That means nothing if they don't discharge with 3600-3800mah.

Im not interested unless they can give much higher voltages than what the GP's are giving at the moment, runtime isnt a problem for me.

Guys thats the scary part about this cell.90% of the racing industry has been spoiled by GP prices and will literally FLIP OUT when they see sanyo prices due to Trinity's rights.
Alot of matchers are selling 1.16's for $39.95-44.95 range.You wont be able to touch packs for this much when it comes to these cells.I would say with the cost of Sanyo 3300's compared to Gp's that same pack would HAVE to cost at least $54.95-59.95 for the new 3600's.
1.17's costing $59.99-69.99 will be $84.99-94.99 pretty easy.
Being the 3300 had terribly HIGH resistance and low voltage Sanyo has some work to do performance wise.If they wanna stay in the ball game they better be bringing out a cell thats close or might as well drop the R/C market.Their 3300 was one of the biggest failure's they have had in a LONG TIME.Use to be the industry leader and now has got beat by someone else.They are feeling like Panasonic right now.
Give us a cell like the 3000HV being durable like that cell was,high voltage like that cell and lower resistance than that cell and Sanyo will do ok.If they dont they are SCREWED because GP will simply answer this cell.
I welcome any new cells to the industry if they are GOOD CELLS.
If you get any new info Randy let us know.I am already talking to some matchers about Sample Cells.

Yes, I prefer extra voltage than extra runtime... extra cheap also a favorite

Sanyo can't compete with GP in term of price, so unless sanyo can produce cells 1.18v+ average and low IR(that means better performance),I will stick with GP. Or maybe the Japanese market wants higher capacity, they run 8min. How will GP responses?

Agreed - No voltage, No Buisiness

I run stock mostly so voltage is extremely important

It also sucks that Trinity is going to probably get their cells first so it'll probably be a while until the other guys get em (Promatch, Fukuyama & Kinetix) I'm personally biased toward SMC I get 1.17 packs from them at a the price of 49.99 & one of my racing pals is sponsored (I don't mind helping SMC give him 1.17s as long as I get some for a low price)

I'm sorry if this sounds like speculation.I think it's from the earlier thread about these cells a couple of weeks ago.
I've read that these new cells have 1.17 avg over 3600.Even for normal cells.
How cool is that??
