Nosram-LRP 3700.....

One friend of mine has tested Vtec 3700 Nosram matched, and was very pleased. They have power and time!!!
Does anyone knows where i can find some cells?
(I know that my local hobby store has but i am an internet freak and like to order online!!! ).
I have tried ebay.de but they don't say secs, voltage etc.
Well?

Please, stay away from them, they are really far from good. You'd rather o for the IB's if you want cheap cells, of GPs for the best performance.

Not really, but this made me laugh

These cells were zapped and matched but do not meet our high quality specifications, although we are more than sure that these cells are better than what you have in your box.
Most matchers will have cells which dont have the top numbers, but do however have what you need, honest numbers which should give you good performance. Promatch do bundles of 3 packs, of which im sure there will be some around $100, i imagine almost all other matchers will do similar ones.

i have been using vtec 3700's recently and i can't fault them.

the punch is about the same as my promatch 3300s but they have roughly 30+ secs more runtime than the GP3700s are getting (from what i have heard)...30 secs don't sound like much but it could be a matter of a lap.

also, the voltage seems to be around .2 per cell higher than GP 3700s (GP3700s seem to get around 1.18, where as the vtecs get around 1.2+)

I have bought 18 cells from another guy at ebay like the one above.
About 15% less power from VTEC!!!!
I couldn't believe it.
Those bulk thing you never know what it is!

Thumbs down CRAP, RIP OFF, VERY BAD

I'm not sponsored by any of them like GP or VTEC..... But it's not only a preference, i had the chance to test and value them back to back this weekend and brand new........

After 3-4 ronds those batteries are crap ,really useless........ Very good punch when they are brand new but it's a wind of rip off....

My GP33 were better and they are 6 month old... and got more runs.....

Sorry to say that but i'm not the only one who gave them a go and took them off our pit box.......

Like TRF415BOY said, go for IB if you want cheap pack or go for GP37... whatever the manifactuer but better with a well know one..........

I have two packs of VTEC 3700s and have noticed a significant drop off in performance with punch and runtime.

They are great to start off but they loose all that after around 5 runs. Its like using non rechargable batteries... Bought two more packs or GP 3700s at something like 1.80 and i am confident these will last longer.
