Default What are the numbers on new GP\IB cells?


I m trying to catch up some knowledge on the new GP 3700 and IB3800 cells:

-What are good runtime numbers you get with 30 Amps discharge?

-I heard the GP3700 had a little better runtime, is it correct?

-I noticed high average voltage numbers generally means lower runtimes and this is true the other way around, right?

Also, with the extra runtime these packs offer Top drivers will be more often running 6T motors like Hara and Surikarn at the Asia Reedy Race so why didnt they run 6T at the Reedy Race in US?
It seems that not many drivers have switched to 6T yet, why? Are they still using the extra runtime with 7T 8T motors?

I just got some 3800's from DC Motorsports and had voltage ranging from 1.191-1.197 with resistance between 2.0-2.3 and runtime of 453-465. All these numbers are @30 amps with .90 cutoff and charge at 6.0 amps. Very nice cells.

You need traction to run a 6T. 7T's can be hard to control if you aren't good on the trigger. With a 6 or 7 you can light up all four tires out of any corner. 8's aren't as bad.

The GP3700 are the choice of the top pros. The early IB3800 had good numbers but were pretty poor on the track. IB seems to be improving all the time so if they aren't good already they will be soon. The GP's are still the safest bet though.

I just got some Fusion GP3700's 447-462sec@30A, 2.0-2.2IR, 1.180-1.189.

Thats good enough to have ~50sec left after a good run with a 7T.
