Default Batteries and performance

First off, Ron I know what you're thinking, and yes I know you have to be smooth to be fast but.......................

I run 3900 stick packs at the moment and just bought a case of ProMatch IB4200s. Everyone tells me practice sticks and matched cells are night and day, but could someone please help me to understand what the benefits are over the non matched blah packs.. I guess I thought of this a little late since I already dumped 400+ in the 4200s

Thanx guys

Are they matched 4200's or just his left over unmatched didn't make the cut cells? If they are the later you are really no better off then when you had the stick packs.

Man when I was shipping the Pooky brackets last year in a padded envelope it was only around 5-7 dollars all over the world. I would always use the USPS for the shipping.

Just gave her a bath and installed the 41T pulley on the front. I'm thinking maybe my front belt is a little worn out. A bit too much slack in it.

It never really gets that tight since it is so long and it has such a big stretch to cover. I would not make it real tight, loose is better as long as you are not loosin the belt.

A good rule of thumb is to listen for skipping under hard acceleration and braking. For stock and 19 turn racing my front belt is extremely loose.

Myhre--I'm sure your belt is loose but I bet its not really worn out. I ran the same stock belts for 2 years in my JRXS. Although I do remember setting the belt tension for my buddy last week and his belt was also very loose. hmmmmm....I will have to check it out again.
