I would say probably NOT the current crop of 4200s from the bad cell reports I have been hearing.

If you can run lipo or even li-on (a123s) at your track, go with those.

I would run the EP cells. They seem to be the most consistant and durable.

Listen to what everyone else said, and get some EP's. Those maxamps cells are alright, but will show their weaknesses when paired with a brushless system. For how much they cost, you're better off with a quality brand, such as EP, GP, and IB. I have had problems with my two IB4200 packs, but my GP3300's, IB3800's and EP4200's are performing beautifully. If you're on a serious budget though, pick up those 15.99 8-cell Tenergy 3300 packs w/ Deans plugs from allbattery.com, and rebuild them.

Yes, he is right, stay away from ib4200's. They do not last long at all, if i were you i would invest in lipo. You can get lipo packs pretty cheap now.

Any coments on the Intellect 4200mAh cells? I bought 3 matched packs to get me going with a view to buy Lipo in the new year!
I have only built 2 saddle packs so i can return the third if they are sub-standard!
