newracer - let me know how you like the batts. I have thinking about ordering some. But I wanted to talk to someone I know who has run the batteries.

Later, Lee

Default decals...

yeps

i already have a few set aside for some of the other racers who are interested in the Fukuyama Cells.

we should be painting a few bodies in the next month....can't wait!


There might be an electric vs. nitro race this sat. so this will be a fun test for the Fukuyama cells. It's a tight track w/ not much of a straight so the nitro's can't pull away. With a nice 19T or mod motor and awesome cells it makes for a great race.

I'm sure I won't mine. I would like a nice fuku battery case. When do you expect to have some made. I keep asking Jimmy about a case, but he never lets me know.

Jimmy made sure I don't tell you when the cases will be ready. J/K Actually when done, we'll have one ship to you right away.

Default Thanks daniel.

Man,I was testing a new 23 turn motor today for our tracks super stock class and boy there is a difference between my smc and Fuku cells.It makes a difference when first you have think you have your gear ratio spot on then put in another pack and realize your still way undergeared.Funny thing about these 23turn motors are that they like being run in the 5.5-5.8 range.

This weekend will be fun!

I would like to thank Jimmy for hooking me up with some mad cells.

I came in 3rd just befind the 2 expert guys in last weeks race. And that is with driving with one eye! Seriously! On the 2 or 3rd lap, and I was right behind the leader. My right eye started to get irritated to the point that it filled up with tears and I couldn't open it. So I just drove the best that I could with my left eye. Jeez...what a race! I was one of the top sportmens, but now I'm competing with the experts. The batteries have worked wonders for me!

Here are some results. Look for George in the stock sedan class.

Ya John...Martin is just ballistic! God, he's in another playing field. Good thing he's going onto 19t and leaving us Sportsmans alone.

Default YUP

I think you should set it at .08 for 6 cell which would be .048 for the 6 cell pack or .032 for a 4 cell. Integy Charger?
