The only fade you'll get from you Fusion packs would be from your motor overheating. The assembly process is also what you're paying for, not just the matched cells and lables. I ran one of my mod sedan qualifiers with a Fusion pack charged at 8 amps because I was behind schedule on my charging , but I still made runtime fine.

I think if you continue to run your packs the way you are your Ok .. I would only cycle your paks if they have been stored for along period of time .. But normal racing should do the trick in keeping your paks running strong , just make sure you keep this process in mind .. Equalize your paks before there first charge of the day .. peak them just before you run , and discharge them after your run and let them cool naturally before you store them .... with this your paks will stay strong and give more consistant runs (depending on your driving) ....

Oh ok. Ive herad that if you arent going to run your packs for like a week you should leave them withthe charge left in them when youget done running. I gotta get a equalizer tray hopefully this week.
Thanks

Id get the novak smart tray .. It really does a great job .. also storing your batteries with some charge in them is a good thing .. just don't discharge down to zero ... but before your first charge on them at your next race make sure you equalize them ...also might want to try a reactor 30 for discharging your batteries ..

Ok so let me get this straight.. Before I leave well I know what to do.. Before I charge them for the day should I discharge them and then equalize them or just put them on the equalizer? And then after I run them before I charge them up again Ishould discharge them and let them cool etc?

Thanks guys

discharge them equalize them and then chare them up .. you dont have to equalize them before every run .. just that first charge of the day .. when you store them just discharge them let them cool and store them .until your next race day...and yes after you run them dis charge and let them cool ..

Default Some Props for Fusion

I got to run the Fusion packs I received in my 4 cell stock pan car this weekend for the first time. Man are they AWESOME!! I have used many other packs from other matchers and they work well, but the Fusion Packs kicked butt!! Excellent punch and no fade during the races. What they claim is true and if your skills are good enough you too can make the A main. Anyone looking for good packs should really give them a try.
