Default GP3900

Anyone have any information on these?

I know they are just stick packs but the fact that the cells are even available makes me wonder when the matchers will start picking them up for race packs.

I am guessing that they don't fit the roar requirements for the size of the cell, and that it would be too difficult to to make it smaller, as the 3700 is already at the size limit.

This is a stick pack and the GP part number is SCH which is there regular cells. SCHR is there racing cells.

Based from what we were told the current cell design will allow for 4500 mAh the IB3800 are already 3850-4100 mAh under a 35 amp discharge.
