Default Quick battery question

Hey guys, I havn't raced off road in 10 years! (Losi race in '95 was my last!) Anyhow, my question is, Can I use IB3800's or are the GP's better? Durability?

Thanks for the help.

you can win with either, both are top of the line.

IB require greater care, 0.9v min, but costs a bit less.

GP can discharge to 0v, but costs a bit more

ALB-You can use either.
The IB's are like the older Panasonic 3000's in a way.You just had to treat them right but you got the benefit of a lil more voltage and lower resistance for better punch.

IB3800's VS GP3700's.
Ib's have more runtime,lower resistance,higher voltage and Cheaper.
Issue's?:Care is a lil more demanding but worth it.

GP's=Still a great cell and can be treated like a Nicad almost.

If you want a smoking deal on some IB's email me.
