Still don't know what hotter means when talking about spark plugs. Does that just mean that it actually gets hotter?
Simple terms. It is the plugs ability to shed or retain heat. Hotter means it sheds heat more slowly and colder more quickly. It needs to be able to retain some heat in order to "self clean" so the plugs don't foul up under normal operation. Too cold of a plug will foul up more easily. Too hot will cause preignition.

Ok. Thank you for the explanation.
