Hey Fuku brethren. I had a great day at the track today for one of our clubs special Saturday races. My trusty TC3 wasnt so cooperative through the qualifiers. But in the A-main all balance was restored and me and my Fukuyama pack ripped our way to a 2nd place finish. Not too bad I think for being my 8th week only with a touring car. So batteries are supposed to fade off at the end of the race huh. Not mine, at the end of a 5 min main they were just getting warmed up. THANKS ALOT for helping me look like I know what Im doing.

Speedie knows RIP!!! Yahoo.....
Glad that you're liking the cells. Yeah, you would think that batteries are suppost to fade, but I NEVER had a pack dump in a 5 min touring or a 8 min 1/12th race even when I didn't have much time and only put 1/2 charge in the pack...my fukuyma packs felt and acted like they were peaked. Sometimes I wonder why I discharge and charge before the next race. I probably could not do anything and throw the car back on the track and win with the same pack I just raced with...LOL

Here's a pic of my Fuku Powered Fleet with their new skins. The one on the right was done by Charlie Barnes. I just finshed doing the one on the left. Didn't quite match the skills of charlie but My best work yet.

I think not. I've been asked a bunch of time by people at Family if I'll do bodies for them. I have a hard enough time finding the time to do my own. I don't know how the pros do it. That took me six hours last night and three this morning.

If I do my own bodies, it's a 5 min job with a rattle can... I guess that's why I dont do my own bodies...
