Default 35 Amp Graded cells from SMC coming soon

Spoke with Danny today. SMC is putting the finishing touches on the 35 amp batteries. They got 60 new machines they are in the process of installing and will start matching all cells at 35 amps begining next week. The new cells will also be rated according to runtime now. For example if your a mod racer and need runtime the part number will be ____-MOD or for stock (High Volts/less runtime) ___-STOCK. And then there will be club level cells. It will make it easier to order batteries this way.

The 35 amp discharge rate seems to be working very well. It really seperates the good cells from the weaker ones. Which is great for the consumer. Team guys have been testing off and on for around 8 months with great success.

Just thought I'd share this with everyone....

P.S. And yes I know I am a team driver for them

Uh SMC isn't the first matcher to use a 35 amp discharge rate.

At least the first with a decent website and a company I'd be willing to purchase from!

Anyway, what kind of cells will the general racing public be allowed to purchase after the team members have their picks?

With Danny the customer ALWAYS comes first. Often the general public will find cells on their LHS shelf that are better than those the team gets. The good stuff gets sent out all the time!

"as usual danny sets the bar and the other guys limbo under! i give it 3 months before they all say "35 amps" "

I was just commenting on the fact that other matchers have been using a 35 amp discharge rate for awhile. I'm sure he is a great guy but there others out there that have good ideas too.

Danny and Steve at TQ are good friends. Danny tested the first cells at 35 amps last year and told steve about them. He then started doing the same but since Steve is a much smaller matcher (5-10 Matchers) than Danny (60+matchers) Steve jumped out and put them for sale first.

How would you like to be CE and get a call from someone telling you they need 60 T35 matchers NOW!!! LOL Id crap my paints!!

I know that at US Indoor Champs in Cleveland at least some of the SMC team guysy were running 35amp batteries...

Sounds like Danny was just making sure the bugs were worked out and that he was going to be delivering top-level product to the market.

TQCells may not have a flashy website, but I've been running a TQCells 4cell papck for 12th scale and they are nice and punchy and the price was right. I'd buy TQCells again in a heartbeat

I wonder what Danny is going to do for the Japanese Market.... were we need both voltage and run time for Stock...( 8 min heats in STock and Mod )

Hi Guys,

The New series is called "Pro Series"

and will be availbe iby the end of June. The Press Release just went out at the start of this week. Packs should be in shops by no later then Mid July.

these are based of the packs that we have used thoughout the year at races. Cyrul and Burch used these to capture the Snowbirds and Nationals.

We have re grouped them into 2 levels.

Stock- Highest voltage- lower runtime.
Mod- Highest run time- with the same or slighly less voltage.

I will post part #'s later.

P.S. Eric, you make us sound small with the amount of machines we have, that was a additional 60 machines. to what we already have. That is our second order of 35 amp machines

I was lucky enough to run 4-35 amp packs since November 2003 and they are still my race packs!! IN fact I just bought some new SMC packs last week to become my new rocket round and Main packs and my old ones will still be used for racing.

That for me shows the durability and longevity from the 35 amp packs.

p.s. and NO I am NOT sponsored by SMC!!
