        Just a little heads-up from my recent experience, even though it`s a little off-topic. Rotax says to only use spark plugs that have a non-removable top tip. I didn`t understand why and the screw-on
        BR8-ES was available at the local AutoZone. I deliberately fouled the threads and screwed the aluminum tips on with pliers.

        Well after 25 hours of flying,tiny sparks must have been occurring in the tiny gap BETWEEN THE THREADS which acted like EDM and eroded material. Two of my screw-on tips had no threads remaining
        and when I pulled the cap up off the plug, the aluminum screw-on stayed captive, up inside the cap.

        THIS COULD CAUSE YOUR ENGINE TO QUIT IN FLIGHT IF WIND JUST HAPPENED TO LIFT ALL FOUR CAPS OFF THE PLUGS. I will ALWAYS use solid tips as ROTAX directs.
