Knowing he's running these batts is good to know, and i will be definitely picking his brain this weekend in Indy. Thank you for your input, it is really appreciated. Yes the price is very attractive, and that could be the final decision point. I've owned about every batt out in the market, and the TP/Fantoms had/have been my best, meaning no puffing, good voltage. It's that alone i've been hesitant to switch, which is why i've been asking the questions. Again, thanks for the input.

almost forgot, how much longer is the sale for on the website. and are there plenty in stock?

I think the guys have given you a great summary. The TP/Fantom brand is good and they are both good companies. But I am naturally biased and would love to win you over as a customer. Give us a try...I know you will be happy. And too add, our packs come with a full warranty.

Exclamation Update on Short Packs

Update on Short Packs

I have received many PMs and emails on the next availability date for our short packs. I promised a date of December and then January. Both were missed. I did receive shipments for both timelines. However, I was NOT happy with either shipment. The performance was not up to my expectation and I was not comfortable releasing the packs. The main issue is that we are pushing quiet a bit into these tiny cases. So that is where we are today. I don't have a final date nor do I want to give out one until I see our next run of these packs. I do apologize for the delay.

do what you need to do to get the performance and product we have grown to know. you cant rush perfection.

Anyways. went up to Clint's home track Holeshot (user name is STLNLST) and is also a speedzone team driver.
i ran pro open sc. had a lot of trouble with my transponder not picking up my laps. sp i started back of the pack... drove my way to 3rd and was chasing down 2nd when nerves got to me and i started to overdrive my car and finished 4th.

Clint lmk how you like that 4300 35c pack.

You gotta try the chicken catsu. It's to die for and the sauce they give you to dip the chicken in is so good you'll stick a straw in it and start drinking

Gavin,

Are you going to have any more USVTA legal flat bottom packs in stock anytime soon? All you have in stock right now is the 4000mAh 30C Lipos with the battery bumps on the bottom. Those do not fit right in my car (XRAY T2R Pro with the XRAY 309860 Lipo chassis weight set installed, one set of battery bumps sit on the chassis edge).

Thanks,

Guys this is why Gavin's batteries are the best out there. He never has sacrificed quality to meet a timeline and I can tell you first hand that his standards are second to none!
I still regret making the change I made a few years back as Speedzone Batteries are still the best out there.
Gavin, you looking for any more off road drivers in the Northeast? I'd love to get back on board with you and start over.
