The new cells are suppose to have mor run time and voltage. I keep hearing 1.2plus, we will just have to wait and see. If you want to really know contact Atomic Ron at Kinetic RC. Very knowledgeable and informative.

GP makes a specific shrink wrap for Yokomo, SMC, Orion, and now Epic. they're all the same GP cells, just the EPIC ones look like they were designed by my 3 year old daughter

I think she would have done a better job Matt. Just another marketing ploy by Trinity.

Lol! Did your daughter design their r/c ads too? Trinity has cheesy photoshop filters and drab photos down to an art form. Very nice for a 3 year old, not so nice for a multi million dollar r/c company. For some reason I picture Ernie P himself sitting at a Wintel desktop cranking these designs out himself

Regardless if the numbers on these cells hold true I'll be plunking down for 1 or 2 packs. Dam the Trinity marketing machine! Crude but efective!
