I am even more sold on the IB3600 and 3800's after today. ONe thing I'd like a few guys to experiment with is to run once with GP3300 at your desired rollout-and then drop a tooth and run the IB's. I thnk you will go faster up front and carry that speed all the way through the run.

The IB cells provide more voltage but it seems like the motors are having a tough time keeping up with the power this cell provides. We have seen an increase of 20 or so degress when using IB cells. I think racers need to experiment with different motor setups to get the most out of the IB cells.

This was my second weekend with the IB3800, what i did this time i tray to .06v
and charge at 6amp the packs was much better than the week before i had one pack that was the fastest pack i ever had this thing was fast from start to finish now if i could only get all my packs like this one i will be unstoppable,
i never had a real good pack now i know why these teamdrivers always win there race, it's in the packs.

What kinda cycle #'s are you seeing on your 4 cell IB3800 packs?

I have 2 packs both with similar labels:
Pack 1 is shorted: 355, 4.75, [email protected], 8.8 (4.83 at 120 sec mark)
Pack 2 unshorted: 402, 4.65, [email protected], 9.1 (4.82 at 120 sec mark)
Both run similar on the track

I haven't seen too many guys cycle their 3800's yet, so I wanted to see what people on here had and how they compared to my #'s.

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
Mr. Jolly: The IB 3800 cells weigh in at 67 grams (that is if my scales correct)...That’s with a label and a extra layer of shrink wrap…

Curtis,

SMC IB3800 managed to do a new world record in 6 cell drag racing this past weekend. The drag racers who have been using the IB3600 and IB3800 have reported that these are the cells of choice.

Ok. I have a couple packs of 3800's coming. Anyone step charging them? I plan on using the CTX setup on Nexus Racings web site for 3800's. I will be discharging my pack with a spintec after every run. Not to sure about traying them yet. Both of my trays go to zero, so trying to watch the bulbs dim isn't going to cut it. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Thoughts on running the packs more that once a day? I have been reading only run them once a day, but I not buying it.

I plan to run maybe one pack for one round of practice and then let it rest until the main, and so on. That's how I run my 3300's. I think that would be alright wouldn't it? Heard the same things about 3300's when they came out.

We have had good success with running them 2 times per day as long as they have enough time to cool down before you charge them back up will be fine.

If you plan on running them in mod and you think you need all the runtime bring them down to 5.4 after your run and then tray them for 1-2 minutes before you charge them back up. If storing them for 3 weeks or more put 500 seconds of charge back in them for storage.

If runtime is not an issue try deadshorting one of your packs and compare it to non deadshorted ones. Many have reported that deadshorting works well.

For the ones that you don't deadshort treat them like the ones for mod.

Hope this helps.

Danny,

I finally built up my 3800's and ran them in stock 12th scale. Amazing up front rip and power through the run was great. I didnt notice any i'll handling from the extra weight compared to the GP3300 and IB3600's I ran first. The added rip much more than made up for any weight increase.

Ray
