unfortunately they are out of stock!

Can you tell me the difference between matched cells and unmatched cells?

And what it means to me on the track....

thanks.

and yes, they seem to have a much better price 58.99 for the ep4200 with matched cells.

thanks.

is the EP cells. He is out of IB's and not longer carries those cells. The EP's are just better.

He has factory packs up in the store. He has more then that and are just not up on the site.

Contact Keith at [email protected]

He is the in process of updating the web site. All the batteries are new stock with the lastest generation cells.

He also has stick prices but I don't know what the prices are. EP4200 cells same as the matched packs but prebuilt as a stick with a tamiya connector.

It depends on who you are and your level of driving wether you will tell the difference between mached packs. Matched packs allow you to weed out the bad cells and to find the high performance ones. You are talking about % points better though. if you are a novice to intermediate driver save the money and get stick packs and use the extra money for tires and shock oil and track time. When you get better then you will be able use and appereciate the higher end stuff more. That is my feelings on it all at least.

Today I bought a 12v fan. Basically a 4" computer fan with a frame around the circumfrence. I zip tied it underneath a small stand I use for the batteries so the air pushes up to the batteries. It made a big difference in the mah the batteries would take. I use the ICE charger and today, the batteries would only get to about 106deg. Not even close to where I had the temp cut-off set. The temp inside the building was just over 90 but the humidity had to be right there also. We were miserable. But I noticed an improvement in the power of the truck. The fan was $9 in case anyone was wondering. I'm just posting some info. By the way, I have only been racing electric for about 6 months and it is very fun and relaxing compared to 8th scale buggies. IMO

Holy crap!! Is this place in the U.S.? And is that price for unassembled loose cells. I can't believe that. I noticed that they don't say anything about being matched or anything. But like I said above. i have only been racing electric about 6 mo. So I don't know how much of a difference a matched pack makes. I would like to know though. Where is their location?
