This sunday was my second practise session with my new Fuku packs. As espected, they became more punchy. I used them twice today, and they were really good the second time. The charger also indicated lower IR at the second charge.

Both packs are 1,160-1,164 - but both packs consists of 1,163-1,164. All IR are 14-15 mOhm. However, one pack took 4100 mAH during charge, while the other was close to 3800 (first charges, after being on an active equalizer). The pack with 4100 mAH also feels more punchy (I havent made any measuring, neither on the track nor on the discharger). I follow all the recommendations, and both packs are treated excatly the same.

Both packs came pre-soldered. I'm using Team Orion Gold connectors. On the pack which is a little less punchy, one of the connectors might be soldered a little better. Is that enough to make this difference?

EDIT: I want to clarify, that it's myself, which soldered the Orion connectors. EDIT-END.

I'm racing stock with a P2K.

However, I'm quite impressed about how powerfull these cells are. And for a long time
I'm a little dissapointed, that nobody answered.

However, to answer my own question: I resoldered that particular connector, and things work as they should.

The GP cells already go above 3600mah. so maybe they should just relabel their cells.

I wonder about the IR and Voltage though. We'll see soon enough.

Next thing you know...Panasonic will come out with some 4200mah cells.

To answer your question - Yes, poor soldering job will result in poor performance. You shouldn't have to use much solder to get a good bond. I've seen it myself, and also in person with Dan, that my soldering is so good and strong that it actually broke the battery bar in half instead of breaking the soldering bead! That's a good contact with low resistance.

LOL - my fiance doesn't want my RC stuff. I guess it's the only things I would have if something happened to our marriage. It would suck, but on the positive side, I still get to play!! But I would have to sleep under my canopy

Well John. I believe Dan could rent you some space inside hes office if things really turn out bad.
But i don think it will happen. Ladies/woman/gals dont really understand RC and will never be jealous of it. If they do, then someone must have really pissed them off!!

I wonder if those will have the same high voltage and low IR that the GP cells do. Only time will tell

yeah right .. she might not understand RC, but she does get jelous and angry at all the time I have to spend working my cars/motors/building cells etc...

I have to limit it sometimes to keep her happy or she feels neglected. Which is understandable, but man...this stuff is really fun to me being an engineer working with my hands all day. (not in the bathroom)

I'm sorry, I didn't see this post earlier. But like you said you did answer your own question.

Fukuyama uses a patentented zapping process to enhance voltage of the cells. More information can be found on their website, www.fukuyamaracing.com. As of the cells themselves, Fukuyama matches GP3300 cells which every other matcher uses. The difference will be their excelent customer service, prices, excelent packaging which consists of a spec check battery box for storage of cells when not in use and they almost always include shrink wrap/decals in every package. Fukuyama racing also has 3 state of the art facilities and many many hours of testing to provide you the customer the best matched cells out there. Try them out, you won't be dissapointed!!

John
