Its a good read, definately a quality engine. Really nothing ground breaking on the engine but it should last.

Aaaaand it is back again....

To me the story is a bit overdone. Everthing is special, high end, high quality etc. Proud of working in 0.001mm tolerances on one side and telling "handfinished" on the other side. But yes, it is a nice story to read, now the next step is an onroad engine? That is the thing to sepperate themselves from the avarage market.

While I applaud FX efforts and quality. I am sure they are no more scrutinized in quality control or choice of materials than say NOVAROSSI, PICCO or OS. Good read and to actually see the machines they have makes me sleep better at night! Even though I am not a machinist and cannot appreciate good machines from bad! lol

Real test is when I see one on the track!

Honestly, I'd respect it more if the pictures showed REAL manufacturing conditions and not this phony-baloney CSI-style Ikea-catalogue lighting.

That's what I'm talking about, representative of reality! Thanks, that was a great video.

No, just a guy who want to see a real story than only some commercial selling crap. The focus is a bit blown up to the machines, expertise, quality and the used software to give an idea that also the product must have a high quality. True, the whole story is nice to read and does give some insight information with some question marks and I am sure Hudy stands for quality but even SH and Force can make a competive offroad engine without telling which (crappy?) machines they use.

The only real information most of us want to know is if it can outperform all others with a good lifespan and will others follow like a .25, .28 and .12/.21 onroad.
