I dont see where people act like they are doing it out of the kindness of their hearts they just get tired of the same old "Battery matchers are evil...they make a fortune off of poor racers".....that's simply not true at all. If there were no "small" matchers you would be paying 100.00 a pack like back in the day when I started racing!

EA you are so right.

Everyone, listen to this man. Battery matching business are no gold mines and for the amount of spent matching batteries, the return is not very good at all.

I have heard that some matchers have already been testing these cells and they didn’t like them…I have heard they are IB in new shrink….I have heard that these are EP in new shrink…Hell I even heard they are GP in new shrink…I heard yesterday that a 100% team drivers mothers friend got the new cells and cycled them and they were no good. Well I can tell you for a FACT…NO one has these cells yet and they are NOT a EP or IB or GP in a new shrink…Period We are tracking them now via UPS and will have them hopefully today. Come on guys get the facts before spreading rumors!

Well maybe if you spoke the facts yourself and just admitted that they were rebadged grepow cells, rather than carrying on with this "these are all new cells, honest!" bullshit, you might not have that problem.

I can't say no names but I feel it is true any one person can call it what they want and yet it will be the same cell right?...unless smc and promatch make the cell rather than buying it from X maker ......I never said I know someone had the new cell's ..no rumors here

Call rctvlive and have the new cell featured on the show or have the owner of promatch on again and he can explain it that would be cool

There was some talk a couple weeks ago about doing a blip about matching at the Promatch shop. Kinda like a behind the scenes. Im not sure what ever became of it. Might be kinda interesting to some to see how batteries are matched and processed..

my question is why such a big push by all the companies to buy these cells right now when they will probably not be ROAR legal for Nats anyways? ROAR rules state that the submittal of cells has to be done in October and April. So unless some miracle happens they won't be legal for the onroad nats. So, why aren't the companies pushing more for the manufactures of legal cells to get more distributed?
