Markus here is a quote from the ProMatch website. Maybe it takes a long time for Europe to get the latest IB batches.


IB 3800'S ARE NOW IN STOCK. THE PREVIOUS ISSUES WITH THESE CELLS HAVE BEEN RESOLVED AND THESE CELLS ROCK! I HAVE PERSONALLY USED THESE CELLS AND THEY HAVE AWESOME RUN TIME AND POWER TO SPARE!

He Danny!
how is it going dude?

Well, first of all, I do not vieuw our experiences with both cells to destroy anybodys market. Man, Jack got pretty upset about all that
Thats simply what we and others tested also.

We had a brand new batch two or three weeks ago, one batch from IB directly and one from Vtech/LRP, which you know is exactly the same cell.
Both performed as I showed about in my statement.

Man, could be they ship different stuff to europe, who the hell knows...
But should we lie to our customers??
Take care,
Markus

Hi Markus all is going well. Having fun with all these debates. Josh Cyrul and Ralph Burch which have tested IB against GP prefer the IB on the track. Our TM4s also show and advantage to the IB cells not sure why your tests would be different.

I am only upset at the absurd claims you are making that could potentially mislead the consumer. Nothing personal. What company are you representing right now? I noticed you say "we" when referring to testing.

Well now that Pormatch is doing the IBs again I had to call in an order. The report I got is that the newer batch cells are showing increased voltage equal to if not better than the current GP3700s with lower IR. Track testing soon to come. I will report back next week with a comparison between the previous revision IB3800, new IB3800s and GP3700s next week.

Well it looks like the shootout on main street is going on as we speak with regard to which cell is going to reign supreme. At the moment I think each cell has a particular niche that each one is slightly better in. Time will tell which is the right thing to have under the hood soon enough.

My EA 3800's are awesome...... best batteries I've ever had. I now have bottomless runtime with tons of rip at the same time. I cant say that about my old gp3300's.

@Danny & Jack:
Well, once again, I do not want to confuse your customers, I am sure Danny
knows what he is doing there.

Have you tried to match the new GP 3700 series sometime???
Or do you only trust in IB?
I can remember when the first GP 3700 came out, there was a venting problem as well, so lets wait what the next series of IB will bring over here.
Sure, also Ralph and Josh know what a good battery feels like, but I can not see people winning bigger races with IB cells here.

See ya,
Markus

@Jack: I got my own battery label "Mobzappers" which corporates with GM Racing

Hmmm...
"I still wonder, why IB did not win the LRP Masters, Euros or any other major race here in europe, until the cell came out..... "

-Until the cell came out? What cell? Or did you mean after the cell came out?
