Randman,

Yeah they are still around. They really put out some good motors. If your looking for some good motors just call em and ask for Judi and tell her Greg sent you. She'll do you right. My monsters from them lately have been killer!

Guys,
<personal update>
Just wanted to give you guys an update on the latest batches of GP cells. We have tried very hard but it looks like the higher number cells from previous batches have suddenly disappeared from GP in the last few shipments we've got. It is safe for me to say that this is an industry wide thing and not just Fukuyama Racing. Although there still might be some high numbers circulating around, the latest cells aren't producing the higher numbers. You will find the runtime and voltage are still well within spec and cells will still deliver plenty of punch and performance, but I had to be honest with you since I'm getting lots of calls wanting the 1.179 cells. They aren't happening for anybody that I'm aware of. I believe GP is well aware of this and will soon fix this I hope. For the meantime, more races are won with the 1.16s then the 1.17s so although voltage might be something we all hope for but driving is still the key to it all. Rest assure that once our motors are out, it'll make your 1.16 feel like 1.18s. Also, since the whole industry is experiencing similar batches, it is quite nice to know the playing ground is still fair for everyone. Just thought I'd share this info with you. </personal update>
I think it has to do with the new batches being the shorter (ROAR spec's) cell. Your right it is an industry wide thing!!

Default Kinda slow these last few days?

I suspect it must be that everybody is in the Holiday mood already.

rc-zombie, got a package going to ALR. "ya betta watch out!" LOL

Nexus, same with you. "Ya betta watch out!". (package)

Hixsy, not much secret once we launch it. Lets just say that it'll have a higher RPM and torque than the Monster and will require to be geared close to Mod for that AWESOME crazy rip!

SpeediePHATT, I don't mind you sending some of those stashed away money our way. LOL.. like others say, just click and use paypal. Simple.

Fire, Thanks again bro!

John Fontaine, email me with your request list. LOL

Yetiman, If you think the cells arrived FAST, wait til you run em'. They'll be even faster.

racenut123 , ygpm


Last, looks like we'll by matching some "HV" cells. If you guys remembered back a few months ago that GP was pulling the top cells off the manufacturing line for some big companies. Well, the rumor was true and we've had our fair share for those who already owns some. But we've ordered more and they arrived promptly. These are the sweetest cells GP has and they're pretty much all above and beyond Spec. We'll be done with them in a few days. Please stay tuned.

Dan

P.S. have a great weekend!
