The numbers are so high because they are only matched at 20 amps. They are ok cells for club racing and what not. But if you wanna get serious look for some 35 amp matched packs.

where did you find these? ive had 2 integy packs of GP3300's (one of the cells recently went bad, but other than that they are ok), but the matched 30amp trinity batteries performed better

I have had a few packs from Integy in the past and I have to say I wasn't that impressed. For some reason they didn't perform well even fresh out of the pack. I don't know whether that is because I got some bad packs or whether it is a negative reflection on their matching process.

Recently bought some Integy GP's for offroad since my lipo's are not allowed, work pretty good for the money. I'd say club level and practicing/bashing is just fine. Of course any higher level of racing needs 30-35 amp matched packs.

Arent they out yet?? or is there a new GP4600 on its way??

Can anyone comment on the GP cells, anything you mostly hear is about the IBs. Been driving them 2 years now and I'm not very impressed, like all say, they degrade so much.
My problem is I wanna buy some new 4 cell packs for the 1/12 but its summer so when the weather is good I'll be driving Touring and these packs will just lay around.

I dont wanna buy packs that'll last me 2 months and having to buy new ones for the winter season.
So anyone, how do the GP4600's hold out in time?? Do they keep their voltage somewhat or is it like the IBs??

I belive the GP4600's are out in Europe, and Asia, they havent hit the US yet, but it should be soon, once they do I am sure all the big matchers will have them. I havent used East Power cells so I really have no formal input, but if they are as good as a couple people say they are, I have to ask why dont the big name matchers (SMC, EA, Orion, Peak) have them? As with any high capacity battery they are fragile, to be honest I wish the GP3300 were still the Battery of choice, they were damn near indastructable
