No, I am just bashing, I would say I am talking drag times. 20- 25% better acceleration is very noticable. It means 20-25% on the "more fun" scale to drive too. Somehow I need to try my car with a high end 3300 battery. Is there anyone reading this that lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota ( I live in Bloomington) and has Deans plugs on their battery that I could bring my car over and try a fully charged 3300 battery. I will have to check with my hobby shop and see if they would have one I could try, but I doubt it.

I need to make a correction of a sort. I just got off the phone with a guy I know who was at a family reunion that drove my car with both different batts. He has an RC truck. He thinks the difference between the 2 is more like 15%-20%. I posted this trying to get a more accurate representation of my problem. I must be a fisherman, HEHEHE. it was a 15 lb.er

Well I did it!!!! I bought a set of GP 3300 singles of 1.17+ volt "matched." Would 1.17 +volt be considered a good high end battery or mid range? I will post on how much a difference they are from the cheapy 3000 stix packs. Now the fun part is how to get these things soldered up without a batt. jig. Any ideas?

You really can't compare numbers. Every company out there uses different methods of matching, and numbers from each company to another will almost always be different.

You will definitely feel a huge difference. That sounds like it'll be a good pack, and it will be noticeable. If you want to be serious about taking the best care of your matched packs, you should look into the new Novak Smart Tray discharger. It uses digital cutoff increments to discharge each cell to the exact same amount, equalizing the cells in the pack and keeping your battery ready for its next charge.
