Hey guys!

I do not want to be a pain, or some ass here.......and don't get offended here, these are just "Toys" I mean "Hobby Toys"

Like some of you mentioned, if you're taking perfect lap after lap, then you may see the difference, but if you have the best # like 1.18+ or even higher #'s, when you're racing at your club track for braging rights, (That's cool), but remember this, the person that do not have the good #'s that you have and he's taking good laps after laps, then he will beat you to the finish. And also if you do not take good care of those batteries, you will loose alot of performance from those good #'s.

I know this one guy, he has 1.13+ and the best he has was 1.15+ and he's beating the person with 1.17, and 1.18, and he even lap the person too. So just think about that for a moment. I myself have 1.098, 1.124, 1.13's, 1.15's, 1.16's, and 1.17's, and I'm beating a person that have a 1.17+ against my 1.13's, and I'm lapping him too.

Just take good care of your batteries, that's my .02 cents.

Nice dark picture Dave so we can't see your phat azz numbers.



Hello Milf

You know me. I don't worry about numbers too much except for lap time numbers.

Well, thats actually quite normal at 20 amp discharge, which im POSITIVE that those numbers are from. Just check out Integy. They have plenty of 1.23 and 1.24 voltage packs, keeping in mind, that they discharge at 20 Amp. A 1.8 average voltage pack at 30 Amps beats a 1.24 average voltage pack at 20 Amps any day. So your packs arent as good as you think they are.

Default Misleading Battery numbers

Guys;

I see a trend of Batteries being matched at 6.0 amps instead of the more common 5.0 amps.

In my opinion (and it's just that), this pushes the label numbers artifically higher. Thus the reason for the newest packs having higher number than say last years best batts.

Comments, opinions?

Actually, Everyone has been seeing higher numbers with companies that use the industry standard of 6 amps. One example = SMC.

The only number I look at on batteries is the seconds= MORE practice time.

Well if you run stock, Voltage and IR are most important.

True but if you don't practice at running your line, what's the point of having the extra power. It just makes it harder to drive that perfect line.

From what I have learned, the only packs that you can trust 100% are the ones matched on a turbomatcher. You can't change any of the variables on the turbomatcher to make the #'s seem any higher than they actually are. I am sending all of my packs in to Fukuyama to be rematched on a turbomatcher to make sure all of the #'s are accurate.

Actually, I don't see a problem in seeing numbers based on charging at 6 amps, since many of us are charging them at that rate anyway(like I do). And from what I hear, ProMatch is seeing voltage numbers just as high as SMC, & they charge at 5 amps for their testing, so I really don't think it's an issue.....
