Anyone know of any drawbacks to using these?

At $5 to $7 per plug with two boys riding 2-strokes, it would pay for itself in one day's racing! We ran all last season on "recycled" plugs with great results. After I blast and regap, I use anti-seize on the threads to prevent galling or seizing since the thread coating also gets blasted off.
Just make sure, with a strong light, that no blasting particles remain wedged between the insulator and and outer wall. That has never been a problem for me, but I'm paranoid about that kind of thing anyway.

I will pick up some anti-seize as well. Thanks for the suggestion.
I'm not sure if they are still on sale, it was about 2 months ago. My buddy bought his on sale 2 months before I did so wait a little while and I'm sure you'll find the deal again.
