The driver news continues with FX announcing that one of the world’s finest off-road racers, Jörn Neumann has after extensive testing of the 5K engine decided to race this engine for the 2014 racing season. Jörn, who previously raced Picco engines, is a talented off-road specialist racing both 1/10 and 1/8 classes and the list of achievements is extensive including 4 European titles. The Durango team driver will race with the FX engines all the 2014 major events including German Championship series, Neo Race, Efra GP and European & World Championship.
To change a nitro engine sponsor in the World Championship season is for sure a difficult decision for any driver especially because the engine’s performance & reliability play a very important role in any successful race. Despite FX are all new in the nitro engine industry I know Juraj and his dedication for an absolute perfection and I was very interested to test the new 5K engine. To my huge surprise the engines have been extremely reliable and have unbelievable power but are smooth at the same time. After extensive testing I was so amazed and because I want to have absolute confidence in my engine I have decided to use this engine for the 2014 season.
