Alright-I get to finally run one of my Team fukuyama batteries tonight!!! Track will be slippery as heck due to the recent track redesign, dust from lots of construction work and vacuuming. But- riiip is rip. I cannot wait.This is for 12th scale stock. 6amps at 5Mv on a LRP Pulsar okay for very first charge?

Depending on the temperature. Go 3mv since it's a 4cell pack.

Jimmy and Danny-I kid you not-I charged your 4-cell pack, ran it and the guy helping me build the track tonight said-is that a Modified motor!!! I am not kidding.

Since I was just putting traction down and checking the track for flow, I didnt bother to cycle it even though it sat three or four weeks. It ripped. I dumped it on the track and then took it down on my Integy Octane 20 for 3 or 4 minutes and put it away for Sunday!!!

Ray, glad you like them. Fukuyama cells are the best on the market to date. Give us a review how you think they compare to other cells that you have used.

Well-now we have two things in common. Demons and Fukuyama batteries. Sunday I will have no less than 4 different matchers batteries in my cars-all new. It will be interesting to see how they all do. Power Push, O-Tec, Fukuyama and Sandhills Raceway.

Hey Ray,

Glad you enjoy them. Since the pack have been sitting for so long and it was only the first charge, wait til you do a second run in the same day. Rob Love knows this too. The second run is where our CET shines the most!

Now if you're going to do some comparison, make sure the you're comparing voltage to voltage and IR to IR..

Ray-

Let me know how the Sandhills does. My friend that wanted to get some Fukuyama packs ended up getting 4 packs of the Sandhill packs off e-bay sine he and I have a race next weekend. He got the 1.170-1.175 packs 420-425 sec. I think he might have made a msitake.

Hi Buddha,

The 1.15s are now harder to come by since most cells reach mid 1.16s. We should have some by next week if you don't mind checking back with us.

I don't know about other matchers but cells shouldn't be that much of a difference. The only thing I must say is that beside comparing voltage to voltage and IR to IR, one has to drive similar in order for it to be compared. I truly believe other matchers are just as good but it all boils down to price, support and how well the cells were processed. One thing I dislike with some other matchers is they tend to "BAD-MOUTH" other matchers. Something we WILL NOT do even if it cost us a sale what not. Every matcher has their own zapping and cycling process so its a toss up. Our secret process has allowed us to have a very consistant yield of cells at ultra low IR.

Jimmy/Dan..

will you guys have decals made and sell... so we can put them on our cars? T-shirts?


I've had a couple racers ask me if I was running a 19T in stock class...... I just tell them " nope... it's Fukuyama powered...."

I loaned a couple packs to my bro... all he can say is "wow!!!"
"the best cell's I've ever used" I hope he give me back my packs and place an order soon....

keep up the great guys...
