Will the batteries be ready for racing on their first nights use?(on Saturday night at SoCal, or should I use them more, before I accually race them)

Then running the same packs for the Toyota race on Sunday?(or is this way too much running for brand new packs?)
Chris,

The batts should work fine either way. No worries about exercising them. We've done that for you already.

As for the shrink wraps, it's personal preference. People who run mod normally will not put it on but those running stock shouldn't have a problem and will protect the labels. I personally use to when I bought batts, but now I don't bother since I'll run it a few times and someone will mug me for them after a few runs. :sigh:

14s and 15s, sometimes 13s and I've seen twelves. RIR that is. I don't believe it can go lower than that with the current batch Gp's been putting out. They're exceptionally low as is already. although I've seen 10s on the 1.198s. But one cell in every 2k.

Randy, you have got to be the most luckiest guy in the world! When you called, I had already pulled my wallet out at the cash register but decided to answer the phone first. The funny thing is, the phone had bad reception at that point so I walked outside. LOL.

Yes, I have it and I'll bring it in the morning.

Unless you want me to mail it to you?

Thanks a million Dan! I've decided to get there at 6am, you might want to arrive the same time, those parking lot races fill up very fast...

Yeah, just send them to me via snail mail, I'm sure I'll get them Every time I ordered from Ultimate hobbies, the stuff gets here next day, but this time it didnt come in 2 days, and of coarse this is the time that actually matters...

Hello All,

Just want to share with you the fun we had from the first run of Fukuyama batt in HK yesterday.

3 different racers and 1 novice (it's me) had first runs on the Fukuyama batts with 1.165+, 1.170+ & 1.175+. We are very impressed by the power from the batt. As some guys mentioned before, the packs are so punchy that we need time to adjust our driving habbit in order to create a new rhythm in the race. After that, the exceptional power give us confidence and strength in the race. Really impressed!!

Maybe just a coincidence, one of our guys get 0.6s improvement (from 16.60s to 16.00s per lap) in the race after using Fuku cell . Anyway, we'll compare Fuku cells with different brand in the coming week. Let's see how is it !!

As a side story, with such good fun, we got 1 more race and left the track only at 3:30am instead of 12:00am. You know what my wife looks like when I was back home ?? I think you can guess what she is and what I am

Hope you have the same fun with your Fuku Cells as we had in HK.



Anthony

Dan, those tricks helped A LOT!
THANKS!
