Your batteries are but one interdependent component that makes up a system of parts and equipment.
I don't place any faith in results when making my purchase. Have you ever seen some of the batteries that are run by factory drivers...I mean we are talking about the cream of the crop as far as batteries are concerned. 1.190 volts and etc. I believe that batteries make less of a difference at this level of competition because everyone is running the absolute best, no expenses spared, batteries. At this point it all boils down to the skill of the driver.
Don't be deceived by race results....otherwise your just being a sucker to fall for a company's marketing strategy.
burbs?

question...with all the talk of new cells. (mostly GP 3300's) i'd like to know if i can still get competitive 24oo sanyo's. the newer GP's are way more than i need. besides. i've yet to buy a pack of GP's with the RIP of my 4 year old 2400's. "TEAM", "GOLD", "ELITE", "PLATINUM">>>they're all just examples of what i've bought in the last 18 months. but nothing (as yet) has even come close to my zapper 2400's. can someone help me out?

I saw many packs on sale at ultimate hobbies of 2400 Nicads. Since I race stock class, I have been thinking about getting a pack to try. It looks like they are still available but I don't see them sticking around much longer with NIMH batteries taking a firm spot on the market. Not to mention other battery technologies that have yet to be released, who knows how long we will have NIMH?

I used to run 2400's, I finally gave away all my old 2400 packs last weekend. After 2 years of work, 3 of the 4 packs would still make runtime. They were great packs in their time(if taken care of) but Gp3300's are alot better.

If you had to pick from the current crop of 2400s available who sells the best packs?

The owner of SPC batteries was at the recent Indoor Champs. He spent a lot of time explaining to me their matching process and policies. I personally looked at graphs on his laptop that showed discharge performance curves for several different packs. The packs were all charged (6 amp) and discharged (30 amp) exactly the same. The discharge curves were over-laid on the same graph for direct comparison. The curves included 2, SPC, 1.170+ volt packs and 2 competitor's packs. One competitorís pack was rated at 1.182 volts per cell and the other at 1.191 volts per cell. The competitorís packs were from two different companies. SPC was very professional and would not name where the other packs came from, but he did say they were brand new when tested. I was so impressed with the test results and the quality of his assembly that I purchased 2, SPC 4-cell packs. SPC assembled the packs in the hotel using Niftech silver-plated bars. The assembly quality rates right up there with any automated, factory-type assembly I've ever seen. I know, I can hear some of you already, "How can hand soldering match automated soldering?" I don't know how he does it, but he does, the assembly is that good! We all know that hand wound motors are better than machine wound ones, so why not soldering? By the way, the packs ran GREAT!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you SPC.
So the spc batteries were better than the ones he tested? What were better about em?
