So I've been told many times before
If these cells are even half as good as the hype suggests, then I can see myself investing even more in them

Hey Guys,
it has been awhile as I have been busy. I have recently started truck racing and am starting to get the hang of it, I'm a hardcore sedan racer, so a 3rd dimension of up and down was hard to grasp at first. Dan, thanx for those packs for offroad, they helped a lot!

Lack of grip dosen't help either does it? Have you been able to learn the in's and out's of mid air control of the car yet?

I would like to take time and thank Fukuamya Racing for another great order of batteries recieved!!! (1.17s) This was from another racer's observation of last night race scene. Man your cars are totally fast! In all the time I have bought batteries. I was always wanting the high voltage packs. But when I tell them I'm in AK. They always seem to be out of stock of high voltage packs. Fun!!!????
Not with Fukuyama Racing. I feel like a I'm part of a real racing team! Thanks Dan.

For your average racer this will be fine. Most racers can't tell the differance from a 1.16 pack to one that is 1.17. These guys have some good packs and a good price.

Well that is hard to say but they normally are getting the top 5% of the batteries from the company they run for. Those type of cells are not normally sold to the public but I have seen some 1.189 cells. Some have higher but then again remember this is only after going thru 1000's of cells to get these very elite few cells.

Well that would be up to them. You might be able to get a high 1.17 pack but after that your guess is as good as mine.

Yeah, just give Dan a call at their headquarters, can't guarantee you'll get 1.18's, but if he can Dan'll try his best to hook you up with something good(he certainly did for me for the Novak race in Janurary, & he's made me a believer)...
Oh, & Dan, I did finally get to run the newer pack I ordered from you a few weeks ago, & with it I was holding my own in open mod with my 19 turn motors(the others were using 10's, but only had any adge on the back straight, I could chew 'em up in the infield), & that's only after a couple of cycles. Many thanks again, bro....

We have a lot of drivers going to the Reedy race already so I can't guaranty what's left. Remember that we have just started to see 1.17+'s in the last few batchs so I doubt 1.18's are even out there yet in the short cells. I know I don't have any, but than again, I don't need them for the summer series because I just run mod. I just need high runtime But you'll be fine with 1.17+'s. Anything higher than 1.17's are very rare right now and the elite of cells and very rare (less than 5%) and saved to make up packs for sponsored drivers. They're not for sale at the current time, but contact Dan and maybe he'll pull that rabbit out of his magical hat like I have seen him time and time again.

John
