As for quality all I can say is if they keep pace in a 4cell 1/12 car they will definitely work much better than an orion rocket pack! And yes I have tried the orions-overpriced garbage-
Dude you drive a academy gv2 lol.

I could imagine. Continuity is nice. I just am not into academy cars. Locally there is one but when i travel i see a bunch of "hero's" with them.

I am pumped for the rt5. I really have no favorite brand.

I just noticed that Dynamite NiMH packs use the Intellect cells that people have mentioned quite a bit.

Would that be a good pack?

All my SMC packs except one[newer one is EnerG ] were IB cells and never had a problem . And I had 12 packs . You have to take into consideration on how many cells IB makes , there will be a few mistakes once and a while . Also user error can play a big role .

Thanks Briguy. I'm going with the Dyanmite packs. A couple of other guys have had good recommendations about the IB cell packs, so I'm feeling good about those. They're actually cheaper than Venom, and they've got to be better than Venom.
