Just use the charge/discharge reccomendations on the Fukuyama website and they'll work great for you.

Well, for mod it really depends on the runtime. The cell's runtime is based on 6 amp charge and 30 amp discharge but to gain a slightly more runtime, it is suggested that you charge it up at 5 amps. That would give you an additional 20 or so seconds if your short of that. But of course you already know that.

I was ripping a 9x1 for a full 5 minutes plus a warmup lap last weekend on the carpet and I was still coming off the track with 45-50 seconds at 30 amps left on my packs gotta love it

Finally, my Fukuyama packs have went over the big sea and landed in my mailbox. But my new charger havent arrived yet, so now I'm just sitting here, staring on those nice numbers... Imagine.... imagine.... imagine..... Have to call the LHS tomorrow, as soon as he opens, to hear if the charger has arrived, should be there....

What voltage cells did you end up getting and what charger did you order?

1.161-1.164 - both packs consistence of 1.163-1.164.

I've ordered the Robitronic Expert second edition charger:

By the way, what does the DT5000 and C/O 0,90 numbers mean?

DT5000 - Discharge time, 5000 seconds, some matchers use 200 to 300 seconds. Fukuyama uses 5000 seconds on their matchers.

.90 is the cutoff voltage for the cells.

Looks like a nice charger, make sure it's charging linear and with trickle charge turned off.

Packs arrived, I built packs, I charge packs, I tested packs, I love packs. Can't wait to race with packs.

Thanks for those great cells, they are all you said they would be.

Now I have my friends wanting to buy your cells now. Just spreading the love.

Kindest Regards

Hmm, I was running the same on the D6. Maybe the motor just draws more power...

I know how you feel, Cole, whe my first Fuku pack came in, I could've used it immediately, but I desperately wanted to start at just the right time so that it'd just start to run its very best when I made it to the Novak US TC Champs, so I had to wait a few weeks(& that was TOUGH!!), but man, was it WORTH it.......
