Jimmy was doing R/C R&D research in China and than Japan. Eventually that went sour and he met up with a great girl and he's been hooked on her ever since. I haven't talked to him in ages, most of this is hearsay through Dan.

JDXray, yeah...it's been neat to see what Fukuyama Racing has grown into! Jimmy had a great vision and Dan has done some great marketing of the product.

Jimmy Fukuyama and I go way back... Back when he used to run for Xray. I was made a team driver by Jimmy and Dan when the first cells started to roll out of their place in California, 2 years this month now I think..

Not to take ANYTHING away from Dan, but the cells sell themselves (Say THAT 5 times fast!) The products are incredible and Dan's customer service is second to none.
