Thank you for your response. Are you sure the test is at 5000 seconds and not 500 seconds (8 min 20 secs)?

What is your typical voltage for say a 1.145v to 1.160 cell under a 30A load at the 500 second point?

Thanks
it is based on whatever the runout time is. In this case, the default on the Turbomatcher is 5000 which means that setting at 5000 is exceeding it's full discharge and more therefore the the matcher will calculate based on the average of what the cell's runout is until the cell reaches .90 cutoff.

I run a epic monster with a 128/32 with the 1.77 internal (7.08) with 60mm foams and its very quick and punchy. I also run the C-hubs but very stiff (red springs front and dark purple rear, front sway bar vertical and a rear sway, 30 wt xray shock oil all around) With carbide ball difs front/rear this is an awsome carpet setup for me. It gives a lot of cornering speed without any push what so ever. Enjoy the Fukuyama cells..they'll be awesome. 6 amps is a good charge rate for stock, go 5 or 5.5 for mod to get some more runtime. Ask more if you have questions!

Happy Racing.
John
I see the both of you have meet. John, please meet Peter, Peter, please meet John. Both of you are great assets representing Fukuyama Racing. Keep up the good racing guys! I'll be back in the states in about a week or two.

Thumbs up Fukuyama Team Drivers

Guys,

1. I think I figure out what materials to use for brushes that'll rip the competitions apart! Also the lube involve to break them in nicely and snuggly to form on the comm.

2. Got some more crazy stuff coming your way for testing along with more toys.

3. Those who are still short on Omega Packs, please email Daniel with your details on upcoming events and he'll work it out with you. Got some extra ones I was told.

Again, I should be back in about 1 to 2 weeks and Daniel and I will most likely tour around visiting our guys and maybe I can start racing again.

Jimmy

No release date yet. We still need to further R&D it with our drivers and myself.

Welcome to the "TEAM" Peter. I have not been on here much this past week. Family issues!

Anyway, just wanted to say hey and let you know I am here to help. I am a carpet/foam tire racer from Ohio. I run for Fukuyama Racing, KO Propo, and Fantom Motors. If you need any assistance or have any ideas I'd like to hear them. [email protected]


Sooooooooooo. Did everyone just lay it down with their Fuku packs over the weekend? I had to take the day off, but next Sunday it is on and the following week is our first lef of the USTC. Oh yeahhhhhhh. Cannot wait. Will do my best (and then some) to make a good showing for Team Fukuyama Racing...

Take care,
The Robby Fukuyama~~

Thanks guys!
It is great to be a member of your team. Keep up the good work!

And Jimmy dive into those motors and brushes. My Trinity and EPIC motors are fine but they seem to have more and more delivery problems. I also heard that Fantom is having big troubles. Any news on this? I heard people were fired and shipments didn't got shipped for some time?

RBLove, what car do you run?

Peter,

PRS gears... Gotta love'em. I just got a bunch of spurs and pinions from Bigdogrc.


I run a TC3. I ran an X-Ray all last season and started this season with one, but got tired of ordering and some other issues. The TC3 is treating me well thus far........... I had a partial deal with X-Ray/Hudy/Serpent last season, but have since forfeited it.

Take care and welcome aboard..

Jimmy, that body turned a lot of heads! It was also very stable and allowed me to turn some really fast laps! I'm sold, sign me up for another 100
