just to give you an idea of how good Fukuyama cells are, ive just bought two packs of the 1.165-1.169 packs. I ran in stock last weekend and I ran my Team Orion cells and from 6th in the first final I caught the leader with 4 laps left, in race 2 i ran my new cells and the punch was amazing! i caught and passed the leader after 4 laps!!!! these cells are amazing, GET SOME!

I bought some INTEGY CELLS last month and bought some FUKUYAMA CELLS also, in my opinion, I didn't see any difference between INTEGY and FUKUYAMA, or INTEGY's(1.22 at 20amp) are little bit better than FUKUYAMA CELLS(1.174 at 30amp).
How about SMC? that's the best brand I've ever tried !!!

Wow this thread is even confusing me
how do you rate SMC packs, pretty damn good, I ran for them last year and did pretty well.
Other manufactures Kinetix,Hurricane,Promatch,Integy
all obviously have their stuff together or they wouldnt be mentioned so much.
it just so happened that a week before cleveland I had 10 batteries in my box from six different companies and the best one in my box on the GFX and the track lap times was a 1.172 Fukuyama. I made the call and ordered some for cleveland.
I run for Fukuyama now so naturally I would tell you what to buy.
but consider this I never made the A main in cleveland before this year TQing 3 rounds in a row.Rob Love never made the A main in clevland before this year and he puts it in as well. Whatever choice you make you will not be disapointed with Fukuyama cells.
I havent yet met someone who is.

I talked to my battery sponsor the other day and he told me that the GP 3300's have gotten so good that they don't get the big differences between cells anymore as they have in the past.

this means, that even a unmatched pack is very decent.

I also bought two packs from Integy when my matcher was out of them and they are great, just as good as anybody else's.

I got my Fukuyama cells and compared them to my Integy Packs. Here are the numbers for just one cycle. I used a reedy Quasar Pro with a 20 amp discharge.

643 sec 1.22v no IR #

test: 583 sec. /ave V 7.0 /3200mv drawn

423 sec 1.167 IR 15

test: 654 sec. /ave V 7.06 /3576mv draw

I havent tested them on the track yet but Im expecting the numbers to show up there too.

my integy cells have been keeping up or beating the top of the line cells in my area. There are reedy, smc, and trinity driver's in my area. The GP cells are (IMO) better than what we were use to seeing in the 3000 and older era so just about every battery company is going to have decent cells.
