I just got home from the track with some info on my new IB3800 i ran three packs today and this is what i found so far the first pack i tray to .0v then charge at 6amp with .20 peak the pack was flat not much punch that pack was 1.18+ v what i notice is with the pack flat and all it ran consistant right through the race and at the end of the race say about .30sec left in the race some how the pack started to pickup now this is my first time racing with the IB's so after a few runs it should pickup some, the second pack i ran with a .09 cutoff charge the same as the first and the pack felt flat also not much punch but was consistant right through the race, the third pack was the same but my cutoff was .06 but still consistant, next weekend i will deadshort one pack to see if it will holdup, my GP's 3700 are still my best packs next weekend i will see if the packs pickup for now i hope the best.

Were those the first runs on your packs ? It normally takes a few runs on the track for the packs to perform at there best.

When you say .20 peak detect do you mean 20mv which is .02 not .20 ?

Well I ran the IB3800's back to back in heat races today with 3300's. All I can say is it looked and felt like I had 2nd gear down the back straight with the IB cells in the car. I was able to pull one car about 15-18 ft on the straight with the IB's where as with the 3300's we were the same speed (same motor in both cars, same track temp and same setups). The IB's just plain ripped.

Im a believer now!!

Many have reported that it takes a few runs for new packs to come to life. Next time you race use your packs in practice and run them in the race. If the packs cool down for a few hours they will be ready to charge back up.

Seems like the IB3800 had a good weekend. Monti Panzeca set a new track record by 4 seconds at the Velodrome with his SMC/IB3800.

The EAMotorsports driver had a great weekend with EA/IB3800.

Hey all,

First cycle on the latest batch of IB3600's are good. I hate cycling my stuff-but I wanted a baseline ths time. At 35 amps-379, 7.04 and 13.3ir.

This was just first cycle. Now think I will run them on the track one time then deadshort them and cycle them again.

Pretty amazing cells. Just getting better all the time.

Thunder RC took 1st, 2nd, and 3rd with IB3800's in mod truck on Saturday along with 1st place in mod buggy.
In addition we also took 1st and 2nd in mod truck with the IB3800's this weekend.

All the IB3800 cells were deadshorted and we all had 150-200+ seconds of run time left at 30 amps. Our last lap times were just as fast as the start of the race.

The cells have been deadshorted for close to a month now with great success. Still plenty of run time and the cells have a ton of punch.

Hi guy`s (lucky lot) in the states

need to go back to school & learn about IB cells
they will be matched by EA ,but how have you found caring for them the best way
charge rates
cutoff
storing
equalising

EA has said they require a little bit different attention compared to GP cells??

just advice that`s all

Also need confirmation on weight
did ask this a couple of pages back , some things didn`t add up
(different weights) were being posted
IB are not over here
but got GP33`s & 37`s

33`s =62g
37`s =65g yes/no??


EA did say IB 3600 53g IB3800 55g
think he`s scales are out ?? either that or mine are

complete GP3300 pack 386 grams GP3700=411grams
