bet ya will make time!

With 3300's I see no problems. Most batteries on the shelf are about 399 to 420 sec run times. So why would it be the same you have another 50 to 70 seconds of time. It will be mush nicer and actually level the playing field between the one's who have good batteries and those that dont.
You can only power up and use so much power within a 5 minute race.

I heard from team driver`s father at they did`t notice any difference (punch) with those 3700 cells vs 3300

Pancar cells absolutely, when you ever need runtime

Don't get too wound up about this cell or the GP3700 or that other new cell. The current rumor gaining steam is that they all come from one place

I have seen this picture at rcworld.ch



The label the battery has isn't very promissing

1.120 is VERY low

The second picture


is very confusing! How is it possible to have a pack with 1.120 and 1.199 together in a pack???

I think you got it wrong

1.19x is larger than 1.12x!!!
1.20x is larger than 1.19x!!

1.119 is very close to 1.12
1.199 is very close to 1.20

So having cells of 1.12volt is not some great to have!

elcid4300 have you looked the picture?

Would you like to that pack with some batteries having 1.199 and some 1.120???? Then what's the point of buying a matched pack when it's not!!

1.199-1.120 = 0.079 diferrence!

When we search for packs that have 0.01 difference the 0.079 is HUGE!

I didn't say the the 1.19 are crappy only said that a pack that has 1.19 and 1.12 is crappy and for sure not team pack.
Hell 1.12 is way low for any type of battery! I remember my 2000 had the voltage!

It is a .001 difference, practically no difference...check your calculator....and 1.19-1.20 cells are KILLER for voltage, not 1.12

I totally agree with that statement

1.199 is almost equal to 1.20 BUT the number on the picture says 1.12!!!!! which isn;t the same!!

Please check the picture! It says 1.120 NOT 1.20

NNICK,

After looking more closely, I see that your are correct. The label is confusing! It appears that there are extra ones before the voltage and my eyes just automatiaclly saw 1.19-1.20. Don't know if it is a typo or just how they label the cells. I guess to the letter, you are right, my apologies. Trade you a calculator for glasses!!

Don't worry I had the same confusion when I frist saw the picture and to be sure I did check with a calculator before posting!

I bet most people will not notice it that's why I posted it here hoping for some clarification from burito (LRP and Nosram is practically the same)

As shown on the below link:

http://www.rcworld.ch/neueprojekte.asp?id=1695

on the picture with the 6 cells it has 1,199 cells which are good and then it also has 1,120 cells which are bad.

I suppose this is what happens when you play around with numbers. I guess they fell in their own trap trying to make the cells look better than what the real numbers indicate.

I guess their intention was to type 1,200 but by mistake the typed 1,120.

Please correct me if I am wrong...
