Default Fukuyama or KinetiX!?!?!

Kinetix has a huge sale on 1.170-1.174 for $55 one pack assembled, while Fukuyama has 1.170-1.174 for $58 for one pack assembled.

If anyone has had any experience with these batteries, please let me know what one to choose!! I need to know the better cell!

Im going to buy 3 packs so I dont want $170 going down the drain

I prefer Fukuyama. Their service is the best I've ever had from any company and their cells are the best I've ever run. Dan is a great guy and they're second to none. You can't miss with Fukuyama cells!

I've heard stories about how meticulous (SP?) they are about their solder jobs on their batteries.

Rob brings up a good point, they're tech service is amazing. I've learned more about battery care in the last couple of months since I began running Fuku cells from the team drivers as well as Dan, than I did in the last two years since I came back to racing. They've all been a huge help. Pick some up and let us all on the Fukuyama thread know how they work out for you.

kevanb
This just my own 02cent...the sale price don't mean much
You needs to have the battery company that would stand behind their product and a great tech service support...and I found that the FUKUYAMA RACING are great choices and alot of new customer like it at the very first time ..I being racing for long time and I was really amazed about the fukuyama battery and the price too..
So hurry don't be delay for the best.. Frankos

I bought 5 packs from KinetiX, all 1.17+ packs. They didn't give me the punch I wanted, so I asked Dan if he'd rematch them for me to see if the #'s were off. Out of 30 cells, 3 of them were very low 1.17's! I had maybe 15 mid 1.16's, and the rest were 1.15's! Those #'s are after only 1 run, when they should be at their peak voltage. I will never suggest KinetiX to anyone after that...

Have to agree with TexasRacer, Kinetix are awesome cells. There are quite a few of us here in KC using them know and no problems with any of them. I have raced with Ron before and he is a very honest and straight forward person to deal with.
