Default Batteries: SMC, Yokomo, or Fukuyama???

I run stock and now have time to dedicate more time to racing, I want to get more batteries but, not sure which brand to get? I currenltly have 3 SMC race packs and 3 SMC practice packs. The SMCs work fine for me but, I have heard alot of good things about Fukuyama and now Yokomo has their batteries.

Question 1: Is there a preferred brand or if the numbers are comparable, brand doesn't matter.

Question 2: I run 1 TC in 1 class. How many batteries should I have for a typical race day (practice runs, 3 qualifiers, 1 main)?

I don't think any of the brands matter as long as its from a reputable company. You will never get a straight answer from this question because of brand loyalty. I've tried fukuyama be4 and currently am running kinetix. I don't believe theres a difference. Just get the best you can afford.

Thanks for the responses.

I guess they are all the same. Never thought about the brand loyalty thing. I guess this question is just like asking which Monster Stock motor is better? They are all the same.

Thank you all again.
