Default New U.S. distributer for alpha engines???

Hey all: I read on bigsquid rc that rc pro products will be the new u.s. importer for alpha nitro engines. I thought team orion was offering the alpha engine line so what gives? Can someone clear this up. Thanks

Im not 100% but according to my info the Alpha that big squid or what ever is selling - is not the orion branded engines - its a company called Alpha

http://www.alpha-rc.com/

Looks like the Orion

Already an ALPHA thread here on the forum.

ALPHA is their own company and manufactured engine.

It's only similar in that the F850 has a red cooling head. Other than that, completely different.

Look here; TRACK STAR RACER SERVICES NOW OPEN (SoCal)

It's a bit sad seeing a company doing this type of thing, a bit of a rip-off using the Alpha name when it is already used by another company.

Probably it's not an innocent choice either...
