V+S= and V-S- are sense inputs to allow the power supply to compensate for very long lines between the supply and the load. For most folks, you just jumper between them (+ to +, - to -)

I'd highly recommend putting that one inside a case of some sort, since it's not designed to be out on it's own like mine is. Also, that will let you add a fuse and power switch (both on the ACL side, which goes to the narrow prong on the plug). Mine is only open because I haven't found a box for it that makes me happy. I'm working on it tho.

I'm looking forward to my packs and decals in a big way. My old Sanyos are so tired I only got 5 laps out of them before they went south, and my one pack of 2000s is false peaking like mad. So much for practice packs...

dpaton,

You are going to see and feel a big improvement over the Sanyo's. Welcome aboard the Fuku racer's...... Let us know how your packs run and if you need any advice on charging, etc.... let me know.

This may be off topic, but can 3300's be charged with a Victor Engineering charger? I would like to be able to use my Victor to charge 3300's. I would hate to part with it. I need some solid advise on charging new batteries with this charger.

Og Capone - I use a victor super2 iq. I have been using the "voltage pull" I set my mine up with anywhere from 5 - 6.5 amps with a 020 drop. You could go 030 but I have been using .020

I got my packs in 1 day... They came so fast, when i got home from work, I couldn't for the life of me figure out where this tiny package that had come that day could be from?! I kept thinking... "what the heck did I order?" Then I opened it up to find my Fukuyama cells!! I was like.. "WHOA! now thats what IM talking aBOUT!"

RCBuddah - You should see 1.15+'s back in stock soon.

Pdaton - Can't wait for you to get them, they rip.

Holycow - awesome, I know you'll like them. They assemble well dont they?

Minicooper - The Fukuyama team has awesome service. I'm glad that you're impressed.

Happy racing. Let us know what you think once the pack is run!

once your packs come in you should be able to rip for quite awhile.

you saw last night when my buddy and i were practicing....my 3300s from Fukuyama outlasted my buddies trinity cells bigtime.

I'm hoping to. I'm just sick of my old 1400s that dump after 5 laps (!!!!). Hence why I was in and out of the pits so much near the end.

Ooh...I see the FedEx truck...
