keep em coming guys.

As for the practice packs those are usually packs that for some reason do not meet our standard specs for either runtime or voltage. They do come up once in a while.

One thing that I have noticed about my fusion packs is that they discharge in a very linear manor. Unlike some packs, they do not give you one or two rocket laps and then fall off. Some people might like that extra burst at the beginning of a race,it might help them jump to the front, but as we all know most races are not won in the first corner. I would much rather have a pack that will act the same throughout an entire race. that way I know that I can clear that big triple or tabletop every lap instead of just the first one or two laps. So far, in my experience this has been the case.

Good job Fusion

Wes Brakhage.

As a Fusion driver I just started running them in my B4 at a local track and I get alot of comments about what batteries I'm running. I always have plenty of runtime & almost too much power!

I use my Fusion batteries in my B4, T3, T4 and TC3. The power available throughout the race is like having 7 of the "other" kind. I felt like I had lots of extra, but consistent power. I love 'em!

Do you recommend deadshorting after discharge? I was told that that can improve voltage at the sacrifice of run time.

Red,
we dont recommend shorting your cells but we have had reports of improved performance by doing it.

Hi guy's,

Does anyone here run the off road specialty packs, are they any good enough to be competitive with, and what are they like compared to the worlds packs?

Thanks,
Adam

I am sure that the specialty packs are competitive, I don't think they would sell them if they were not. However, I have no actual experience with them.

Our regionals were done with Double A-mains...

I won Roar Region 1 Modified Buggy champs, placed second in stock buggy, Won the B-main in Modified truck by over a lap with a time that would have gotten me second in the A-main (unlucky qualifing put me in the B) and got fourth in stock truck A-main (won 1 round of the main)

Also won both Modified Buggy and Modified Truck at the ROAR Connecticut state champs.

All with Fusion Battery packs!!

They worked pretty damn good for me!!

I also work at my local hobby shop, our hobby shop is one of the leading Fusion battery dealers in the country, and i have only seen one Fusion battery assembly break apart in an accident. The battery got pulled apart when the trucks chassis broke in half!

Fusion batteries are assembled very well as well.

A question for Fusion. Just curious, but what type of hardware do you use for cell matching (lavco, Competition electronics, or other?)
