I plan on going to the USTC race at Trackside. Any other Fukuyama drivers planning on going. Maybe Stephen can hook me up with a Fuku motor to try.

I plan on running stock foam and 12th scale, since the rubber class is running TO 27's.

charged them at 5 amps, 50mv peak detec, with a 4500 limit on the yoke bcsd charger.

i run a tc3 with an orion core stock on some reedy 769's. can't wait for the season to start up here in the bay area.

gotta get some mo!
Thanks for the prop! I'm sure those batts will be even better after a few runs. Good luck.

I got a Fukuyama battery and ran 2 times,
now I think the next run will be 2 or 3 weeks later.

how can I keep my Fukuyama battery in good condition on next run?

what else I need to do before storage them for 1~2 weeks?

I would love to, but I don't think Saturday racing is an option (we fly in on saturday and with a flight leaving at 7:30 that means we'll have to get up a 4). Thats not a good combo since I haven't been getting to bed till after midnight lately and getting up at 5:30 am for work. Pretty tired right now.

I'm hoping for some good weather Sunday 2 more days to go till we're airbound

John

I tihnk wedding planning and racing in California are better than racing in PA right now and 100% better than work.
Another new car for Chris? I thought he was enjoying his Tamiya. I know he was doing well with it, what's the reason for the switch?

He wants to try a few different cars to see which ones he likes the best. He has a new TC3 he just picked up as well. He is going to keep that car as it seems to work on almost any track and any surface. That will be a backup car. He is really wanting to run taht new R3 Cuda he bought but the damn thing was shipping with no chassis so he has to wait for another one.

Fukuyama info page

If im going to be racing within a week I discharge and store. I equalize packs the day before I race and charge. Then repeak before race. If I charge more than once a day I do not re equalize.
If im going to store them more than a week I put one minute of charge into them before I store them.
