I'm told that these unconventional Brisk plugs in conjunction with a set of Multi-fire plug wires made 36 more HP on a sealed crate chevy engine commonly used in circle track racing.
All the local racers are running these wires made in Springfield Illinois. He is an old Sprint car racer
Brisk plugs I believe were made for Lamborghini.

I have not tried them myself..

interesting plugs and wires but that website sucks for details. Im sticking with my usual combo of Ultra 40 wires and NGK V power plugs for now

I should put them on my lawnmower. With another 36 HP I could mow 10 acres per hour.

The website for the wires is completely useless with no technical information whatsoever, the website for the plugs has way to much mostly useless information.

I would like to see the actual back to back dyno comparison, maybe this is a job for engine masters. I've seen lots of claims for various high tech plugs and leads over the years but never seen actual verifiable proof that they work any better than anything else on the market.
I've finally given up drinking for good...........now I only drink for evil.

We actually run brisk plugs on our quarter midgets per usac rules. They do actually make more power when I pick my motors up I’ll find out the difference power wise the motors are run on a dyno . It’s not a huge power gain but every tiny bit helps.

Yeah, I'm skeptical as well; a 36 HP gain is a lot, even if you start with 600 HP.  Not that you can't invent a better spark plug, but I'd think someone like NGK would find "magic" first.  If they are legit, there'd be independent testing presented.  If they're new, I'm sure it'll be out soon from a third party.

The 36 HP referenced is on a sealed crate chevy that probably makes 400 hp. It may make a difference on a Chevy more than a Rambler engine because of the plug angle in the chamber. I dont know.
I will be testing a few things on my Spirit this year hopefully, since I'm kinda starting over with it. 
My baseline is a small header/small intake/carb combo. I'll try the wires and plugs at some point also.

And to make it clear. Neither company has claimed the 36 HP. This was independent testing done by an individual that runs a crate late model. He is from N. Carolina and been around dirt racing for many years and worked for a few big names in nascar.

The description of the spark plug certainly reads like it's coming straight from an 1880's con man selling snake oil.

"UNIQUE SPARK PLUG PRODUCED Patented Laser Technology Unique igniter auxiliary electrode at the tip of the insulator formed using the patented technology of laser deposition"

There you have it patented LASER technology, "Obi-Wan, you're my only hope!"

The only thing I can think of that may increase a spark plugs efficiency is by the plug producing an electron cloud that radiates completely from the center electrode to the circular ground (where the threads are) of the plug, encompassing the entire area with an extreme amount of spark energy in the form of a cloud almost. I would imagine that would promote more air/fuel mixture being burned, example, no waste. Doesn't E-3 or something like that claim this same feature with their multi ground point encircling the center electrode?

Regardless, if it's true why isn't everyone in racing using them? Poor marketing?
