VTEC isn't the name on the LRP tires too?

So it's a company not just a name!

When do you think they hit the market?

VTEC is an LRP "brand" I think, not an independent manufacturer.

Thought I make a new thread for the VTEC cells, since we're in "a GP thread" here...

who says they are going to be worse than 3300s?

GP put a lot of work into the different generations of 3300s to get mah high and voltage high without sacfricing one or the other. im sure GP have tested and tested these batteries to make sure they ARE good. they will have very high mah (well over 4300 imo for matched ones) and a fairly high voltage (might not be as high as top whack gp3300 but it will still be higher than sanyo 3600..well i reckon so)

we only have to wait and see...480 secs and say 1.16 volts is good enough for me...like i said..lets wait and see

Like I said we will have to wait and see.I suspect good things from GP but with the carpet season already in full swing we probably won't be able to run these until next year,06.

Just like the 3300 first release, the 3000HV still have more punch.
For some people, additional runtime is always acceptable.

daniiz:

Are you kidding me
Have you ever measured cells???
With Sanyo it was always the problem, that
the first serie was ok, but than during the
normal cells manufacturing they could not
keep the quality.
When there comes out something new from
GP its always better!!

lol.... dude, daniz24 own a hobby shop and he is national driver for electric and gas car. He knows good or bad battery just by licking on it J/K

Someday GP3700 will beat GP3300 ( assuming 5 min. race and GP3700 drivers use 1 pinion tooth higher )

That doesnt mean squat, take off a 100 bucks and u get the normal street price for the team pack. They would never sell otherwise.
