Well I don't know what all the drivers used but all 3 of us on the podium used promatch batteries. You can get them direct from their website at www.promatchracing.com or from any of their dealers.

Trinity sells a stick pack kit that you can use to make your own pack from your favorite batteries. The kit should be around $8.

At www.promatchracing.com is it too good to be true?6 loose GP3300 cells for only $25? Then add on a Trinity stick pack kit and a Dean's plug and you get a decent GP3300 pack for $35!

Its true, but keep in mind the more expensive packs are faster. Neil, George and myself were are running their higher level packs in the 1.17+ range.

Well I think George was the only then some with those low to mid 1.18 packs, I was running 1.173 - 1.175 packs in the 430-440sec range and it looked like Neil had some 1.175-1.177 420-430 packs in his car. No matter how you slice it was still a Promatch 1 - 2 - 3 finsh.

Default a type, williams, f2001

not sure if this was discussed already....

is there a difference in terms of handling with each of the bodies?

if so, which body is better under which conditions? more steering?, less steering?

There is a huge difference b/w the Type A/Ferrari and the Williams bodies. Just the body/wing kits require different setups of the car. Generally, the Williams body/wing set is more aggressive, the Type A/Ferrari is more stable.

I was thinking someone could help me with this before I place an order regarding the FPM carbon cross brace system and the FPM aluminum rocker arm brace set:

1) does the carbon cross brace system include carbon rocker arm braces?

2) if not should I still get both? Which one will help protect the gearbox more?

Thanks!

I'm having a hard time finding the Ferrari livery. Looks like AMS is no longer making them.
