If you don’t try these new products you’re missing out.”

Dana Smeltzer, 2013 1/8th On-Road ROAR National Champion


“I have been using O’DONNELL PLUGS for several years now. The performance has surpassed any glow plug I have ever used. Recently these plugs have helped me set two world records”

Stu Barr Crapshooter Boats Indianapolis, IN

“I have used O’Donnell 99T and 97T cone-lock plugs exclusively in my engines for the last 7 years. I find the power and throttling of my engines to be the best with these plugs, but very important for a racer like me, I like the consistency. Every Plug works and the seal never ever leaks or blows out”

Dave Marles, PMB England

“R&D and QC are paramount for any manufacturer and O’Donnell is on top of their game. The O’Donnell line of glow plugs are industry changers, meticulously thought out and tested. The quality is well beyond any other in the hobby and it shows. The O’Donnell line of glow plugs are simply the best I have ever run and are one of the reasons my boats perform the way they do”

Buckshot Shackelford

“I have tried all brands of glow plugs, none make the power and hold up to the stress of high nitro boat engines better than the O’Donnell plugs. The new V2 plugs are even better, and the new packaging is killer too. O’Donnell is the only plug I trust…”

Martin Truex Jr.

“After many years of racing I think I have tried just about every brand of glow plug ever manufactured and I still continue to look for better quality and price.
So when searching the web recently I came across the new O’Donnell V2 style of plug, I immediately thought, why not give them a try. Well much to my surprise they really lit my engines up and could hear the difference immediately. As more and more runs followed and a lot of fuel got consumed the plugs just kept coming back in perfect condition.”

“I would like to congratulate you on producing plugs of magnificent quality and superior performance”

Holborow Racing Team Australia

“When I switched to the O’Donnell glow plugs, the first thing I noticed was how much better the engines seem to idle. Even before turning to the new plug, the idle was immediately smooth and consistent. These plugs also seem to provide a little bit of extra snap on the bottom to midrange of the engine, and I can say that I actually gained run time with these plugs! Almost 30 seconds a tank in back-to-back testing!”
