Default FX Engines

Looks like a new player about to launch onto the market or is it... http://www.fx-engines.com/

A little further research and it looks like Xray/Hudy are launching into the engine market under the FX Engine brand.

http://www.ipaustralia.com.au/applic...marks/1511221/

Anyone know more?

The EFRA exhaust list allready contains a Hudy exhaust and old news on Neobuggy has shown some pics of an unbranded motor Hudy was using.

All made in house by the Hudy's... only off road motors though, maybe onroad in the future.

Well, with the off center screw to lock the carburator I would say OS based, for sure with the story about the best plugs from Japan. Ofcourse all is produced in own house as many OEM brands dare to advertise with but I know Hudy can do this.

I do know 6 years building from scratch is a normal tme to get a competive engine but on the other hand if you can not get it right and do want to have an own engine line the only option left is to talk with current engine manufacturers.....

I noticed that on the redrc pic but it made me think of LM. Case looks a lot like my old RB Xenon Alpha.

Neo Buggy did an interview with Mr Hudy and he says the engine is 100% designed and manufactured in-house. No outside vendors.

JP FX had nothing to do with Hudy or the whole new FX brand.

Well, the head did say designed and manufactured in the EU. That would seem to rule out OS or China.
