I have both FX and OS engines, but they don't tune and run the same imo.
Yeah, I had FX and MX mixed up.

It already has been crazy, and probably never.

Well... with a carburator that looks like the one from XRD (LM/Sirio), glowplugs from a Japanese manufacturer (OS), a main bearing size only Novarossi knows and a sleeve that looks from the top as a typical OS I think a lot is bought from other manufacturers. The pictures of all the machines of the FX engines information folder seems straight from the machines manufacturer folders.

But about the silly season...
Infinity is about to publish their buggy, will we see a huge Infinity offroad team with many top nemes?

No we will not, not really any top drivers that have not signed a contract already.

All kidding aside, you never know. Itís still January, so who knows if thereís another deal or two waiting to be announced, and possibly in other classes as well - just saw a new driver announcement today for Team Shepherd over on RedRC.

Anyway, Iím just a little surprised at the number of announcements made this year, considering how little racing took place last year. On the other hand, this is a HUGE year, considering that some 20 WCís need to be made up, not to mention the Ď21 WCís, if IFMAR doesnít delay those to catch up.

I don't see the 20 WC's being made up. Still too much lock down around the world. 21 WC's might be ran late this year. But travel internationally will be the real question. Plus will people really want to travel with a possibility of a shut down over seas while a race is going on?

No make up for the 2020 WCs. They are planning for '22.
