Default Fukuyama Batteries.

I must say that the batteries I bought from Jimmy are an excellent buy and were very punchy today.I ran them today for the first time.The numbers I have on these batteries are not as good as some other packs that I have seen,but they perform as well as some of my 1.18 packs and they are 1.17 packs.The Ir #'s are low so pretty good punch.Anyways,thatnks for the awsome deal and look forward to buying more soon.

They are great packs. I have been running them a few weeks now, and have great punch with them. I run in the brushless class, so all of the motors are equal, the batteries definately make a big difference, and they have provided me with some great power.

I must triple this thought.

Fukuyama cells are absolutely killer. Unfortuntely everyone gets in the numbers game, but this is where Fuku shines. A Fuku 1.17 runs like another matchers 18 or even the sometime seen 19's. Their system is very good and provides optimum performance from each cell. The cells are actually read first before a zap or a Turbo Matcher cycle. They have done extensive research and invested a lot of time and money.

Anyone looking to try out a new matcher or in need of some new packs give Fukuyama Racing a try. Well worth the $$ and you will not be disappointed.

I have a link below to their website if needed. You can also PM Jimmy Fukuyama here on RCTECH....

Enjoy and hope you can get the chance to try some of these well matched cells.

Fukuyama did a rematch on some cells I had purchased from another advertizer on this board, all of the cells that I bought were supposed to be 1.17+, after the rematch, 3 out of 30 cells were 1.17, 15 were 1.16, and 12 were 1.15. Fukuyama doesnt advertize high # packs on their website, but their 1.15 is equal to 1.17 from another matcher. Give these guys a shot, you'll be very happy!

I know they are working on another batch, the problem is the recent batches of GP3300's have been very poor, and they have seen very few 1.17+ cells. If you do go with a 1.16 pack you'll still be very satisfied. I'm running a couple 1.16 packs, and a mixed 1.16/.17 pack and dont have any problems getting outpunched.

We have the 1.15+ and 1.16+ available. If you need the 1.17s, please PM me and I'll see what I can do to get you a few packs.
