had my fukuyamas for a few weeks now, fantastic bartteries and i just got my decals in the mail today !
mate ofm mine ordered another 4 on monday and another mate is ordering 6 in two weeks.

now, down to my reason for posting. just as a note to fukuyama. now im not sure it this is a common occruance or just on my batteries but before i even ran them once, straight out of the box, i had three battery joins that came unglued. two spots on one battery and one spot on the other. i had to reglue them myself which wasnt a problem but maybe you guys could use a bit more glue?

Thumbs up Recived my Batteries today

Recived my 5 packs today...... will be doing some Hard comparing between my SMC's(1.187) and the 1.177+ packs that I got today.... lets see if the Fukuyama's can hang with the King of the Pack.. 8min runs with mod and 8min runs with 23T stocks ...
I have a really good feeling about the Fukuyama packs. because I just charged 2 of them and I still can"t belive how much they held on the 1st charge


.. .. ..More to come tommorow..

-Dave

I think the testimony speaks for itself They're very good cells, by far the best cells for the money and the customer support is exceptional. You'll be happy with Fukuyama Racing cells.

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"
Too much power?! and you were asking me for higher numbers? yeahahahaha!

Bob
Really glad you like them. The reason that they ran better on the second cycle is because nimh are known for this. That's why Jimmy suggest charging them the night before, discharging them in the morning during race day and you'll have to ultimate pack during your races.
