Your sprung Trevor.

You are not allowed to use these cells until at least September and maybe not even after that. So I hope you and any of your mates are not planning on using them. Oh and those 3600's that are in the Speedie Team are not legal either.

Darren, I know they aren't legal, I was just pointing out that the LRP cells had really good numbers on the labels, . Ivans cells arent legal either hehe, he bought them for the racing lines meeting.

Why rubbish ? is it all about first production things ? such as higher IR ( like sanyo 3600 did ), lower reliability, lower discharge amp than GP3300 ?

Here some thought : later generation of GP3300 can discharge 455sec ( just for example ) at 35 Amp. If I'm dishonest person, I could re-brand this product GP3700 but at confusing spec such as 485sec at 30 Amp. I hope this is not the case.

Trevor,
I know you know they arn't legal. Just keeping you boys in line.
Bit of a waste of time don't you think buying the cells for one meeting.

Yeah I know some people need to be kept in line, but most racers know the rules and stick by them. And buying cells for one meeting, I suppose if you've got the money, then why not . Anyway wouldn't you agree that the numbers on those labels are quite high ? Thats the first 3700 cell I've seen with a label on, so it was quite interesting for me.

Where are you seeing GP3300's doing 455 seconds at 35 amps.
I have some really nice 35 amp packs and they are just 368-375.The highest 35 amp packs I have seen is low to mid 380's.
Now they have been seeing 435-450 second 3300's again at 30 amps but not 35.
Please dont mislead people with this untrue statement.

The VTEC SC-3700UP cell (with the LRP stickers shown below) is not a GP3700, it's something completely new.

I know it's the wrong thread, but attached you can find the latest press-release about this cell.

reto,
so the vtec cells are manufactured by a company affiliated with LRP?
Would that also mean it's manufactured inside Germany or EU??
