LOL, but technically, the Sirio is made by Rossi.

Looking at the T shirts it would seem Kyosho came second and third.

Technicaly, Andrea Rossi who produces the Sirio engines, has nothing to do with nor is he currently or ever been involded with the production of Rossi motors. Just wanted to set the facts straight, Rossi as a last name is like Smith here in the US!

Ran my Rossi R12 pixy at a practice night last week. Was having a bit of a muck around race with a buddy, who is powered by JP. Entered the straight approximately 1m behind and drove past him just before entering the sweeper.

Suprised him and myself.

It looked like Matt Francis was practicing for the Worlds today with this motor. He had a stack of the boxs next to him on his table today. Just FYI.

There where also cars flying by with big Sirio stickers on the sides. Looks like the Worlds may be the first major race for alot of these new engines.

Thanks for the pics Can you post larger ones? I think it's too small... But not too big though

I'm new to the photo posting/ digital camera thing. The "reply" always tells me my photos are too large and I don't know how to shrink them properly. As soon as I figure it out I'll put up a few more photos.

All things being the same between 2 cars that have these two engines tuned at their peak and in the same racing condition...in a word, No.
