The Type B's are a harder compound, basically for warm to hot climates. Depending on the temp, it takes a few laps to get up to operating temperature. In a main event, those few laps can cost you a win. In our climate here, there is a mix bag of drivers that like the B's, and others that like the A's. Alot of it also depends on driving style.

I was measuring up some GP 3300's last night with calipers...trying to figure out if they will fit the f201 in stick pack formation, I see it being a tight fit length wise, has anyone tried>?
If its a real close fit I wont use the end caps...but Im not wanting to mod the car in any way to ensure its TCS legal.
wanting to build stick packs from some good GP's, to get best possible voltage.

anyone done any research as to which cells would be best suited to F201 tcs?..

my thoughts would be either Ultra Metals, or Gen2 GP's,

others have suggested Nicad's 1700-2400's charged at a very high amp rate, but me thinks the GP's and ultra's would have better average voltage through to the finish of the run. plus they can be run 2-3 times in the day, where as the Nicads I would need 4-6 packs.

give us your findings guys.

King G,

Are you running F201 now?! Do we have to guess which shell?

Have you fitted anything purple yet?

I'm running GP 3300 stick packs with no size worries at all. With end caps and plastic sleeve.

with the st 540 they take about 15 minutes to dump!

thanks wrx..

I wanted to be sure...

did you build the packs yourself??..

and to be sure, are you sure they GP ?..I wasnt aware of any matchers doing GP stick packs. ive only seen sanyo 3300 in stick..so I assume you built them yourself...did you use the trinity stick pack kit?

the problem I forsee is the length of the GP cell as the positive button on the cell protrudes, I measured one cell, and X 3 and I had 2 mm spare so with the end battery bar, and the joiners for the cells there may not be room for the plastic end caps to fit

There will need to be some suspension changes with the new arms.

Do your TCS rules in Australia allow you to mix and match different body and wing? ie Williams body with Ferrari front wing or vice versa?

I'd expect that you will need to run more dampening with the stiffer arms. That's what I noticed when I switched to the alum arms. Everything else was fine, though. No other changes were needed.
