Yes, because other chargers (non-Competition Electronics) have ready based on the chipset which may or may not be as accurate as the CE. If they feel good, then there is no sense worrying too much about it. But if they feel flat for some reason, you can contact us and we'll be happy to take a look at it. Thanks again.

bought a couple of 170+ charge at 6 amps with a eagle cdc it`s got ir measuring counter built in they had around 6 charges in each,they get used once a week i do this,
get up early to go racing,
go to the meet
out come the cells & charger,real time 2 dis,
cells get trayed till the lights go out,of they come
cells go on charge @6 amps 5mv cut off
45 min,3650-3850 mah later,they are done not to hot not to cold
they get repeaked 2 min before my heat & race to win
i go home then i tray them till the lights go out
then get put away till next meet in a week
when i got the packs ,after 3 cycles the ir would measure between 28-35, but now they are showing figures of around 37-50 which is a bit disturbing .
am i doing somthing wrong,i need low ir
I'm using the same charger. I'm using an active discharger with 0,8 volt pr. cell cut off. I got two packs of 1.160-1.164. But my cut off are higher: 8 mV pr. cell.

I didnt cycle my packs before use. After 4 practise use pr. pack (3 days between sessions, at one session, I used them twice the same day), I choosed to cycle ones, just to get some reference data. The IR says 32 and 33 mOhm.

My packs peaks around 140 degree F. I think you should measure the temp, and maybe adjust the delta cut off for a little higher temp.

Sunday was my first race with my new Fukuyama cells and my new charger. I had THE race of my RC carreer (at least so far ). I screwed up the first heat, due to nerves. The second was good in terms of personal perfoming. The last heat was my best. In this heat I had a start, that felt slow, but showed up being fast. After the 3. corner, I was second. At this point, it felt like time stopped, kind of the Matrix thing, where Neo stops the bullets. Quite soon, it was clear that I couldnt keep up with the number one guy, so I simply kept my position. I was fast, but didnt took any chances - better safe than sorry. I ended up 2. in the A-main. I set a new personal record and beated my worst enemy during 4 years, for the first time. That's a great victory to me, since I've aimed for this during these 4 years....

Dan, when will Fukuyama make cells, that can make my HPI Pro2 break?

Hi Cole,

Good to hear from you. Good result! So it was worth waiting for them, right?

I also had a clubrace last weekend.
Got my new cells in right on time

I was able to set TQ and win both finals with a nice margin. The cells were really awesome. I was able to break my old trackrecord by 0,3 secs!

Dan and Stephen, thanks for the good cells!

Next week I will race in the first race of our National Series. Hope to drive a good race then.

Default my results :)

since everyone is posting results....

qualified third in stock sedan on sunday... i was pretty upset about that..i should have had TQ.. but my brain had beans for breakfast and it kept farting!

so i slapped in my "a-main imma beat everyone to the first corner fukuyama batteries"... by the second corner... i was in first.. clean start for the top 3 cars. eventually TQ tried to catch me but was knocked around by back markers and never caught up. it was too bad.. i wanted to battle because i knew i had battery and motor on him

second place was 4 seconds behind me. great feeling to win all because of my fukuyamas

Fuku's 1.17+ has propelled me to the P2 last weekend race!!!
Thats great for just my 2nd race with some very fast racers from other places joining the race.
Due to inexperience in preparing the car for final, flop BIG TIME in both finals.
Hope can get good results at this coming weekend race.
Wish Me Luck Guys!
