Daniel- It was nice to meet you this past week at the Snowbirds. Your packs are performing awesome. Tosso, Rob and Andrew had some bad luck but they surely had the rip.

Core Enhancement Technology (C.E.T.)

It is a common belief that a high voltage zapper can achieve a better number with the new GP3300 cells. The new GP3300 will actually hurt its performance if the core is over-zapped. Unlike other common matching process, Fukuyama Racing have researched and designed a “State of the Arts” cell processing and evaluation system known as “Core Enhancement Technology”. This technology will bring the new generation of GP3300 cells to the next level of performance. Out-punching all your competitions with an ultra low Internal Resistance yet, giving you the highest possible voltage within the cells threshold. This process not only fires a precision voltage enhancement boost to the core cells, but it also analyze its maximum enhancement potential allowing it to achieve a higher voltage yet retain a stable life expectancy. Not only is this the best way to enhance the cells, it is the only way to maximize the cells to perform cycle after cycle after cycle!

Hey Speedie,

Thanks for the heads up.

So you say the Fukuyama GP3300 are the way to go?


Thanks in advance for helping a newbie.

I just last year got back into RC. I have Tried a few other matchers packs and they were very good. You will be fast with almost any of them. But There is a real noticable difference with Fukuyama cells. The punch and runtime is amazing. A 5 min stock TC race wont even begin to stress these cells. Most times the fastes laps I turn in the race is the last 5 or so. By far the best cells on the market. And if you want to talk value just shop around check them all. Not only the best cells with the best customer service but the best price also. For a rookie that needs all the edge he can find here it is. Although there is no replacement for skill and experience Im still getting my butt kicked by a guy running old 2400's my car is faster but he never misses a line. Sorry to rant but the truth is easy to spill out.

Wow, I can't wait to get these batteries.

Thanks for the advice.

Now please forgive my ignorance again, but are there any "to do's" in keeping batteries or these batteries in great working shape?

PS: they only have the GP3300 1.16+ in stock, should I wait till the 1.17+ are back in or just get these?

Thanks

Iv'e been wanting to try out one of the fukuyama packs, but have been waiting to find a pack with equal numbers to the ones I currently have so I could make a good comparison....while over at the birds in one of the setup (hotel room) hobby shops I picked up a Fuk pack that I was told someone ordered but never showed for.....all 1.177's to 1.179's ,12's and 13's for the Internal Resistance..(slightly worse #'s than my best pro-match pack)...when I got home I equlized and cycled them,(I was pretty surprised) even on the first charge and discharge they're yielding better numbers than any of my best packs ever did.....even better than my best deadshorted with positive results 1.18 pro-match pack....so needless to say Im pretty happy with them so far......im gonna put em on the track this weekend..........I'll post after I run them.....

Great to hear this!

You won't be disapointed on the track. Do let us know the results.

I'd say just go for the 1.16's for now. They're still a good pack and if treated right you'll still get some good results on the track with them.

Thanks again for the support fellas. It was nice to finally meet you in person.

Sorry about the major choke in the main I cannot believe I biffed it like that. BUT, I had the power in the car to come back and pass a few for a middle of the pack finish.............


FUKUYAMA RACING is superior...........................
Right on brother! it's all good. You've only had that car less then a week. I'm sure in the upcoming nats, you'll be on the podium.

I couldnt have been happier than to finally met you face to face to put a face with a name and to find what kind of person you really are. To you and Mo Denton Thanks for putting the Cleveland thing to rest.
