right now the best battery out in every way is the GP 3300, their voltage is high and the runtime is awesome. Every big race that has been held since the GP's came out have been dominated by this cell and it's usually for a reason.
Get some SMC 3300GP's and you'll be happy with their performance.

Default GP 3300

GP is distributing a very good batch of cells lately. I've seen voltage of up to 1.179 per cell with 420 runtime at 30 amps discharge, 5.40v cutoff.

Here in K.C. the Sanyo 3300s are killing the Gp 3300s. All the fast guys are using the Sanyo 3300s. The GPs just have absolutely no punch. At least the ones we have been getting.

But that is here.

All the fast guys? ...not me!

I like the GP's, and I have had good luck with them. Ive heard the sanyo 3300's have some venting problems of some sort and no one will match them right now...I dont know for sure if this is the deal. I would like to try some sanyo's sometime.

Hey mistercrash

Where are you getting GP's with those numbers??? That quite a bit higher than anything I've seen including from the factory drivers... Please let us in on the company and store/track where you got them.


Thanks

Yeah, that's a new development for the GP's, the newest batches are producing even higher voltage than any earlier ones with no reported loss of the other performance numbers, so they should run even better. Definitely makes me wish I had the scratch to buy another new pack...

Yeah, I have had both and the GPs are by far the better cell than the 3300HV sanyos. The #s are almost still exactly whats on the label and I have 2 packs that are 8 months old. The newest batc of GPs with the higher voltage will be the way to go, plus they are waaaaayyy cheaper. I did notice a difference in punch once I started discharging at 30 amps. My 3300 Sanyos are basically paper weights now.

How about these numbers!
I'm talking from experience here and I just wanted to prove it to you. This is one of many packs that I have. I have Sanyo 3300's with high numbers as well, I have Sanyo HV's, Pana UMH, you name it I have had them all in high numbers and the GP's are the best cell out there.

Now that you've seen the numbers, which ones do you think I'd be running in the main?

BTW, this is not the highest numbers I have or have seen by far!
So imagine what some of the factory guys have!
