Whahoooooooo!

Although, it's not so secret if you're telling us you're secretly working on something.

Just in time for some new cells. And Fukuyama is coming out with even better stuff. Wich is great but theres nothing wrong with my old stuff accept thier over a year old. I stored my cells over winter with just cycling them every month or so. Now that Ive run them a few times I cycled them again just to check them against when I cycled them when they were new. None of the packs were down in voltage more than .03 and no more than 25 sec in runtime. One pack was actually better on runtime by 20 seconds.
Way to go not only the fastest but the best bang for the buck also.

I don't know. Never built stick packs. PM Neil Rabara here. He's built stick packs for his F1 cars and will be able to provide you with a name or link for the company that offers it.

Default stick pack assembly

Danjoy25
I would just use the Trinity stick pack assembly kit. Part #5102. They are only $5.69 at Tower Hobbies. It makes a cleaner job..IMO

It's a very tight fit for the GP3300... but it will work..

Will you match the new Sanyo 3600???
I've heared that the latest bath were quite good.
What about the new GP 3500? Do you have a release date?

IMO, they 3600 werent a big deal for stock racing, maybe for MOD but 3300 cells can get 3600 mAh+ and are jsut as good. I dont think i will be getting 3500 or 3600 anytime soon.

I'll second the sentiment that the GP3300's are a tight fit in a stick pack kit by Trinity. I helped a new racer build a couple of stick packs at the Memphis TCS qualifier and it was tough. It can be done, but...

Dan would have to confirm, but I have heard the newer 3600's were better than the first ones, but still can't meet the voltage of the GP3300. Not to mention the super high IR's I've seen on them. I'm not sure if Dan has done any more testing with them though. He'd have to say for sure.

Default Somethings around the corner

Just FYI,

There may be a new company coming out with AWESOME 3600 that will rival GP3300s.. The voltages will be about the same while the Runtimes looks a lot better..<it may even come with a JOKE for Racers running current 3600, maybe LOL> As for IR, it could be the next new break-through.. Do you know what the name of this company is??

Please stay tuned while there will be a lot of major changes in Fukuyama Racing and we're out to take the R/C market by STORM again this time..

I'm so sorry I cannot disclose anymore about this.. Even our team drivers are unaware of the changes at this point.. But I will assure you that all those who supports or supported Fukuyama Racing will be EQUIVALENT to our highest Team Driver ^^


Cheers and stick around

Dan

That could be possible, if Panasonic decided to get back in the game(remember when they did 3000's, they had the edge in voltage & IR over Sanyo, but didn't seem to have an answer for the GP3300). Or perhaps there's an as yet unheard from manufacturer that's ready to play(much like Gold Peak did with the GP3300). We'll just have to wait & see(& trust in Dan's word that it'll rock, which is pretty easy to do).....
