Nick, as long as you bring them down to 5.40v for your 6 cell pack, then it is fine to store them once they cooled. You only want to tray them before you charge them the next race day. You do not need to tray or equalize them during your 2nd charge. Hope this info helps.

Yup! that's me except that's not vodka. I would like it to be but as you can tell, I'm already hung over from the night before. JK. You'll notice Stephen is also there and Ray behind me. And of course there's my buddy Rob Love who's next to us wearing that Fukuyama Racing T-shirt.

Yea guys, do not be afraid of the lower voltages now being seen. These new short can cells rip. I dk what it is about the structure that changed, but they just let the juice flow right out of them.

Well I just bought my first Fukuyama Batteries and I cant wait to try them out.

In the care section of their site they say I should equalize the cells on a tray so all cells are at .90 volts before charging begins. , can anyone tell me how this is done?


Thanks

I like the Rayspeed. Novak has one coming out too. Not too sure if it's hit the streets yet though. I've seen a few of the factory guys with them @ So Cal. Looks like a sweet setup though. Just try and stay away from trays that take the vellc down to 0v. That's hard on the cells.

It really doesn't matter who you bought those packs from but it seemed like the new stuff is really just as good if not better. We'er still testing them right now. Since they are matched, I'm sure they'll perform for you. Good luck.

thanks dan.....

once i have the new cells can I hope a great performance like I would get running the older 1.72~1.78v cells (my pack is 1.162/1.163v, 410/411sec, AR 2.7/2.8)???

Good luck but no promises unless they're Fukuyama Packs.
