Hey guys, How are you guys like the Fukuyama packs still? Conversation has been quiet about them lately. Guess there are no bad things about them so that's a good thing! Anyway, is there anything that you guys would like Fukuyama racing to do? Drawings, prizes, group buys etc. Let me know and I can pass along the info and we can see if we can get something rolling for you guys, the racers!

Thanks for all the dedication and support!

John

Well, I can't speak for the others, but I've had no choice but be kinda quiet(at least competitively), since I was unemployed for 2 full months. And I'm still playing catch-up with my bills, so the racing has been on the backburner. But I am making progress again, & hopefully I'll soon be caught up enough that I can uncork some Fukuyama [email protected]# again.....

Well, the KO race was an experiance. I got to race with some of the top guys in the world and honestly didn't do too badly. I ended up 2nd in the C main in Mod sedan. Lost by .01 sec on the last lap. That was the difference between the 9x2 I was running and the 8 single Edgar was running. I should have motored up. Oh well. I still had fun racing with guys like Hara, Kinwald, Jun, Hodge, Hodapp and a whole list of top drivers.

No racing for me for the last couple of weeks, and the dry spell continues this weekend.

Racing next weekend, though. Last weekend before the TCS Nats.

What's up, Stephen? Long time, no talk.

Default Batteries going up

Hi all and Fukuyama, i have heard from another matcher that the GP batteries are going up by 35% to 45% that will be a blow to the racers because GP was the best for the less and now they are going up on the price so what is going to happen the matcher price is going up to keep up, well what are we going to do flow with the blow's, Fukuyama please conform if this is the so.

Maybe we'll all get lucky and the voltage and runtime will go up 35 - 45 % as well?

Don't believe every story that is trown out there. This is probably a ploy by someone to boost sales.

SP2

I´ve read something about the new GP's SP2.
Anyone from the Fukuyama team could comment that or explain what is the difference between non SP, SP & SP2
