Sorry party wagon, I think the vast majority of racers on this site would disagree with you. A GP3300 is indeed lighter than an ib 3800. But, the 3800's have more than enough rip and top end to compensate for the weight difference. If you happen to look at the stock or 19 turn a-main at any recent big carpet race, you will see that 3800's fill the grid, with the occasional 3700's. I'm sure that this would not be the case if gp3300's were still the battery of choice for stock racing. You can get a decent set of new matched 3800's for around 40-45 bucks, which can be used for a variety of applications.
I wouldn't be fooled into believing that a lighter car is always better in off-road racing. In many cases, adding weight in certain areas of the chassis can improve the handling of the truck or buggy.
