I made a good showing this past weekend as well. All with Fusion horsepower. I TQd stock truck and buggy. I was able to pull out the win in truck but had some trouble in traffic and could not make it a repeat in buggy. All this at DirtBurner racing in Commerce township. Michigan. I cant wait for the new packs I just ordered to show up so that I can use them in Columbus this weekend.

Im just getting back into racing, and one of my main concerns is getting some good quality batts. I would really like to try some of these fusion battery's. Are these mail order only, or can I get them at my local guy? I could use some advice on quality charging/discharging units and battery maint.

Thanks guys.

Icecreamman-

I charge my packs on an Intellipeak Ice charger. Set the mV threshhold at 6mV and the charge amperage at 5 amps. As for discharging I made a discharge tree using 1157 auto lightbulbs that discharges packs at 28-30 amps. I use a cutoff box that cuts the voltage off at 0.9 volts per cell.

Your local shop should be able to get them for you. We are carried by Horizon so they should be able to order anything you want. We also do internet sales for those who are not inclined to shop at their lhs.

These cells are amazing. I finally had a chance to out mine to the test, and I must say that I am impressed. I am a new member to the team and I do not regret it one bit. Since I moved back to off-road I have been struggling at my track to find the speed to compete at the track with so much local talent. Well I busted in with the fusion packs, had more straight away speed than anyone else in the track. I was running a new BK2 that I am still dialing in, and it gets better and better every run. I took 3rd in the Amain. I have raced all over, and alot in California, where most of the greats live and race, but my local track has across the board, the best group of pure drivers I have ever seen. But thanks to Fusion, that gap is closed.

John you have an Email waiting for you.

If your local Hobbyshop does'nt stock them you can go to Fusionbatteries.com and order from there. They are awsome packs. I have several, I also have orion packs and the Fusion packs out perform them. The Orions are 1.189's. I charge my Fusion packs at 5 amps and discharge to 5.4 volts. Tray them for a short period before re-charging. Good Luck IceCreamMan, glad your getting back into the hobby.

Default Fusion Packs

We have added another win in Mod Truck using Fusion Team and World packs. These packs keep getting better with each charge. If any of you guy's live near Southern Illinois you need to make a trip to Action Hobby. Also if you live near Jasper Indianna, Southern Indiana at Nedpepper Hobbies We have been having some great turn outs for the races. Pay Action Hobby a visit at their website. www.action-hobby.com and Nedpeppers at Nedpeppershobbies .com If you are near either track and need directions drop a PM or reply to this thread. Fusion rocks!!

Just a couple questions John, Is there anyway i can order the batteries Shrink wrapped? and pay alittle more?

Also, is it better to use a 1.16 fusion battery for bj4 mod racing and then use 1.17's for stock truck racing?
