@ Dan:

Hold one for me, I'll pick it up next thursday....

@ Anyone:

So how does this 3 step charge work? How does it compare to the standard linear charge? What advantage does the 3 step have?

I recieved my cells yesterday and plan on soldering them up today or tomorrow. Numbers look good and if they perform like the numbers 1.17+ 400+ I definitiely have a new A-main pack. From what I've read they should be awesome. Will Fukuyama have 1.17's in stock for a while? I notice they've been up longer than I previously have seen them. Oh, i didn't get any decals so I will have to hit them up for some on my next order
As far as the three step charge, I don't like it. I race with guys who use it and it doesn't give them much more and takes longer. It is a nice option for those who want it though.

Try going to the Competition Electronics website to read the instructions for the GFX charger. That way you get the description first hand.

I went and checked that out. I basically do the same with my Pulsar. crank the amps up towards the end. Sometimes if I am going to be peaked premature, i'll turn it down. That way its nice and warm right when I put it on the track.

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!!

Hey Guys,

Thank you all for your congrats, and I apologize for the late reply...slowly trying to recover from a weekend in vegas

my fiance (wife to be) actually works with me at Speed Tech, she handles all the accounting matters (we went to school together, I was a business major (entrepreneurship) and she was an accounting major) so it works out well that we both get to apply what we learned

Thanks again guys!

Steve Wang

Congratz. I know how tough it must be working and dating/marrying someone you work with. I did it for a while until I got a new job. Good luck to both of you.

Thumbs up 1.17+ Nice Batch!

Guys,

Just wanted to say, the latest two batches we've processed are truly awesome! Just in time of the REEDY RACE of Champion. These cells not only yield some amazing high voltages, the runtimes are also way up there. By far the best batch of cells we've gotten since last year!

Sorry, but we currently do not do COD orders simply because we've experienced some pranksters in the past.
