Dan,
I had Skipgear do some custom name stickers for me. I don't know if he can do motor stickers but it might be worth a try.
www.skipgear.com. He's on RC Tech all the time too.

Doesn't Skipgear just cut vynal though? I think Dan will need someone who prints the stickers, and they need a clear top cover so that the motor spray doesnt bleed the ink.

I don't know what all he does. The name stickers he did for me are cut vinyl though.

It's been a few weeks since I've been able to run my race packs. (A little unexpected) Do you think I should put them through a cycle before I race on Saturday?

Hi guys,

I bought 1.75+ batteries from Fuku and they are awesome. I'm from France and at my local track there is the second and the third of the french championship (touring mod), I made them try my batteries and they were very impressed. One of them is an official corally driver and he feels the Fuky more punchy than his corally batteries.

Go on this way and congratulation for Chris Tosolini.

Skip does cut vinyl, you will need printed vinyl for motor stickers..

Yeah, Skip does great work...

I have a local guy who can do printed vinyl...

I am so impressed with the professionalism you guys use to all, from team drivers to the weekend warriors, and your constant commitment to product service and customer satisfaction. No where else have I seen a company stand behind their product as you do Before I purchased a pack from you, I bought what I beleived was a good pack, Whip-Lash GP3300, after running both there is no comparision between them other than they are both GP3300 cells!!!!!!! You have earned my respect with your service and support, and from now on ther is ONLY ONE battery for me ...

FUKUYAMA
Great testimony. That's what we like to hear! I'm glad you enjoy the product and that you will continue to support us. We in turn will do the same for you.

Everyone...thanks! You guys make me proud being one of your Team Drivers.

Fukuyama motors are going to rock. The combo of the cells and motor is an awesome combination. I can't wait for it

John

just a thought (probably hard to find low end batts with GP3300)
Steve,

1.14's are hard to find now. Every single cell is giving us great results now. 1.16's and 1.17s are the norm now. Thanks for the suggestion though. But if you look at it, 1.16's are the cheaper than gp3300's 1.13-1.14 just one year ago! This technology has skyrocketed and that in part due to Fukuyama's CET technology. I was amazed to look in this issue of Xtreme RC mag to see that they were using a pack of matched 2400's with a price of 75/pack! Prices have gone down while the performance has increased....that's a wild thought!

John

Thumbs up REMINDER

Ok guys, not to sound like pushy or anything but just wanted to remind you that after today, our free shipping and upgrades will be discontinued. You do that last minute thing if you like. But we have to go back to normal to protect our dealers and hobby shops who are carrying our batteries.

Thanks for all the good testimony.

Dan

I read about the motor. You said that stock will be the start of it. Is this going to be a real stock (old version, 24 degrees of timing) or also the new 27 mod/stock? (like EPIC is going to release soon)

Good to hear you've signed Chris!!
