The guys at the factory told me they'll last for about 500 cycles. They have tested cells for over 500 cycles, but they told me the capacity starts going down from there.

Sorry to tell you but even the best 3300 dont cost more then 70.00 a pack and that even too expensive.Try more like 60-65 for a really good race pack.That is a big difference.How much could you put together that 4800 together for and how much does it weigh?If your talking about race applications then your gonna have to be very specific on all the details including actual voltage.If its emaxx owners your after, then I dont think there will be a problem.

Are, Panasonic, Sanyo or GP able to make LiPoly cells, perhaps they will be able to make Sub-C cells one day...
But i don't think it's good to use those batteries with Brushed motors, can't imagine I have to cut the comm twice a pack

I could have either a 11.1 or a 14.8 volts 4800mah pack that will weigh 10-12oz made. It would have the same thickness or it would be a little thinner than the usual nicad or nimh pack. Put two of the 14.8 volts wired in parallel (9600mah) in an emaxx with a brushless setup, it would be the perfect pack for long run times.

Does that mean that they can only handle 30amps max? 6-8 turn mod motors can draw over 150 apms.

Ha, I did a science project on amp draw and continuous currents using my old 12-turn, 80 amps when throttle it hit. and that was an OLD 12 TURN , I use 10 turns so I dont want to know what the new ones draw, I know it is way more than 30
