Default Kyosho give's Sirio The boot

Text from www.Redrc.net
We have been reporting on the ongoing saga between Kyosho and Sirio for some time now and although some people dont want to believe its true, i can tell you that its happening folks. We have heard from a very reliable source in Japan that Kyosho are very close to completing a deal with Swiss company CRF to supply engines for their entire range of cars.
The consequence of this deal is that Sirio, the Italian engine company who previously supplied Kyosho is out, which seems to tie in with what we have been reporting on Kyosho team drivers leaving Sirio as their engine supplier and, as it turns out, choosing CRF. Adrien Bertin left Sirio to work for Team Orion, focussing on the development of the CRF engines, Josh Cyrul is a long time CRF user and was the first Kyosho team driver to switch away from Sirio, Ilia van Gastel has been confirmed to be running CRF engines which only leaves Takaaki Shimo to confirm his position with CRF which we expect to happen at the Shizuoka Hobby show in Japan in 2 weeks time, along with the official announcement of the partnership.

I wonder if Kyosho will still import Sirio engine to North America anymore? More than likely not is my guess. So once again Sirio would be without a distributor. Not to helpful for Sirio owners (if that will be the case).
