Most things in the RC sport it's usually over HYPED like LRP VTEC cells

I was talking to my Gold Peak supplier & they have GP4000 cells in the warehouses. That makes things interesting?

The majority of the IB cells are already 4000+. Guess we will have IB come out with IB4000 shrink.

no,apperantly the amount of current they can dumpo under load is not enough.they will overheat.
thats what i been told anyways.

ib3600 can charge upto 3900,i dont no about ib3800,but they should reach 4000 easy.
IB will bring out 4300 i think in 2 months

First of all we have many customers and friends who deal with GP and there is no word of a GP4000 suitable for RC racing.

We do deal directly with IB and there is no plans on releasing a new cell. IB is constantly tweaking on the IB3800 which is already showing 4000+ mAh.

The mAh rating of the cell doesn't mean it's a better cell. Take the Sanyo 3600 for example it had a 3600 rating but the performance of the GP3300 was better.

i agree with you,but now it looks asif sanyop are out iof it,i think most cells are an improvement from there last,its IB VS GP now.,for now,and even if sanya did make a come back i doubt there cell will be good,

I have got me dead shorting problem dealt with (kept false peaking)

i use the novak dead short tray
it does cells individually but there is only 1 LED light, so i took it of that tray & put it on a lrp one & hey presto 1 cell still had charge init (quite alot)
so i make sure ALL the spring clips on the novak are touching

Now i have EA IB3800 going upto 4850 on the eagle, even the the normal looked after pack (non deadshorted) are going upto 4500 (just under)

only thing i see if the cells get more & more capacity
will we have battery`s size of house bricks & weigh as much as a car

We have said it plenty of times that deadshorting needs to be done very carefully. This is why I prefer the Integy 0-30 tray which is really hard to have a bad contact on due to the way it's designed.

done safely
this is why i went for the novak board. And now i have found it`s pitfall,
i just make sure they are connected now

untill this board came out i would`nt do it

i used to do it with the sanyo SCE1700 many years ago in off road(showing my age now )
take them down as far as we could then get a bit of wire or a resistor then pack them away till we raced again (week`s time)

there`s all ways a reason why things don`t work

you will get a higher capacity in the cells when deadshorting then say taking them down to 0.9v.yiou normally get 300 mah more froma dead short battery.this is because it also takes lon ger to charge
