During your race day when you have already raced and cycled your packs down to 5.40v for 6 cells and 3.60v for 4 cells for the 1st time, instead of charging based on the above suggestion, try repeaking only with a peak detect of .05. It has proven to give you a slight increase in voltage and runtime the second time around. You do not need to discharge it down to 5.40v or 3.6v after this, just simply repeak again when the pack have cooled. We do suggest no more than three cycles per pack per day.
Is saying only discharge down to .9v per cell on the first cycle but do not discharge on any other cycles on the same day?

Yes,

You don't need to discharge it down to 5.40 unless you're planning to equalize it. What we've found lately just repeaking at .03 will do the same effect when the pack cools. Once you are done racing for the day, then you should then discharge and bring it down to .90 per cell and store it. The day before the race it is suggested that you equalize it. I've found that the GP likes being equalize the day before charge unlike the older Sanyo which is against it.

I bought some of your 1.15s, what is the difference between these and say a 1.17, what do the numbers represent?

The 1.15 is the actual voltage output of the cell, when you get the 1.17's, the voltage is higher, which will give you slightly better acceleration and top speed. Voltage isn't everything though, you can have a high volt pack, with high internal resistance, and it will be no better than a low voltage pack with low IR. Luckily Fukuyama has the CET's up and running, which gives high voltage, with low internal resistance for the fastest packs out there.

Default Too much power

I ran some new 1.17s last night and they were great on the first charge. I qualified second for the A main on that pack. Missed TQ by 0.2 seconds I ran a second charge on them in the main and it had way too much punch. If I would have known I probably would have geared up a little more. It took about 3 laps before the power settled to a point that I could handle, by then it was too late.
You should put a warning label stating.
"Warning: These batteries may have more punch than you can hande"

If you have to have a problem I guess that's a good one to have. I can't wait to see how they run in my brushless TC!!

Default New Ride

Here's my new body for the Toyota/Lexus Cup at the end of the month showing off my Fukuyama Racing stickers. I'll be running Fuku cells only there. Enjoy.
