Well, as far as I know, September is when ROAR does their product approvals. But then again, this is ROAR we're talking about. Fukuyama's stance is why match cells that aren't legal to be used in any big races? The Reedy Race won't allow them in the open classes either. They are allowing them in the Invitational class since most of the drivers in invite are from other parts of the world where the larger capacity cells are legal. I know it's kind of a pain and I can't wait until they're legal and I can get my hand's on some.

packs worked great at the REEDY I must say even with the stress of this race. It is the best one in Cali

How did some of the other team drivers do ?

As did mine. Every run, even my older practice packs I had 60 sec plus coming off the track and that's running a br00d 7x1 Cobalt based. Thanks Dan. Sorry my results didn't reflect the great power I had in the car.

Hey Dan- Im gonna give you a call early this coming week sometime. Hood try at the Reedy boys, it is a very tough race from what I could see on the RClive laptimes. Looked like there were some brutal beatings going down.

Yes, Fukuyama is still in business. The website is not up and running yet. They've had some personnel problems and their webmaster is no longer with them so they have no one to keep it updated right now. If you need anything, you can call Dan or John at the office at the number at the top of the website. I see you're in Africa so you may want to Email them. [email protected] Please be patient during the transition.

Yes I am. 19 rubber only right now. Debating if I want to sign up for stock rubber eventhough I hate stock motors. But having never run carpet, I don't really want to have to run with the likes of Reinhard, Hara, Jilles, all the European guys who run mod rubber on carpet all the time.
