We are sorry to announce that Ryan Rutz will quit Alpha Team.
His driver contract will not be renewed 2017.
We are very grateful to him for all the performances he had been brought for Alpha,
3 Worlds A Main Finals (2012, 2014 and 2016), Champion of Italian Job Race and countless number 1 and TQs...
He really did his jobs very professionally and did great for us over the last 7 years. Now we are beginning to miss his smile and crazy racing skills at the tracks.
Ryan Lutz has been a great ambassador for the Alpha brand, we are expecting to working with him again in the future soon.
Thank you Ryan Lutz, you are the best in our mind forever and all the best wishes to you for success.

"This is a very sad day for me to part with a longtime sponsor and great friends. I have been with Alpha Plus Model Co, Ltd. for 7 years, and feel I have shown that you don’t need the most expensive engine to compete at the highest level of R/C. My friends at Alpha have been behind me 100% and have done way more for me than simply supply me with engines to race. At their recommendation, I entered into small business ownership with LutzRC, and they supported me with a great product, and customer service that I could use to grow my own business. I am forever grateful for that opportunity.
Hopefully you’ve had the chance to read my article “Silly Season and what it means for the Pro’s”. Please know that there is any number of reasons for this change for me. I’m sure I could, but honestly I do not want to divulge into why I am making this change. Just know that for me, my family, and my current career path, that it is the decision that I have to make for myself.
I wish Alpha Plus nothing but the absolute best. They truly are great people, passionate about R/C car engines. Also to anyone that has purchased engines from me, please know that I am still available at any time to help you if you need assistance. Either by Facebook message, e-mail, or at the track.
