I think they are using 30 amps. On some other packs they are using 35amps but I think those are team cells.

Stephen - Welcome to the team

Next year I'll be at the snowbirds with you guys

Hopefully I'll get to meet a lot of you on my trip to California in a few weeks.

Go Fukuyama!

If you're looking for Fukuyama cells in the UK then either PM me or email me at [email protected] or contact DC Racing
Cells won't be available for a couple of weeks from either of us (Dan- you've had your fun, now get back to work ) but I can let you know as soon as they arrive.

Just to let folks know, at the recent Scottish Indoor GP, which had over 110 drivers all racing stock tourers, a driver using Fukuyama cells placed 3rd in the B final after starting 6th on the grid. Thats with mid 1.16's on their second use.
I myself only managed the E final was in 1st from start to finish though, thanks to my Fuku's never dropping off, just never got a clean qualifier

I've been following this thread for a number of weeks now and if even half of what is being said here is true, then you must be doing something right! So i tought i would try some of your battery's. 2 weeks ago i sent you a mail, through the link on the Fukuyama site, but never got an answer.
Thing is, i would like to order some bats, but can't because they are out of stock. I do understand that you guys were preparing for the Snowbirds, so i'll ask you the same question again. Can I pm any of the Fukuyama guys or ca anyone give me a valid mail adress?

Best Regards
Hi,

I did get your first email but was truncated and there was no text in the email. Today, I also received another email and that too did not have any text in it. If you don't mind, please send it again. Thank you.

Dan

Maybe someday I'll be good enough to convince you to sponsor me. Sadly, this was one heckuva horrible weekend of racing for me!

Have a safe trip home!
Shane,

you are too kind The pleasure was all mines getting to meet you and chat. Thanks again for the excellent coverage and such an awesome forum!
