I heard they are the same as a Alpha and GoTech motor.

They are a Go Tech based engine. I have seen one run and it looked pretty good.

i have the 3 port broken in only. i'm sure it will be good. the sleeve has a bit more done to it than the go's and they dont come with a venturi kit or second con rod so thats why they are a bit cheeper than the go's. the head is better and the carb is the new style. they'll give you 5 gallons easily before any issues come up.

You can check out the Precirotate Forum, I was thinking about getting one but decided to go with an Alpha, either way they look very promising.

i have an green head Alpha now, it has two gallons on it but im not sure if im going to keep it or not. but i found my next engine. i am not a fan of go, dont last long enough for me. i loved my GRP so im going back to something almost identical: http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ine-Turbo-Plug

i tried one out today and its faster than my tuned GRP was. and it was getting almost 9 mine a tank and tempt at 185-195 at a almost empty tank. wasnt fully broken in yet.
