Well I am not sure what the epic 3800 is but as far as the IB3600 VS the GP3700 goes I say IB3600 all the way.

The IB cells are lighter with lower IR than the GP but has the same voltage and on average is only about 5sec less run time @ 30A

Seems Like These Companies Never want the Privateers to Kick the Sponsored Guys A$$es. Why I Like Nitro. But Since Brushless Is out That Is good (For Maintenance Reasons). All We need is halfway decent Sticks And they are in Deep Shift!!!!

The IB3600 is the smallest as mtveten said. A little longer than a GP3300-but a smaller diameter can.

The IB3600 is soon to grow 0.2mm in diameter. This is a technical change to allow for more room for the internal componenets of the battery. Theres more "stuff" packed in a IB celll than a GP3300-so its been a tight tolerance thing.

The GP3700 is a bigger, heavier cell. The IB3800 willl match the GP3700 in exterior dimensions very closely.

IB3800 will not only be longer and bigger in diameter than the IB3600-but it will also be heavier.

Hope this helps,
Ray

I have run the GP 3700 from Trinity in a few club races and they are the best I have ever run. I run 4 cell stock Oval on a very large speedway. It's a 4 min qual. and main. but with the 3300's twards the last min there was a slight drop off by a 2 tenths for that last 45 sec or so. With the 3700 it never dropped off.

Probably not. even the best packs fall of a tenth or so on a big track running oval. tenths are what win races

No I have no old packs. I start with a 7.1 and finish with a 7.3 on a 3300. on the 3700 I started with a 7. 1 finished with a 7.2 . All I'm saying is It was strong through out the run I never felt it drop off like the 3300's.( Motor could have dropped off that 10th from heat) So when I pulled the batter and discharged it I could have ran 5 min beforee it really dropped. Belive what you will I only post facts unlike most. I 'm not tring to impress anybody
