Insulating between what and what? High temp and High temp?

The threads conduct heat the same

the bottom surface of the spark plug conducts heat from the plug, into the head through the crush washer

the copper terminal conducts heat the same whether it has a washer against it or not

the head conducts heat the same into the copper.

the copper seals to the head

the washer seals to the head

the washer seals to the copper

its exactly the same, i'm just fucking lazy and snce i'm going to take the thing off after 2 or 3 test runs, and i want to use my same spark plug, i don't bother taking the washer off. I also re-use crush gaskets. holy shit tell the tuning police that i'm 'doing it wrong'

you seized at less than 400 degrees because you don't know how to tune. CHT tells you the temp of your cylinder head, you seize because your piston gets too hot and expands in the bore, the two temperatures are only circumstantially similar.

Up until last summer i never seized anything ever. I've built dozens and dozens of engines, all sorts of different wacky shit and up until 2 years ago never even ran a CHT...

people tuned 2 stroke engines for 70 years before anyone ever heard of a trail tech. CHT is a stupid tool that tells you useless garbage stupid data and everyone thinks it came out of Jesus' vag or something.
