We started with the rainbow shrink wraps but now mostly are the green and yellow shrink wraps. They're both the same in fact the rainbow shrinks we had previously had a higher tolerance so the cells are higher voltage while the greens/yellows we have now are lower in IR. Both works great and are the newer batches.

That's a hard question. in your case, it is best to wait if you're planning to run it next year. The shelve life shouldn't be that bad but you would probably have to cycle it a couple of times first and it most likely will false peak the first couple of cycles. If you were to purchase them now, then you might want to fully charge them and store them in a dry cool place but again, it's really up to you and buying them now versus buying them when you're ready doesn't make much of a difference.

GTMilenko.

Like Jimmy was saying maybe it's a good idea to wait until next year since they won't see any use for a few months....who knows...the way the GP3300s keep getting better and better you might see even higher voltage.

Default Guys, I just got home

I just got home from a long day of overtime at the shop and my brother is still there with the guys working on more cells. I can't believe this thread is moving so fast with such awesome testamonial statements coming from all of you! I am truly flattered and you guys are making me blush.

You guys have no idea how good this makes me feel when I read about a product that came from Fukuyama Racing knowing my team and I have put in long hard hours and sweat through the process with testing, testing and more testing just to bring out the best there is for our friends like you. Between Dan, Yoshi, Ito, our gang of techs and myself, we sincerely "Thank all of you" for the support and WILL continue to do our best always!

I have purchased Power Cube from you. The moment I got them I put them on my Shulze charger/discharger in order to "match" them since those cells don't come with numbers.

After matching, I took the best of the 3 on my friends Protrak. On this charger we charge/discharge all new batteries and keep the number for comparison reasons.

The result showed that the pack has low IR, great voltage, but low capacity

On Sunday I raced them for the first time. 2 on the preliminaries and 1 at the finals. All 3 performed excellent, no problem on puch or duration.

I can say that you have on more happy customer across the atlantic!

Thank you for a great value for money batteries!

Nick
