Website looks great guys and man those are some high volts batts.

Jeff- you'd be vary happy with the Mi2. X-Ray is a good car as well but I have to say I'm more and more impressed with the car every time I run. As far as carppet goes, I haven't ever run carpet but from what the other team guys have told me, it runs quite well. They have the Teemu chassis that is thicker and more narrow for carpet. Also BMI is working on a chassis that should work really well on the rug. He's still in prototype phase from what I've been told. PM me if you have any questions.

Yes Jon,

The B-MI-2 chassis is still out being tested on carpet, but from I hear is quite good! Jason should release it right after his TC4 chassis that he just finished prototyping.

Man, we're going to have a motley crue of a class up there. I'm running Stock foam, Eaves is running 19T foam or Mod foam, and you're running Stock Rubber. LOL. We'll just call it the "Novak Class." and leave it at that.

Cool Stephen - Are you going to run the BMI chassis on the TC4? Jason really made a beauty of a chassis for the TC4. Good luck preparing for the Novak race.

Default New HQ Cells

Actually, the new HQ cells recieves a slightly lower zap and higher cycling process to displace a more evenly discharge curve. In another word, the discharge now will not fall off as dramatic as older cells given you even more *Feel* to the power. This is good since lap times don't lied hence if you drive consistently, you will have a lesser chance of seeing an increase of your lap time due to voltage fall off.

Another reason for this new process is that since (As a competitive driver), you can actually feel the power of the packs during the mid and end part of the race whereas the cells will have dropped in its performance somewhat. But in this case, you almost can't feel the difference from lap 1 or lap 25 with this new HQ cells. A good proof would be Stephen Sobottka during the Clevelands when he came off the track and had absolutely no power loss. When he took the pack down to [email protected], he still had 110 sec left while his friend's pack using someone elses process had about a 30sec left.

Also, since these new HQ cells aren't being zapped the HECK out off, most will experience an even higher increase in voltage after a few runs. This is good news since we're changing the old saying of "What you pay is what you get", yet these new cells will be "What you pay, is what you'll get even BETTER!".


Now, speaking of Bargains, we've came a long ways from a few years ago. Back then, quality was a key factor to the success of a matcher. Nowadays, NOT ONLY is quality important, but Prices are also factored into a racer's decision therefore we've totally revamped our website and our pricing structure. As you can see on our website:www.fukuyamaracing.com we've dramatically lowered our price to meet the regular and hobbiest racers as well, giving you the most BIG BANG for your bucks!. It can't get any better then that!

See now, you cant go wrong now. Good Job Dan and keep up the work.

the 1.16+ for 4 cells are already sold out, do you know when the next batch will come in? But other than that prices are very nice for 4cell and 6 cell. I think i will get some 1.16,1.17 for my Xray soon
