Is it safe to bet that EP will be THE battery for this year?

As of now, they appear to be the way to go. The numbers don't look as great on the matcher as some of the IB's but their ontrack performance speaks for itself, and we don't race Turbomatchers anyway

That's where my money is - on Red (and Black)

The bottom line is helping to sort this out - It's not like anyone was making money dealing with all of the dead cells, bad packs, and irate customers. So, the only thing to do is to take a step back, and look at alternatives.

EP looks good right now.

For people that have to pay for their batteries probably, but I doubt that any of the big names (in TC) will be using them, thats not to say there havent been, but the IB's have won pretty much every race and class in TC the last couple years, if it ain't broke don't fix it. I will probably be picking up at least 3 EP packs for TC, then I will use my IB's for 1/12th, but once I get my Team Checkpoint TC1030 I will probably be running Lipos at my club
