IB4200 by your favourite matching company. Something local would be a good start and see how they go.

The platinum 4800's from ORION.
Right now as far as I'm concerned, they are the very best investment for the club racer.
Any other purchase as far as batteries are concerned... If its not LIpo its a waste of money.
Research your battery purchase very thorough, sub-c is depressing wants you've gone LIPO.
Spend your money wisely.

If lipos aren't legal at the club level, then I would find a near by play ground.

IB4200 is the Best sub C cells out there, they have longer runtimes and more punch than the other sub C batts out there even more than the 4300, as far as where to get them that is up to you, I have Trinity cells right now, but I will be getting all new Team Checkpoint Platinums soon, it is all personal preference

I was thinking the same, if I am going to just do the club thing I should just go and get me the Li-Po, the only info I need is will the 4800 fit the Cyclone?

im not on the lipo bandwagon yet.... But i tell u every club race in the last 6 months has really got me thinking of the lipos....

The current IB cells are as tempermental as The old SCE and P170 cells used to be. Venting, overheating, delf discharging to zero... Is a full time baby sitting job these days..

If you guys just wouldnt be so stubborn about this stuff you would see that the EP 4200 cells are very durable. I dont believe there has been any venting, self discharging to zero or any of that non sense.

People are running them with very good results and not the problems and worries of the ib's

I really hate to admit it but Wallstreet is right about the EP4200's very good cells, can use a couple of times a day and non of the problems that the IBs have.
I know that Hurricane has them.
and also Kwik

Good luck in racing
and pick up some EP4200's

Ok, as always, the best is what you are getting beat with.
