Hey dude, send me the link to his page. Thanks. Oh, and don't forget to add the Fuku logo on there somewhere. I'm sure Frank wouldn't mind at all.

Im still waiting for him to send me the photos of all the bodies he's done, once I get them, I'll get to work... I got all of the custom images and stuff done though, that's the hard part.

I have a 5 bulb discharger, with just alligator clips. How can I add a "cut off switch" for some new gp3300's I got? I know I also have to get a equalizer too.

Tonight I had my first trial of my X-Ray T1 Evo2 and my Fukuyama Racing 1.15v+ batteries with a Trinity P2K Pro stock motor. It rocked! Everyone was wondering what batteries I was running since my run time was waaaaaay higher than anyone elses (we only run stock motors too )! The car had an amazing punch right up until it was about 30 seconds from going completely 100% dead (as in won't move at all). The curve on the batteries is flat out awesome.

And when everyone heard that I bought BOTH of my packs for the price of theirs that got some serious attention too.

And these are just the 1.15v packs! In a month or two I'm definatly gonna have to give one of those 1.17+ packs a try.....

If you get the 1.17+ packs you will be superfast .
In stockracing punch/power counts and not runtime so try to invest in the higher voltage-numbers if you can. If you're nice to your batts and train them well your 1.15 may even get a better after a fews runs.

Btw; aren't you wearing your motor out fast if driving those 3300's till they are empty?

Hey everyone........ I know that you guys mostly run touring cars, but I couldn't resist posting pic's of my Eastern Dirt Modified 2WD. The chassis is a Terminator by Kranzel's, and the body is by B&T Bodies. Motivation is provided by a P2K with 1.17 FUKU's behind it. Currently first in points at our track, which is an oval with a 98' race line, the only thing needed to complete the car is some FUKU decals, anyone know where I could get some.........

guys help!

i went to charge my Fuku cells up this morning, I dropped one onto my charger, it cycled and charged up to 3280 something, which i thought was strange so I cycled it again and it is now 2900, i was getting great numbers till now? i'll charge the rest of my pakcs and see what happens but this pack just won't take a full charge?

Cut of voltage was 8.89v but the pack was SUPER hot, like too hot to touch?

it sounds like maybe a bad cell If you have a way to check each one separately it would tell you the answer.
