Exactly what I said forget bench testing the IBs run better than GPs on the track.

Why did Orion send press releases that they will be offering IB3800 ?

Josh Cyrul and Ralph BUrch have bothe confirmed that IB3800 are extremely good in Sedan mod and they feel it might allow them to run an 8 turn instead of a 7 turn and go as fast.

YEA those two guys can take AA and still win any race.

@dodgeguy:
No, its precise the other way around.....
If the IB's would perform as good on the track as on the machine, it
would have been fine, but they don't.
IB's hate high amp draws, which you have exactly whilst
accerlerating, they warm up and thats it baby...

@Rick:
Right, GP RULEZ right now!

Markus please check with your source for IB cells you must be getting different cells than what we get. Guess the SMC team shouldn't go to Vegas.

In boat racig were amp draw is much bigger than car racing they prefer IB cells in drag racing they also prefer IB cells and so do the airplane guys.

Funny thread... Is this about "mine is better then yours"?

Sounds like a lot of marketing on both sides, I think both IB and GP do make good products and there should be no reason that one "camp" shows disrepect for the other or tries to make them look bad... not very professional from some guys.

But hey, it's fun to read...

I think it has less to do with "mine is better than yours" and more to do with a complete lack of respect for a perfectly legitimate product, in this case the IB cell. By claiming that the cell is essentially useless after one run is a blatant lie that only serves to inflame those that sell or otherwise endorse the product. If you must degrade the competition to get ahead, then I feel sorry for you. The bottom line is plain and simple: both cells perform well. If we feel we are faster with IB's and you feel GP's are better, then shut up and take pity on us for running an "inferior" cell. Why should you care? You should be happy we are selling a product you feel is not as competitive. I like starting a firestorm on the message boards as much as anyone, however I try to use facts to at least make me look like I know what is going on.

In our track testing we have concluded that the IBs have more available power than GPs. That is the truth and never have I said that GP are not good. GP has a great product and reputation. It just happens that IB has come out with a different way of making cells that seem to provide more power. Even if the difference isn't a huge one there still is a difference.

IB and GP packs are available for all so maybe racers should try and get one pack of each and figure out what works best for them.

@Danny
Ok, I will give it a check. Compared to others here, you are always very kind....

Anyway, I think customers should know whats going in the RC world.....
Thats simply our results with the IB's and Jack, I can say what I want, if this is what we can proove with our(!) tests...

@Reto:
Me or lets say we, are not interested or related to any of both manufacturers, we simply use whats best on the track, no matter if its GP or IB.....
