I put this post under the Team Power Push thread but figured I would add it over here also. I know the IB 3600's have been getting some mixed reviews but I think Team Power Push has them figured out. The cells are simply awesome!!
Well letís start out by saying this is my first dealing with Tony @ Team Power Push and Iím VERY HAPPY! I called last week to order a handful of cells to check them out. Upon talking to Tony he asked me about trying the IB 3600ís, which I was VERY hesitant about considering a lot of bad stories I heard about them going flat and/or not lasting long. Well to make a long story short he convinced me to try a couple of the IB 3600ís along with his 3300 packs.
Now do you want to talk about an awesome soldering job, Ohh my are the packs nice! When we talked he said for a few bucks he would assemble the packs and at first I said no thatís ok I do all my own. Then he explained his process and what he used, so I said sure go ahead and put them together for me. The custom made bars he uses are just awesome and make the packs a beautiful fit in my T4.
Well I ordered the packs on last Tuesday and had them by the end of the week, talk about FAST service! Upon opening the packs I almost died when I saw the IBís all had killer numbers, I actually think my lowest cell was 1.198v!
Ok now for the real test went out to the track yesterday for about 5 hours testing. I started by running a handful of 3300 packs and try to make this dang jump that has just been killing me. Usually I can clear it 2/5 times if I stay wide open around a 90 degree turn and hit the jump dead center. If not you end up lading in the middle of a huge table top and scrubbing a second off your time. With my Nitro car or even 19t itís not a problem but with a stocker and some slick dirt it seems close to impossible. Well after a couple hours I threw a 3600 pack in just to see how they would run and OMG! The first pack was FUN, although I had to tune the car a little for the added power. It was really unbelievable the huge difference, I didnít truly expect that much. Well with the 3600 cells I cleared the jump 4/5 times, I actually had enough juice to clear it every time, just need to refine my driving skills
Now I hear these packs go flat and all kinds of other stuff, well all I have to say is Team Power Push must have really figured something out here! I followed Tonyís instructions EXACTLY and had no issues at all. The guys I was running with all were running GP3300ís and they all dumped while I was still clearing the huge double! Usually with my 3300ís Iím pretty hard pressed to make it by the end of a run, if at all. With these dang IB 3600ís the truck just soared!
Needless to say I called Tony up last night when I got home and ordered some more of the IB 3600 packs. If anyone needs some good 3300ís let me know, Iíll have some for sale shortlyÖ
Now I think Vicky just needs to come back to the dirt and show some of these dirt guys how itís done
I know Wayne better ďHOLD-ONĒ when he tries some of these IB 3600ís in the Dirt!
Sorry for the long winded post but I was truly amazed and happy with everything I got from Tony at Team Power Push!!!
