runtime isnt really an issue yet since they only run 4 min qualifying and mains for intermediate where i race.. will there be a noticeable difference in punch? thanks for the quick response.

On my turbo 35 you have to use the 50mv or .05 cutoff to get a maximun charge. I was using .03 and and got an 80% charge. The difference is about 7 to 8 minutes extra charge time. Bigggg difference. (This is gp3300 NiMh cells).

Hey guys its Mo Denton
just thought that I would get on here and say hi.
it doesnt sound like anyone of you have any questions about Fukuyama batts but if you do
I would be happy to answer any questions you might have.
I was able to set TQ after TQ at the US INDOOR CHAMPS simply because my batts did what they were supposed to do.
Its a good feeling to have the best car in the building, best motor in the building ,then be able to put the best batts in the building in my car because luckily it didnt depend so much on my driving LOL.
and as far as the motors go everyone should buy at least two, one for you and one for the competition just to make it fair. HAHA
see ya
Mo

I think you'll get more volts from the .05 cutoff. I felt a big difference on the track.

I haven't tried the 30mv cutoff so I don't know if there's a noticable difference in puch. Could be though.

Hey RCSilly
great run for you too
I charge my 1/12 scalee packs at 6.5 with a .04 cut off
on the GFX
then I check the temperature when they are done charging and when I peak I keep peaking them untill they get back up to that temperature usually between 142 and 155 degrees
thanks
Mo

i have my two packs of fukuyama batteries..

is there a difference (performance wise) between charging it at 30mv cutoff per pack..and charging it at 50mv cutoff per pack at 6amps?

i remember i had my yokomo MMS charger set to 50mv..and the batteries got hotter than when it was set to 30mv. both were set to charge at 6 amps.

thanks for the help!
Chris,

Get yourself a temp gun. Check and make sure you temp is around 145 ~ 150f and you'll be fine. Most likely, for your 6 pack, go with .04~.05 peak detect. If you need more help, please give me a call. I'm at the office with the guys sipping on Jack Daniels! LOL
