Default Bateries... again

Hiya,

probably the most ever heard question: which bateries should I get?

I've heard from a friend that the 4200's arn't very good... but he used to race GP3700... so how are the IB 4200s?

he means, that because of the higher resistance of a 27 turn armature, and the higher and longer lasting voltage of 4200's, the motor is going to get even hotter than ever before.

longer running on a stock motor isnt all that bad .. as long as you gear correctly .. The temp of your motor shouldnt get any hotter than the temp it gets while running in your Qualifying heats or Mains ....Just wears brushes and com's more than normal ...

I would get some GP4300's.
From my experiences (and others) GP cells are better and they have a larger capacity than the IB4200's.

Interesting comment.... I match batteries and from my experience with IB4200 and GP4300 cells, the GP4300 have about 30 secs LESS runtime than the IB4200 cells. And the same applies between the GP3700 and the IB3800 cells.
