Default New Cells Advice Please

Having got Christmas sorted and still got some money left its time for new cells.
I race a Losi XXXS indoors on carpet mostly sometimes on slippery floor. I use a stock motor but plan to have a go at the new 19turn class in 2003, (doubt that I will ever run a hot modifed again).
What cells should I be buying????
Prefer Sanyo's as I have had some bad times with other makes but will consider others if there's a good reason.

Any advice gratefully recieved!!!!

gp3300's from Promatch charged at 5 amps are working great for me. I race the same pack all day long with no problems. I haven't tried the Sanyo 3300's yet but they seem to be up to the task and they have a higher voltage than the gp's in general. I went with gp's for the lower IR

I'll second that advice in 3300s. We bought three 4-cell packs from Promatch for our 12th scale and we never dump during an 8-minute race. We also just started racing 19t spec class and are using some old Sanyo 3000 HVs but will be buying 3300s soon.

Sanyo 3300s seem to have much more punch then my GP 3300s. The GPs just don't seem to be coming around like I thought they would. But truthfully you can't go wrong with either one. Just preference. The GP 3300s are cheaper though.

Since I'm a kind of budget guy (looking for most value for my hard earned money !), my favorite are Sanyo 3000 HV. Plenty of punch for my stock motors, yet they goy capasity for mods.
