Re: Marc Reinhard, yeah, we all know it was his first time on carpet. Scotty told us about 20 times.

I was super impressed with Dumas. Sadly, it was like he was running a 19T HP-wise compared with Reinhard. If it wasn't for the fact that he had less HP, I believe he would've won.

You can get those type of cells right off our site www.teambrood.com

We match at 35 amps, so you will want a 1.190+ cell at 35 amps to get a 1.20 cell at 30 amps......

Yes we know his was his first race on carpet but it seems like its easier to adapt to foam than it is rubber.

By the way your friend Jack supplied tires to Marc.

HOW DO YOU KNOW?!?!?!?!?

Sorry Danny....had to.....

As far as the big number battery availability goes....Personally I picked up my 3800's early...and I'm being drawn to the new batch due to the unbelievable numbers being achieved...

Consider though...that the weakest of the matched 3800 numbers still seem to be better than just about 90%(no quantitative numers to back it up...just illustrating a point...could be higher..could be lower) of what was available 6 mos. ago.....

If you are they type of driver that was putting in flawless runs, had your motors tuned perfectly, and needed just that little bit extra....then the best of the best cells ARE out there....

For the rest of us, pretty much al of the new cells are going to be improvements over what we have been running

Nicely said. The difference in battery numbers isn't as great as most think. When Ralph Burch won the Snowbirds a few years ago we had actually forgotten to put his name on our list. When we realised our mistake we gave him packs that we had brought as spares. This were still good packs but didn't have the best runtime and voltage numbers that we had for that race. In the end driving and car setup is key and Ralph proved it at that race.

Danny you are correct in that the best is not always needed.

In 2003 Greg Nicklas used my SMC GP3300 pack to win the Midwest Winterchamps in Columbus, Ohio in stock truck. They were nothing special. I think the voltage was like 1.148 or so. If you know anything about this race guys like Brian Dunbar, Allen Horn, Jesse Robbers, Matt Francis. It was a great race to watch.

I think some racers like to buy the higher numbers because they think its a must and also great for bench racing. I personally would never buy the highest group because the small difference in voltage is probably not noticeable on the track.

It wasn't his first race on Carpet, it was his first foam tire TC race. He runs all the Carpet races in Europe, they just run rubber not foams. He's run 12th scale, so how hard could adapting to a Foam TC be for him?

No! Say it isn't so!!!!!!! Another 0.001 volts per cell has got to be at least 1/2 second per lap, right..........

I do not want to cause any more friction on this thread, but I have a question.

After reading through this thread, I have looked at Express Motorsports website and Team Brood's also. Thier batteries seem fairly similar in numbers and pricing. I also looked at Promatch and they seem to have much better numbers at much lower prices.

Is there something to this or do they just do that much more volume to allow better prices?

Brood matches their packs at 35 amps, while promatch matches at 30 amps. Basically, the same cell will have higher runtime and voltage numbers at 30 amps, when compared to 35 amps. Hope this helps

All of our IB3800 packs are matched at 35 amps.....by SMC (thanks DANNY!)....

The numbers will look lower.....runtime is easy to figure out, just take the runtime x 35....then divide by 30.....this will give you the 30 amp runtime. A 420 35 amp pack is a 490 30 amp pack...

As for voltage, there is not formula, but on average you add .015....

So a 1.195 cell would be 1.210 cell or so at 30 amps...

IR stays the same really...

35 amps is used to help weed out the weak cells and condition them better for high end use.

Our prices are very competive.....and the matching is done by a company with too many national titles to list.

The IP batteries are 44mm in lenght. Everyone else's is 43mm ( the international specs for sub C).Can't they build a battery to the international specs?
