Default Which Cells for 27t Stock and 19t

hi all,

i have just started racing again after a few years out and i was just wondering what cells are being used these days, i am looking into buying a few sets to get me going again.

i always took it as that you needed to look for the best Voltage on the cells for stock racing i am correct?

what options are available and which manufacturers offer the best performing cells?

any opinions and advice appreciated

Thanks

Yeah you can't go wrong with any IB4200s. The voltages and runtime are so much greater then they use to be. Cells you buy off the shelf are not much different anymore then the cells the pros use.

Later.

You should be able to get SMC cells easily. They seem to do cells for alot of different manufactures.

As for volatgaes, look for 1.230 and up. All run times should be 420+ and IR should be 1.4 or 1.5 or less.

You really can't go wrong with any of the IB4200's. Regardless on who matches them(i.e. Rematch, Team Scream, Brood, Axiom, SMC, etc..) So basically whoever you feel will give you the best bang for the buck, and who you have had previous experience with. I would also try Ebay, as I know some of the manufactures sell their products there.

Default 4200's

If you are located in the UK then you must have heard of Team Almighty . I have been running their packs since the Novak race and have great success with them. They are a top matcher and have a great product in motors and batteries.

4200's the only thing going? Boy you got that right.
Just to bring a variety to the thread.
I really like the 3700's for stock and 19, very hearty batteries, they will take more abuse. I tried the 38's & 42's but they just did'nt have the punch for stock. Personally I think the 38 & 42's Are more for modified intended.
If they were to make a battery for stock I think it would be 3700's.
Crash is a wizard at this stuff so if hes got his smarty pants on he'll probably add to this.

OH and wallyedmonds Your funny. You have hit almost every thread tonight.
Right on.

Alot of club tracks allow li-po. Our local track does allow li-po and so far we have not seen a huge difference. But we have seen that a IB4200 charged at 7amps will out run a li-po for the first couple minutes then it evens out with the li-po.
