thanks,your so helpfull.
i may buy 5 packs of your cells for the new season.
iam in the uk and the uk distrubuter is cml,is there anyway i can buy some good packs directly from you as most of the good cells have gone eigther at the distrubution center on the shop itself.

We have an order for CML that should ship in a 10-12 days. The packs will be top spec packs so any of them should be real good. We work real hard at putting the best cells in our top spec packs.

You shouldn't drop them below .90v per cell. Follow the guidelines on our Charging section of our website. www.smc-racing.com

A loss in runtime that you cannot get back. Voltage and other things are unnaffected.

0.9 has been deemed safe by Danny and other matchers-so id go with that if your racing weekly. The idea is to pack as much fresh charge as is safe into the pack! You do this by getting as much charge out of the cell by traying to 0.9 and then on the other end via the delta peak setting.

I just picked up a pack today so I can use one of my other packs for practice.
They are 1.204 avg voltage with 1.7 IR and 400 runtime @35 amps. Are these type of numbers starting to be common, because the first 3 packs of the 3800s that I picked up were nowhere near these numbers?

A 1.204 is on the upper end of the scale. Most stuff is 1.195-1.203. 1.204's are not as easy to get. Each batch has been a little better but it is starting to level off.

97% of racers out there wont be able to tell a difference between a 1.195 and 1.205 on the track. They run so well and fast 1 mistake and youve lost everything extra you had.

I got my first 3 packs from you guys (EA) a couple months back. They were the factory team packs but were only 1.176, I see now that they are 1.190+
Have the cells from the manufacturer gotten that much better, or should I be mad at you guys? Also, is there going to be a pretty big difference between my 1.176 and 2.004?

You'll notice the 1.7 IR before the additional voltage...

I held off buying newest run packs, since my 'old' 3800's froma couple months ago are still SO MUCH stronger than anything else I had access to before...

I scrub enough corner speed with sloppy driving that I don't really need that extra .015V just yet....

the 1.20's are from the latest date code,I just picked up three packs of 1.22's (30amps) and will run them this weekend and can't wait to see the difference from my 3300's.
