I'll belive it once it's confirmed there has been so much rumors on this & I spoke to the VP of Kyosho America & they are still with Sirio but things can always change

I guess seeing all their drivers go to another engine manufacture, it was bound to happen soon or later.

Ron Atomic also just signed a deal with novarossi last month and ditched the sirio, and heard that he liked the power the 353 puts out "he quote much better than sirio"

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.

Pretty means fast, right?

All kidding aside, the engine is pretty fast. Just be sure you keep up with all the changes, so that you can get the best performance out of the engine. Also keep in mind, that you need to get the CRF clutch parts for your particular car.
