Home of Wasabi Air Racing

Elliot Seguin and Jenn Whaley's Formula One class air race team based out of Mojave, California. Pylon racing at the National Championship Air Races in Reno Nevada. Eight airplanes racing head to head around telephone poles in the desert. Mojave is the best place on the planet to build and modify a race plane, and Wasabi is lucky to have the best support in the business.

Spark Plug Caddy

For spark plug organization you basically have two options; a Spark Plug Tray for $50, or something involving holes in cardboard.  I have been doing the cardboard thing for a while and was getting tired of it, but wasn't yet tired enough to drop $50.

So the chassis of this bad boy is a Case Gard Flip-Top Rifle Ammo Box Part# RS-50 (I paid $4 at Karl's Hardware in Rosamond).  I put a piece of 2" x 3/16" thick Felt in the lid to protect the plugs and cut a piece of poster board for the labeling.  Long story short I have about $20 into the two of these and unlike a standard sparkplug tray they have lids and the plugs fit really well.

Also a heads up, these boxes are set up for the M40J plugs that we run for air racing.  They may not work for your plug of choice.  I would recommend finding a local store that has a good selection of these cases and checking them out they are great for all sorts of stuff, and cheap.

What are you working on tonight?
