I hope that local tracks and clubs understand that a new cell that performs well at a competitive price is beneficial for our sport/hobby.

Many follow the lead from ROAR, and with them only producing and approved list once a year it realy slows the pace of devlopments...

i'm sure you've already submitted for special approval...

in the meantime some clubs are taking the lead and allowing these cells...I know our club is, as are many others in this area.

More performance (or even equal) for less price is always a welcome tradeoff

Chris at RCMadness was all over the new cells and they'll be run at his track. It's good to see people like that as well as Danny for bringing out the cells. I love companies that push technology instead of hide behind old technology. Excellent cells. After the ROAR nats I'll start changing over all my packs because I love the 3 I bought so far.

Default To shrink or not to shrink.

Hey Danny,

I have not been shrink wrapping my cells for years now. But lately I have been running different cars-some with no battery hold down bar so the tape ruins the labels.

Do you have a standard policy that you always should or should not put the extra layer of shrink wrap on?

Thanks,
Ray

I charged up a 6 cell IB 3600 for the first charge and they got super hot. 20mv 6amps

Then I discharged at 20 amps and they didn't get too hot.

Ray: I have never liked to reshrink cells since it will tend to trap heat. That being said i'm not sure if it makes a big difference after all we have proven that warm/hot cells run better than cold ones.

Pro4: What is super hot ? With a Raytech temp gun an IB pack will typically peak around 140-150 degrees farenheit.

Well-I guess its time to break out the heat gun and shrink wrap up a couple of my new IB packs and see how it goes.

Was at the local track last night with my new IB cells (unmatched)
Track owner saw them.. swapped me a brand new pack of Orion cells for one pack of my new IB's.

He hasn't tried them yet, but I am sure he will be stocking IB's soon, most likely SMC's as they already sell SMC GP's.

what ever happened to these cells being 'cheaper' then current high end 3300s...? or are shops price gauging due to them being new?

Our retail is 15 dollars cheaper than our GP3300s.

Just FYI-the IB3600 cell is a tick longer than the GP3300, but I put them in my 12L4 battery tray-perfect fit and in my RDX-perfect fit too.

they also fit perfect in all the losi cars as well. (on-road and off-road)
ran these cells last night. they perform great. as much or more punch than anything in my battery box. and at a lower cost.
