You've got it. Personally, I never run my packs twice in a day if I can help it. They do get a little faster but loose a little run time and I run mod mainly so runtime is an issue. If you're running stock, twice shouldn't be a problem.

Also I'd go witht the LRP comp Pro charger instead of the Novak. I like Novak but the LRP has the motor run in and the discharge if you need them.

Well i was thinking the same, but i got the GFX for discharging and motor-run in also. Why would i need 2? Also LRP only has 10 amp discharge.

That's true. I've been using the LRP for over a year now and not once has it flase peaked. I'll be getting a GFX next week as well.

I think i still might get the LRP since it is easy to use. I just liek the way it is set-up and how easy it is to get around for changing from different things. But the Novak doesnt seem that bad and it is around the same price and hasnt dropped yet.

Use the GFX to charge the fukuyama cells. They love that charger. If running stock, charge a 6 to 6.5 amp with a .04 peak detect, no flex charging or trickle and you'll really see those cells fly!

Running Mod, drop the charge to 5 amps to gain a little more runtime but keep the .04

sweetness. I charge them at 6 amps and .04 cutoff so i am in good condition, and hopefully these packs love the chargers as much as I do.

I do not run mod so no worries.

LOL - I resent that. I couldn't choose it, it's on my birth certificate.

Jkerr - send me a PM, I want to see what you thought of those new packs you got.

Jon Xray - that's what I'm going to call you from now on.
No, I don't distribute packs. But I've been with Fukuyama Racing since their conception and before so I like to keep active. Man, I miss Jimmy. I hope he's doing well in Japan.

What exactly is Jimmy doing in Japan? I've never had a chance to meet him. Just talked on here a few times with him.
