I think a couple shots of brandy will cure anything. ...

I designed the machinery to package the flu mist vaccine.

I used an 80 watt Weller iron, and I thought I did a decent job assembling it but who knows. Next pack I get from Fukuyama I'll have assembled by them, and see if that makes a difference. IR was considerably higher than the lables.

There is a difference in resistance but it only depends on the solder you're using and how much. If you doubt the voltage, I'll gladly take it back and take a look at it. The batteries, like all matchers, are done and matched in an ideal control enviroment. Once soldered and built, there should be an increase of IR no doubt. There is also a deviation with a T35, T30 and GFX although the readouts should be more accurate when each cells is read individually. But for what its worth, if the runtime is good and solid and performs under load with good to great punch, then there is absolutely no problems with the pack. Here's what you can also do. Equalize the packs for 20 mintues with an Octane 2, then charge and cycle at 6 amps with an intermission of 6 minutes of cooling only so the pack is still hot to warm, then discharge at 30 amps. Once done, let it rest and repeat the process after 2 hours. Now, the second cycle is a more accurate number of what your cells will look like under racing condition. Hope this helps and Thanks again for supporting Fukuyama Racing!

Default Heads up T4T

Guys, just wanted to let those who are planning the local T4T race this Sunday that I'll be there but because there might be more people attending and pitting with us, if you can please bring your own pit table, chair and an additional tent. I'm hoping we can all be having a blast with the FUKU row of racers but my tent is only a 10x10'. The gen is 2000watt Honda but there's already 3 charger, 2 solders and a compressor tapped onto it. So let's hope we have enough to share.

I'll also bring the soda, bottle waters, and ice. There's others in the ice chest but I'll just let you find out.

We won't be carrying any new packs of batteries since our inventories are quite low this week and the numbers are mostly 1.16s. Therefore I must apologize. Lets just make this race outing a fun one and all party a bit more then usual since it's the last Parking Lot race of the year. Hope you all can bring that Xmas mood with you and rock the track! I'm wanting to meet all of you who I might have missed in the last Toyota Race and those who I've meet, lets just hook up again and party some more.! yeah!

See ya there.

Dan
P.S. We're talking about the Toys for Tots charity race out in La Mirada this coming Sunday hosted by Charlie Barnes.

How long can you keep a battery without using it and not causing harm to it?

I'm anxious about the La Mirada T4T race as well, had a great time hanging out in the Fuku pit last time, and it sounds as if it's gonna be a lot bigger this time around Too bad this batch of cells sucked, I was amazed at how many people switched to Fuku power at the last race

The only thing I'm not so excited about is the 3:30am wake up call

Maj.Teeth I run more chargers and irons off my Honda 1000 gen so you should be ok. The compressor will use the most power, especially when you first turn it on. Might want to check all you chargers once you turn on the compressor as it might make them false peak.

We were actually fine with power last time with 2 chargers, 2 irons, lights, and the compressor. I gotta say that Honda generator is sweet, we had it right in the pit with us, and you couldn't even hear it over the other generators 200 or so feet out from us.

As long as you bring the cells back down to 5.4v and store it in a dry place. It is good. It'll sleep for months.
