Default What plugs and what oil to use??

Going to change the spark plugs and do an oil change ready for its outing this summer

tried Selenia Racing 10W-60
http://www.selenia.net/pag_prodotti....id_categoria=8

Now using Speed Master Pro Racing Special 5W-50 (don't ask me to translate the web page, I can't read Japanese either!)
http://www.speedmaster.co.jp/product...peg_merit.html
The car felt so much more responsive with the Speed Master! Maybe 10W-60 is too thick.

Gonna try Motul 300V next, I've heard really good comments

Using Champion plugs, used to have really rough idle, but for the past 2 months the idle had been spot on!

Silkolene 10W50 in mine & as Maxest said it made a huge difference in mine from Castrol RS.
RS is way to thick.
