Alpha Plus and Ryan Lutz have teamed together to produce ‘The Lutz Edition’ Alpha Plus Engine. Based off the popular A852 model from Alpha Plus, the Lutz Edition has a few performance and cosmetic tweaks that give it a one of a kind look and feel. It starts at the top with the in-your-face hot pink signature cooling head sure to make you and your race vehicle stand out at the track. Drivers know that to race pink you have to be fast and that’s what this engine will ensure. The engine head itself is 2 fins lower than current Alpha Plus Models, providing 2 fins that wrap around the top of the crankcase to provide better cooling, while also boasting a lower Center of Gravity.
As you work your way down the crankcase you’ll notice some attention to detail as cutouts and weight savings were considered. This engine is very light (under 350g) and goes very well with today’s drivers who are really geared towards weight savings on their race cars! Also not to be missed on the crankcase is another signature from Ryan Lutz showing his representation and support for this exciting product.
Moving your gaze up and forward now towards the carburetor you’ll find a super smooth throttle slide equipped with a new low speed needle providing a smooth linear feel and increased fuel economy. Also as standard on Alpha Engines the 12-hour dial around the low speed needle so you can easily remember where you have your needle set at and your mechanic can always know how much 2 hours or 3 hours signifies! Looking now just below the high speed needle you find more cutouts for decreased weight and better cooling of the carb.
All in all this engine is sure to grab attention at the track where it’s looking good sitting in your vehicle in the pits, or screaming down the straight at nearly 40,000 RPM. The proven 5+2 Ports design provides plenty of power on both top and bottom end. Perfect for those looking for a smooth Truggy engine or those that like a strong bottom end in their 1/8th Buggy all the while smoking other racers down the straightaway! So be sure to pick up your own “Lutz Edition” Alpha plus engine and be the talk of the race track.
