There's no reason to go blame, blame, blame or anything like this. What cells were it that you had? Some of the older cells of any manufacture would do that if not properly cared far. I have soem GP3300 long cells that still perform very well. Not to mention I've been keeping track of the mAHr that the cells have taken sense new and some packs have only dropped 500 mAhr. I know we are all intitled to our own opinion but don't come on saying they are ripless and blame Canada if you are basing this when you used to buy there batteries.

burbs,
wow. I could not disagree more. I bought a few sets for the Tamiya Nationals last year. They lived up to their name. I set the TQ all 4 rounds of qualifying. The mains were more of the same domination. "Ripless"?? No way. These off the shelf batteries sent my mediocre butt to Japan.

That was august 2004. It's 8 months later and those packs are still my best race packs. Granted, they are finally getting tired and the Reedy Race is coming up. You bet that my Reedy Race batteries will be Pole Position.

I can’t speak for them previous to May 2004, but the longevity of every Pole Position pack I’ve ever owned has been equal to if not better then any other matcher big or small.

The reason I keep using their batts are because I fell they have great punch. The first time they were in my car I TQ’d 19 at the Reedy, and they were off the shelf…in fact I use the same packs for practice now and they are still running strong.

Andre,

Nice to see you out here. Good luck at Reedy. Wish I were going, but rubber tires and I would not get along

The new JRX-S battery trays should be arriving any day. I will report back on the 3700's. Unfortunately I have not yet ran them due to the fitment.

Thanks again for the support and good luck...
