1/8 scale race this weekend I ran a 30 min main Strong to take first and bump up to A main. Car fell alittle short 20 min. into the race; got a little personal work going on there. As for the Fusion Powered hump pack, everthing else comes up short.

I hope to pick up an 1/8 scale rig shortly and I plan on trying one of Fusions' hump packs. Last time I ran nitro vehicles, we still used 600 mah. nicad receiver packs. That sucked!!

John:
Do you think it would be more advantageous to run 1.16's or 1.18's on an Off-road track? Why? I have heard that the .16's make the vehicle more controllable but I like the power availability of the .18's.

unless you have really good traction or really long straights the 1.16's will be better. Less wheel spin is always better when trying to get power to the ground. Personally I always like to get the best packs I can and then tune the clutch and the current limiter to the track. That way you always get the velocity on the straights and the controlability in the bumps and twisty stuff. Also helps for those doubles and triples.

Thanks for the info. I'll try that on the dirt track tomorrow.

This is just a thought but, you could also take the middle ground and get the 1.17s. This is what I have done. For my local track they are perfect. Plenty of top end and not so much punch that I need to play around with my clutch or electronics.

That's an even better idea. Like I really needed another excuse to get some more Fusion Batteries!

Default a-main again

Our batteries are awsome. We have two 1.18 world packs and two 1.79 team packs. We won in Mod truck and finished 4th. in stock buggy at Albion Illinois. I cant say enough about the performance we get from them.
Albion is a great place to race at. They are located in Southern Illinois roar region 5. They also have a good crowd each week too. Hope to see some new faces there sometimes.

My Fusion cells have powered my TC3 to top 3 "A" Main finishes for the last two weeks. Hopefully I can get the "W" tomorrow. The packs brought me from the mid "B" to top 5 in the "A".

We like the wheely popping action from th 1.81's. If these packs continue to get better after each charge like our other Fusion bateries we may have to install wheelie bars!!
Keep Up The Great Work John

Are there any 1.18's in stock in a 4 cell non hump pack configuration?
