well not sure about all of them but I know NIMH are a bit heavier than NICAD's. and there is 1.2mm in difference in diameter between 2400's and 3300's.

A few quick specs from Sanyo's website

CP1300SCR - 35g
CP1700SCR - 46g
CP2400SCR - 60g
RC3300HV (NiMH) - 65g

GP 3300s are around the 65g mark too.

So you can see a BIG difference in weight between the basic 1300 mAh NiCd cells and our racing cells - almost twice the weight in fact.

So, the next question that needs to be begged is, how does this amperage to weight data translate into power-to-weight? A linear increase in draw won't necessarily relate directly to RPMs or torque.
