Ill place my vote for Fukuyama, Ive tried a few others but they were by far the best yet. And at a smoking deal with customer service that is second to none.

Fusion batteries are the best you can get for the money.

Fukuyama,mainly because of the ability to talk to a human when you call,and of course they are great cells.

This season I went through a lot of batteries from different companies (Fukuyama, Orion, SMC, Trinity, Promatch, etc), I would have to say that the Trinity batts performed the best for me.

Also consider the benefits of the induction method soldering for installing battery bars as done by Pro-Match Racing (PMR) on their pre-assembled packs. You can barely detect the solder joints done by them. I was looking for low IR numbers on 1.17+V packs so I went with PMR for my latest needs.

Fusion is doing the same thing; but, I have no experience with them.

Default best batteries !!

There are alot to choose from .. But the best are the batteries whom each individule feels are the best .. There are many ways and processes to get the best performance from the cells used which everyone calls the best ... In my opinion It depends on budget and also the need for power to inhance ones ability and driving skill's...... you decide FUKUYAMA ...

Default I am skeptical

It is a little like people spending $50 for speaker wire for their stereo system, when their is no real evidence(double blind test) of an audible difference between that stuff and generic 14 gauge zip cord.

If you are talking stock motors, 1/10 touring cars, 5 minute heats, non-pro regular drivers I would like to see some real world double blind test results.

Wise thoughts on your part. But, batches from different sources probably would make test results useless.

The other aspect is how one takes care of their batteries. In my first 3 months of racing, I abused my name brand batteries. In my next 3 months, I have been better; but, not perfect. Now, I am on my third set of batteries and doing the right things to help them perform at their peak for hopefully a longer duration. In general, I intend to buy new batteries every 3 months because I race indoor/outdoor all year around.

Otherwise, the Trinity, SMC and Pro-Match batteries I have used to date have all performed commendably for what I asked of them.
