after speakin to some people i believe that run time has improved a lot obviously but the IR and AV are way below the GP3300.

I thought so too, but the first HS I saw with them had numbers of 1.18+ on them. Interesting. I know with the 3300s making a 5 minute main isn't much of a problem anymore, but if these are good, maybe 7-8 minute mains? That would be amazing.

Yeah, but think about the motors. . . they would be pritty hot. Runtime isn't much of an issue anymore.

They are one word "junk" Until someone can beat a GP i will always run these cells. The newest batch is the best yet.

Let me guess, Team Orion or Peak cells?
Their number are highly inflated and can't be trusted.

a guy at the track last sunday let me run his orion pack with 1.18's and I was impressed. he only charged them at 5amps and it had ALOT of power. i have to many packs right now to invest in a pack for my self but once one of my other packs need replacing ,i'll be getting one.
