Tubaboy, it's all good man.....It is very hard to be objective in the R/C world, in fact anyone who knows me will tell you one of my pet issues is aerodynamics in our R/C world, battery magic is the other.

I was just hoping you would give it a couple more tries and it sounds like your headed in the right direction!....Good luck at the races, Jim

Just received 2) 3packs of Fusion Batteries, and these things rock. These are my first matched packs. But here is one thing I can say, you won't find better cells for the same price; period. I bought the 1.185 GP3700, and comparable (if they call themselves comparable) matchers sets were $70 + unassembled. Fusion Power Packs came out to $63 /pack assembled + shipping. Now I have some awesome packs, while I am off to work on my driving... :-) Thanks Mr. Malin for creating a really great product.

I have to agree with Jim that the labels are pretty accurate if not better. I do have to say though that there was a kid at my track that was having a similiar problem with Fusion batteries stating that there was no run time and the volts were low. So I had him try my charger and it ended up putting an extra 1300 mah in to the battery and it was getting more voltage out of it. Then when he used his charger again it only put 2000 mah in and less voltage. Then when he tried a non Fusion pack and was able to put 3300mah in. There was just something with his charger that didnt like the Fusion pack. I myself couldnt live without Fusion batteries I tear it up at my track with them. This is just a suggestion it may work or it may not.

Good idea.

I don't have any issues with run-time. I run stock, and they have plenty of time left on them after a 5 minute race. At this point, I'm starting to wonder if it's all in my head. My PT has cut out on me in the last two race days now, and with different packs. The first time it happened has already been mentioned. On Sunday's race, it cut out at the end of the first qualifier. It didn't cost me any time, as it happened on my last lap, so I just yelled down to the race director to manually count my lap. I think the plug came loose in my receiver.

Man, I'm getting pumped for this weekend's race though!! Heh. Should have anywhere between 15-20 buggy racers this weekend. Just got a new driver's stand installed. We're now standing on top of a shipping container, putting our feet at 13 feet in the air, old stand was 5 1/2' tall.

12th Stock and Oval 19T this afternoon (if there is enough racers for two classes). One of the oval guys worked on my 19T motor for me so it should be good. You gotta like those 3700's, they are nails.

You can cycle them if you want ..its not a bad idea ..just make sure you equalize them first ... I do cycle them but only on the track so there is a load on them .. In my opinion it helps wake them up .... Have fun running the new power ..
