Here is a sneak peek at the new .28 from Alpha.

I'm hearing reports from Australia that this thing is a "BEAST"!

I have to agree that it's a very sweet truggy engine. Linear and easy to control but with plenty or POWER. 7mm venturi and P4 plug and it's easily +9min engine in stock form (not that it would need much modding). I've tested with GO2072 which seems to be a nice fit, good power and economy.

Thank you for the update on the engine Poinas! Team TrackStar race report from the weekend. Friday night Jimmy raced his TrackStar Prepped Alpha plus 850 powered Tamiya 801x at Hemet raceway. The car ran flawless all night and the AKA tires worked great! Jimmy was able to take the victory with fellow driver Pres Illog taking second in the pro buggy main at Hemet. We let a few drivers run Jimmy's car and they all were really impressed with the power of the Alpha plus engine as well as the handling of the 801. Saturday we raced at ARC Jimmy's car was good once again and was enroute to victory when a rod end failed. Jimmy ran the Alpha plus 853 green head motor in his main. Sunday we raced with the O.C. circuit at HobbyTown in Corona. We had the TrackStar Girls there to help with passing out fliers and promoting. They were a big help! Jimmy and I both ran RCGT with our TrackStar prepped TB03's. Jimmy TQ'd pro RCGT and I Qualified 4th in RCGT sportsman. Jimmy took off in the main and headed for the next zip code Taking the victory with me taking 3rd in my class. After the races we welcomed all drivers in attendance to come over and get their photos taken with the girls. It was a big hit as all drivers and even a few spectators got their photos taken. Overall, this was a fun weekend of racing. We had fun and got to meet alot of great people as well as visiting with friends. See you soon at a track near you!

We will be picking up our order Monday and shipping Monday. Anything after that will need to go Blue or Red label.

Orders will be shipped today. Thank you all.

Timmie, your engine and clutch set up will be going out as well. Let me know about the other engine as I will have more ready Wednesday.

Kellen, I'll be calling you today for a report on how your Saturday went with the Toro Nero.

Jimmy

Timmie,

You are welcome. That is why we ship with USPS. Much faster and cheaper than the "other guys".

Let me know via text if you need help this weekend.
