Default Alpha F850 .21 (red head)

I have an Alpha .21 in great shape that needs to go.Has approximately 3 gallons through it,including break-in.It has great compression and everything is in perfect working order.Actually I just ran it yesterday.This thing really screams and the only reason I'm really selling it is because it's overkill for me where I race.I'm getting around 8 minutes out of a tank right now in my RC8B.Most people who run these are claiming between 9-10,so this motor is probably still a little on the tight side.

The cooling head has some minor defects and the bottom of the pipe has some flat spots from where the mount came loose and the pipe was hitting the chassis of the buggy,but I never noticed any performance difference.Plus you can't see any pipe defects once it's installed in the vehicle.


Here are the specs from the Alpha website:

Alpha F850 .21 5P Off-Road Competition Engine
● 3.5 cc high-performance engine for off-road buggy and truggy
● High performance ABC liner with 5 ports
● Turbo combustion chamber
● Double-needle carburetor in aluminum-plastic composite construction
● 3 Replaceable carburetor venturis to optimize carburetion (6.5mm, 7mm, 8mm)
● High quality ball bearings
● Excellent handling by linear power output
● Low fuel consumption
● SG-crankshaft
● Beautiful and fashionable red pineapple-shaped cooling head



The optional carb inserts and extra head shim are all new still and will be included.PM me with any questions or offers.

Looking to get $130 shipped in the lower 48.

Thanks for looking.
