Default weekend results...

I finally got to race after about 3-4 weeks off.


Today I raced at Trackside in Wisconsin...most people who have been there know that it's probably the best place around the midwest for indoor onroad. The mod class has B.Jucha and P. Lemiux battling it out crazy fast style!


I ran my TC3 and qualified 9th in the A Main...out of 3 Heats of stock/rubber. I ended up finishing 8th or 9th not to sure...but I was more then happy to make the A.

The Fukuyama cells worked AWESOME!


reznikvova.

the 1.15s are excellent cells....to start out you don't need the highest numbers and top of the line equipment.

I run a pretty stock FT TC3 w/ a Novak Dually and the only cells I own are 1.15s and one 1.16s pack, and a Monster stock. Alot of it will really come down to driving consistantly....I know many of the guys in the A Main or lower were running much higher # cells....so that's a testiment that these Fukuyama Racing cells...even 1..15s are fast...."Out Punch Your Competition"

On that note....I hope to pick up more cells soon and hopefully a Fukuyama motor!

Default Results

Today was my first onroad race in five weeks.

Power was awesome, of course. No questions there. Ran 19 turn today at La Mirada. It was my first time to this Parking Lot track. It was their Annual "Turkey Shootout" chairity race. It was a fairly big turnout for that class, 18 guys. I qualified 11th after chasing handling issues all day. Once I got the shocks right (and a body that handled well) I lapped the field and then some in the B and ran a race only 5 seconds off the TQ pace. Wish I could have run that one race before. Oh well, still a good day.

my packs are all 1.170+ the best being 1.175/1.176 cells

I"m doing a pretty heavy duty test on some of the Fukuyama cells along with some Good SMC's that have the same run time and Voltage
2 Fukuyama 1.178+/ 422 and 13
2 SMC 1.178+ 420 and 2.3

I have about 5 charges a piece on all 4 packs and I should be done with the results by the end of November...
I will have a full report for you guys around that time..after I give the results to Jimmy and Dan

Great results guys. I'm glad that everyone is enjoying their packs. This is a great Fukuyama family No racing for me this past weekend as I had family stuff to do. If Daniel comes through for me I might have a new touring car to drive soon.

Thanks again for all the support!

John

P.S. Buddha, nice pic!

Fuku packs got me 1st Place B main in Intermediate Stock at Socal Grand Prix. Batteries could have gotten me into the A if I could drive better.

Default Charging up and ready!!

Heres a pic from Sunday of my Mod Demon w/ Fukuyama packs!!

This si the first time I ever raced Full Mod Sedan (i.e. not 19 turn). I think I practiced with a modified once 2 years ago and broke the car in one or two laps.

Ray - Looking good. Good luck racing mod Fukuyama packs can handle that type of racing very well.
