Default Best alpha engine for my needs?

I have just got back into nitro cars again, and im looking for the engine i need as a few more names have come up since. I currently own an OS V-Spec, RB WS7 and a Picco P3 for bashing. Im going to want a new engine for this year, i found Alpha as being my best bet.

I need a good engine with low end, and also a decent top end. I'm kinda a guy who blips the throttle alot (trying to get out of that damn habbit).

Which of the alphas would do me good? Would any of the engines i own be better than an alpha? As i could easily get a new conrod for the vspec and maybe pinch it.

I have around a 180 budget for an engine so if theres any other ones let me know


Thanks, Tissue

Buggy or truggy?

A good all around alpha is the F850/club racer. For truggy it's really hard to beat the A852. I liketheA830/dragon in buggy. The 0801 pipe is the best all around pipe for alpha.

I got a killer deal on a A852 with hard coated pipe.

A pinch only last a gallon or two max BTW.
Is the 2090 pipe any good with the F850? I can get a pretty decent deal on that
