what makes them hard to break in?

I have broken in 2 10th scale engines before, they were easy and started fairly quick.

Do these ones take a while to start or what?

The overly ridiculous amount of metal pinch novarossi builds their engines with is what makes it a pain. They break in fine, but they need a lot of fuel to break in completely.

RB engines are the same as they are made by novarossi(most of them).

Actually the Alpha engines look pretty darn good. I would just prefer an Italian or Japanese made engine quality wise.

I actually don't know where the best place to buy them is. I think Carlton carries them with RC Pro Products.

Alpha Testing pageRC Pro SeriesRC Pro ProductsRC Pro Products ShopRC Pro Products BlogNewsZ852F850Contact.Home_PageIt seems we are receiving numerous email from outside the US asking about engines. RC Pro Products is the Distributor for Alpha Plus in the US. Alpha Plus has their different distributors for different countries and areas. These distributors are not allowed to sell outside their area. Please refer to the Alpha Plus website for the distributor in your part of the world. http://www.alpha-rc.com/distributor.asp?tp=distributor
We also have gotten a number of messages through the contact page that we have not been able to reply to. Please fill out the contact sheet especially with your email address or we cannot reply to your question!
Driver and Event Sponsorships

RC Pro Products is building the RC Pro Products Team but as much as we would like to support every race out there and drivers it's just not possible. We will be supporting select events and we currently have a small team in development. The team is mostly full at this time except in select areas. Carlton is making selections for the team based on his years of dealing with racers around the country through RC Pro Series. The main criteria for drivers is to find people who will represent the products and company well to the public. Also drivers who go to races in their area not just race at one track.

For more info on what areas are open please email rcproproducts@rcprosites.com
