4) mod 1/12 (4 cells)

I charge the pack at 6amps for stock class, but I wonder if it is safe to charge it at 7amps to get more punch. The label on the cells says 6amps 1.171 ,...

Also, are your matched pack cells 1.17 or even higher. I suspect the Fukuyama batteries A main 1, 2, 3 guys are using have higher discharge voltage and longer discharge time than what are available on the market. Their cars have a lot more punch!
1. 6 amps
2. 6 amps
3. 6 amps
4. 5 amps

If you go to a 7 amp charge you will probably get your cells too hot and reduce their life. There's alot more to a fast car then just the best batteries and motors. If your drivetrain isn't free and your setup sucks you won't be able to put the power down.

Default World's Results

How did the Fuku boys do at the worlds? I noticed a few pictures of Tosolini's car with Fusion Power stickers on his car, what's up with that?

Yea Dan,

I check here every day waiting to hear the news. The suspense is killing me, Im not getting any younger ya know. You dont want that kind of guilt to carry around do ya? Just imagine for the rest of your life "Speedie died waiting for the punch" how sad that would be.

Patience doesnt seem to be working so I thought I would throw some guilt in there for affect.

Thumbs up Back from the Worlds

Hey guys,

Just wanted to drop in and do a shout out "Word up!?"

Anyways, had the greatest time at the Worlds this last week or so. Brought our Hong Kong Team Drivers to compete and managed to top 60 of 150+ World Class drivers.. This is insane considering I had two boys sharing only 8 packs of Fukuyama Cells running over and over again. Both Alan Yau and Derek Hung ran in same classes as the top Carpet guys along with some of the worlds best drivers and out qualified and finished reasonably high on the list with some awesome driving. Once I get settle in, I'm hoping to put up some footage on our site so you guys can download them.


Tmunno, Thanks for the kind words and it was a great pleasure to meet you down at Speedline. I will always remembered the hospitality you've provided for us. Again, thank you.

New stuff:

Well, we're working on that as fast as we can. They will be one of the coolest thing out shortly and your competitions will HATE you for it. Trust me! First batch will be available exclusively to all previous Fukuyama Racing customers, then drivers comes next. <Sorry drivers >

Regarding Mr. Tosolini's switching to another matcher, I have nothing to say except that I do Thank him from the bottom of my heart for the close to 1 year of running with Fukuyama Racing. He is indeed a world class driver and I wish him the best always. I guess his contract with Fukuyama Racing expires 1 day after the worlds event so we'll just leave it at that.

I will be back online more often to answer battery related questions once I get settled in.. Can you believe its already November? the carpet season has started, I'm gonna be a new dad in less then 9 days and our new exciting stuff will be showing up in our warehouse shortly. WOW!

Dan
