Yeah, I always do a little bit better with a car I can control. Going back to the Losi was the best thing I have ever done, it feels so much better with a mod motor than any of the shaft cars. The setup I use is just really easy to drive, dont need to push the car at all and it'll still be ballistic fast.

In pro mod yesterday I was battling with Pat, they announced that there was 30 secs to go, and Pat had 2'nd, I think my laptimes improved about 3/10 of a second on those last few laps, because I was throttle driving the whole 4:30 lol. I build that motor so it would be fast, but I was scared about making runtime, no signs of fading so I hammered it. It's great when yeveryone is slowing down and you still can OUT PUNCH YOUR COMPETITION

Default SOME UPDATES!

Hey guys! sorry I haven't been actively reading this forum lately. It's really hectic as we're trying to build our CET 4 and things are looking great!

Got some really nice batch we're working on so please stay tuned! Again, THANK YOU for all the support you've given to Fukuyama Racing! we really appreciate that and is modestly

As for Motors, we are currently working on some and all it needs now is dynoing before it hits the shelves. Please stay tuned on that.

Competition Electronic GFXs, we've got our shipment in so for those interested, please send me an email to : [email protected]

Its been another awesome month with sales increasing and some Awesome showings at big races by our Team Drivers!

Thanks.

Dan

OK GUYS,

My "Super Brain" 959, which has actually no brain has crapped out.

THere for this week I am looking to buy a charger for my Fukuyama's.

Im willing to spend up to $200 for a charger.

My Front runner is the LRP competion charger.

What do you guys like and think?

The LRP competition is the best one for that price range as far as I'm concearned. The Reedy is OK but I had one die prematurly on me so I have a bad taste in my mouth for them.

Don't forget to take a look at the new PitBull from CE.

The Reedy Charger is alright too, I just dislike the loud buzzer you can hear half way across the pits.

Take a look at the Integy/Eagle 16x5v6..best value for the money... or 16x7v6..built in power supply and 30amp discharge...

the Reedy is at the bottom of my list...I bought one and never worked properly from day 1... (even though it's made by Eagle..)

I've got a Indy 16v5. I still have it but it's my back up. The charger it's self is fine but the quality of the hardware sucks. The screen is hard to read and the setup button dosen't work 90% of the time and hasen't for a long time. It's stuck @ 6 amps and 54mv cutoff. Luckily it's fine for most applications. Plus I like the motor run in on the LRP

My CE GFX rocks...mostly with the mods. I would love to get another turbo 35BL or GFX to replace my quasar pro which I hardly ever use anymore because the CE GFX does such a good job. Maybe I'll get that futaba to replace the quasar pro. Anyone know the dims on that futaba? I've heard from someone it's a pretty big unit. Anyone confirm?
