you should've ask the questions before you order

now that you have already placed the order, regardless of what other's opinion that's the batts you get, you will know how's the packs after you run it a few times

Im allways a bit wary of cheap cell matchers, what happens to all the cells that they buy and dont offer the voltages that they are selling to you. Dakspeed only seem to offer 1.17+ packs that i have seen. So what do they do with the tonnes of other cells. Im sure someone can clear this up for me though.

Dakspeeds are GP3300's so they're good cells at a reasonable price but what they're not is accuratly matched, unlike their add leads you to believe. They may well have a grading system but it can't be compared to a properly matched set of cells from companies like Fukuyama, SMC, PMR.
All their cells come with the same numbers, all reading 1.177 as a voltage, supposedly figures from a 30amp discharge, it's impossible for all their cells to be the same and those figures seem to have been chosen to make them appear good compared to proper matched cells real figures.
They've also said rubbish about having "better" rainbow cells, not the gold/green ones, for better high discharge properties, when everywhere knows there is no difference in the actual cells.

Same person, kind of....
Fukuyama cells are available from DC Racing and myself (I put the ebay adds up) Right now DC Racing is low on stock, only a couple 1.16's but contact me if you want more selection.
