Default SMC IB3800, Economy?

Hey, I'm new to electric and am wanting to order some batteries, on the towerhobbies site I see IB3800 matched and IB3800 matched economy, what is the difference? The details on each show the same stats.

I have found many of smc's economy packs to be just as good as the race packs and cheaper too.

You may want to check out the Promatch website. They have some very good deals on IB Packs.

The economy packs are the cells that didn't have the best of the best 'numbers' when they were matched. By numbers I mean voltage, runtime, etc etc. So they sell them for a bit cheaper.

The economy packs will work fine for practice or club racing, but will not have the same #'s as the race / team packs that SMC sells. With so many matchers out there these days, it is not hard to find decent packs for $50-$60.
