My wife is very cool about my racing. She knew when we met back in high school, eventhough I wasn't currently racing, that I had been into this since I was a little kid and that me getting back into racing was bound to happen.

Buy all you can now...it gets harder after you get married..especially the first 10-20 years..
I tell my wife I get it for half what I actually paid and from Ebay!
She's tried to get me to stop...but to no avail. now that we have a 2yr old son..it's going to be even harder... He's got his own Fukuyama powered race car to tinker with.

Well since I provide a nice little living for her, and am getting ready to build her a house(own a construction company) she doesnt give me too much flak except that one room is all RC cars and equipment. She doesnt like that. I own at least 30, but I think its more gas/electric RC cars. some NIB vintage, some built vintage, and some racer/basher cars also, and she hasnt been able to stop me yet! Shes a good girl though. Pretty understanding with me for the most part. I do get myself in trouble alot though!

Default Attention: Rumors circulating

Just to set the records straight since being good and helpful as a company who cares about its customers is sometimes frown upon by others who refused to believe in our company for how we became successful by giving back what the consumers rightfully deserved. Please keep in mind that this is not a sympathy (sp?) post nor is it in defensive or offensive mode. Somethings has to be said and said out loud so that others who are trying so desperately to demeanor our company does not achieve it's intentions.


Although we do buy cases and cases of batteries from Promatch and other GP distributors, we do our own in house processing. This is because we have enough CE Turbo Matchers cover the demands we now have in the marketplace. Those of you who have visited Fukuyama Racing knows that our office is furnished with rows and rows of Turbomatcher along with a locked room where our CET process is done. Also the fact that we currently have two facilities with one being the office where cells are randomly picked and checked for accuracy and mail orders. Another facility is where majority of the works and matches take place. So, whoever started this rumor, we'll know who you are once we investigate.

Thank you for your attention.

Daniel
Fukuyama Racing

I also just placed my second order with Daniel. Compliments to him and the excellent products and service he provides. The rest of the industry could take lessons in how to build a loyal customer base. The best form of advertising is the kind you cant buy, Word of mouth recommendations by happy customers.

Glad to hear that the good word about Fukuyama Cells continue to grow! It's about that time when it's a big three out there for providing cells, SMC, Promatch and Fukuyama!

The allegations about Fukuyama having Promatch match their cells is ludicrous! Everyone knows that Fukuyama has a state of the art matching facility. I can't believe that this rumor has even started. Everyone knows that Promatch does provide cells to the industry, it's just one of the avenues that Fukuyama obtains their cells, but they do not match for us.

A special thanks goes out to Dan and the staff at Fukuyama for putting up a special congratulations to myself and Carrie for getting engaged on www.fukuyamaracing.com. This is truely a very special event and we are so happy for everyones support. We could not ask for more special friends from you guys and we feel you guys are part of our family. God bless.

John

Attached is a pic of your representation in the masters class. Hope it comes through.

Bob shouldn't have any problems with that paint job on his car.

Boy, Just another fun night of racing with my new fukuyama cells.. In 1/12 scale I'm running a 19T Quad spec motor against some 10t motors. I'm as fast or faster down the straight against them. Guys are alittle stunned I'm that fast.... In touring I placed 3rd in A main in a very competitive class. All I need to do is find some more corner speed. And I'll be there.. But the huge factor in my cars are the cells, Fukuyama cells....
