I think they would. If you're going to be racing at a national level, drop the cash on some good matched cells. You'll be glad you did. Especially in 19 turn or stock. These classes are built around everyone having the same power from the motor (in theory) so one of the only ways left to get ahead or even keep up is to have some top notch cells.

I agree - with motors very similar in speed, the cells make a huge difference in 19 turn. What delta peak should I be using when charging at 6.5, 7 or 8 amps?? I'm using an LRP Pulsar

I charge for 19 turn either 6 or 6.5 amps with a 45 do 55 mv delta peak. Big races where there may be a lot at stake, I'll go up to 7 amps. Delta peak will depend on the ambiant temp. I race mainly out doors so a cold day I go higher to try and get the cells good and warm. Hot day like we've had lately, I'll turn it down a little so I don't cook them. Check the temp while you're charging and don't let them get above 145F. I like them around 125-135. Adjust from there.

We are currently trying to get our Canadian Dealer to carry the motors. If you know of any dealers in your area that is interested in our product, please have them contact us. Thanks for your help

i eventually got the packs but out of the delivery packaging.
Sorry, we are currently out of stickers. We are working on some more and these will be slightly different then the ones we had before. Please be patient and contact us so we can put you on our list of customers who we owe decals to. Thank you.

If you keep on coming out with such great products, soon the world will be over run with FUKUYAMA products.

Thumbs up Special Congrats!

Good News!

A special Congrats to all the Fukuyama Racing Drivers who attended this year's Florida Pre-World Race . Our team driver Chris Tosolini indeed made it to the Top 10 A finals in Modified beating out other world-class drivers. Also a Big Congratulation to Rafeal Angulo for winning the 19t Spec using Fukuyama Racing Batteries!

Be prepared to see more of our drivers in action at this year's Reedy Race of Champions.

Good luck!

Dan

I picked up a few packs of your batteries, and i have to say that i like them pretty good. Decent packs for a decent price.

The question that i have is about peak settings and charge rates. I am running stock class but I am not a serious racer. No big national events for me.... I am looking for the best charge rate and peak setting for the life of the battery. They have enough punch and voltage for me at any charge rate so what ever is best for the pack is what i want to be doing. Thanks.
