Peter V over at Radio Control Zone posted a few exploded shots of the Fastom 735 Engine that showed up on the internet today but had little or no other information about it. So i checked a few things and found that this engine is made by BP Racing in Italy and was in fact introduced earlier this year at the toy fair in NÃ¼rnberg along with the Motonica and early reports are that it isn’t as hot as it looks.
