There was a guy racing where I was this weekend and after the race I ran my Fukuyama Packs while he was running the ZX Racing packs. Both cars were setup about the same. I was running 26/81 and he was running a 25/81 with the B4 and we were pretty much the same. His packs where 1.173 and my pack at that time was a 1.171. My other friend was also runnign some of the Sandhill packs. He didn't have the punch of my cells but his last pack that he ran after the race he had some really good power. It was like the cells woke up or something.

I would look at Price. Most matchers have a different way of zapping the packs and everyone is going to tell you that so and so matcher is better. If you want solid packs that the Pros run then buy SMC. If you want great packs at a great price then get ZXRacing, Fukuyamam, or Promatch. All have the customer service that you need.

I usually get the packs that I need for a certain race condition. If I need high end 1.17+ with 410+ runtime for a big race then if one of the companies I mentioned above can get them for me then I will go with their packs. If a Company cuts me a deal then it is a different situation...but for right now that is how I go.

Yes I did and I responded to it. Did you not receive the response? Did you receive my email with your UPS tracking number that I also sent you?

I was told that John has some great numbers on the packs he is matching now. I am sure he will have some of those packs soon.
