Default Indi Torpedo

Anyone have one of these Indi Torpedo from Integy? I bought one and was curious on what other owners of it had to say. Maybe some tips, etc. I just hope I bought something that does make a difference. Thanks for any and all comments.

I've got one, and I'm very happy with it so far. I like to put my car down at the start of a heat or main with the pack still warm, and it's tough to do that with a short repeak... with the Torpedo, even if I've charged the pack and it's had time to cool down, it's warm for the start.

Just hit the button 5 or 6 minutes before you're going to run and you'll be all set.

I used it this past Saturday and my car was a lot faster. I also hear that not to use them on 3000 HV cells...So, I didn't. Anyone hear anything different?

That's weird, what I heard was that the HV cells perform best when hot.

Of course, one hears a lot of things at the track...
