Only problem with motors is that there are always new stuff coming out from Trinity and Reedy so stocking a bunch of the cans might put me in the reds. LOL. We're considering some custom built cans from the existing ones since they can be definately made a lot faster.


Jimmy
so can we racers buy brushes from you ? if there good for one BIG race then thats a good enough for me

I'm down to two pairs only and still trying to figure out some stuff. Once done, you'll be the first to know and try out a few pairs. I'm waiting on my professor to come up with some lubricant that'll absorb easily into them so they don't wear down as fast while retaining it's conductivity. Really hard to do right now.

Please make sure you equalize them on a tray before solding them together because some of these packs were match specifically for voltage. Can't recall which packs you bought but rest assure, they're gonna be sweet.

Dan - I ran that new pack tonight, and it did have tons of punch I actually geared up a tooth to try and keep up with Steve's top end, and still had power in the corners! Thanks for the great packs

Oh come on...everything I have learned to be a sucessful racer I learned from you. Funny thing is in this last race it was an open race so because of the huge track we race on, people were running 11 turn doubles. Fukuyama cells combined with a killer setup, 1.77 xray gears and a 19 turn C2 proved it was enough to take the competition. They were a little faster running a 11 turn double on the straight, but they proved that they couldn't handle the power and always lost it in the turns. I was smooth throughout the whole track and thats what took home the win.

Didn't have a chance to build up my 2'nd pack, but I'll run it next week. Should give me 3 pretty good packs for racing, and the rest will just be practice packs.

On Monday I sent an email regarding some questions I have. I haven't yet received any reply so I post the questions to this forum!

What is the discharge rate you use when you match them?
What are the seconds on them (for each level) ?
What are the shipping changes to Greece?



Thank you



Nick

I believe Dan has directed you to our website and replied back to you on Monday eventhough it was a National Holiday in the U.S. but to answer your question, We charge the cells at 6.0amps and discharges them at 30 amps with a runout of 5000 second which by the way is the default on the turbomatcher.

Lastly, in order to figure out the shipping charge to Greece, we need to know how many packs are you planning to purchase so we can calculate the weight and what is the exact address as most poeple including myself have never been to your wonderful country. I'm sure the post office will ask us the same question. Please let us know and so we can promptly reply back to you your shipping charge.
