Throw a 5.75 and some Fuku brushes on it and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Has anyone had similar problems?
Yes, it happened to me with one, that's the arm delaminating(& Stephen & Curtis saw it for themselves, they were there when it did it). It can happen, but I think it can happen just as easily to any tuner's Monster-based motor. I'd suggest you talk to Dan about it, when I did, he immediately sent me a new hand-picked Mako to replace it(& that's been running likie a champ), & the other one I bought before is also still running fine(though it's still a bit soft in its midrange power, but it has plenty of top end). Just give Dan a call, I bet he'll do you right....

Yep, Curtis and I both looked at it. Dan hooked him up with a new one. I suggest you do the same. Had I had one with me I would have helped Bob out on the spot.

Hello

It is quiet on the Fukuyama front isn't it?

Poor old Dan has probably been snowed under with emails - My email included.

Just wondering whats happening, I was after some batteries.

It may be quiet because everyone in the world now know how good Fukuyama cells are now I'm tellin ya, when I go to the tracks, especially on road races, I see more of our packs in the pits than anyone elses. I've never had one person come to me with a problem that wasn't easily diagnosed. Remeber, If you're having any kind of issues with your packs, feel free to Email myself or any of our team members with your questions or just post them up right here. We're happy to help. Not just on batteries either. That's what we're here for.

While an old C2 could hang with a Reedy Quad.....the new crosswrapped version isn't even close.

More than likely you are setting up the Quad wrong and gearing it wrong......its not the easiest motor to use.

767 on both sides with Purple/Red Spring combo....align the hoods straight across from each other (it will retard the timing a bit).....and then gear it to the moon.

Later EddieO

that just might be as far as internet sales; I have seen with my own 4 eyes that they're definitely out there. I had my hands on them, I was @ a race 3weeks ago and a buddy of mine had them, personally given to him by a person I won't put on the spot like that.
I was just wondering if anyone found them on the net...

1.18's are very hard to come by. In all honesty, unless you're running at pro level competition, in which case you probably have a battery sponsor, 1.18's aren't going to be much of an advantage. The best thing is to get good packs and drive the car. The .01 sec you may gain with a 1.18 can go away by missing a turn by 3". Driving is still the biggest key to being fast.
