depends on the quality of the cells. You probably didn't get any specs with them. most likely they are just virgin unmatched cells.

You have unprocessed cells. The big matchers will zap the cells to further lower the IR and increase the voltage and then go through and weed out any low performing cells. Odds are good the cells you have are just fine but they will probably not perform up the same high standards as a matched pack. For most club racing I am sure you batteries will work awesome.

How many cells did you buy? If it's a lot it may be worth your while to have them matched (graded) by somebody?
