I recently stumbled across an interesting article on www.rcworld.ch
It was a comparative test by 2 World Class drivers of 4 different types of cells, on the same car, same track, etc. The findings are interesting.
The cells in question were:
Intellect IB3600 G Maxx.
GP 3300 SP2.
Now one of the testers was none other than Oscar Jensen - and he knows a thing or two about cells.
I won't bore you with details, just his summary comments.
INTELLECT IB3600 G MAXX. Had the most runtime on the label but less on the track due to lower voltage. Good competition cell.
GP 3700. Has very good power. Best battery for competition.
SANYO 3600. This and GP - you feel the car continuously accelerate. Good battery for competition. Easy to drive.
GP 3300 SP2. Is as good as 3600 if not better. Very good competition cell.
And his recommendations:
2. GP3300 SP2.
3. Sanyo 3600/Intellect 3600/G Maxx.
DAVID ALFORD. I don't think you were far off the mark. But of course he doesn't mention matchers by name.
I think I'll stick with my GPs.
