ROBORAT: The quality should be the same.

Corey: We have been using 6 amps with .05 for 6 cell and 6 amps .03 for 4 cells.

Hi Danny,

It seems that for GP 3300 cells you suggest a lower threshold as compare to the Sanyo 3000HV? Am I getting it correctly?

Thanks,

Keyence

Can anyone tell me the weight difference between a GP 3300 6 cell pack and a Sanyo 3300 pack. I would think that a lighter battery would be better for the 12th scale classes.
Thanks

Thanks dtm, I can't decide between GPs and Sanyos. I'm going to wait until the sanyos have been around for a bit longer before I make my decision (or I could get 2 of each )

Keyence: The GP cell will get warm/hot with a lower peak detect and charge rate. The Sanyo 3000HV needs higher peak detect to reach the same temperatures.

LouisB: The GP is 63g and the Sanyo 59g but the GP has higher capacity so this is one of the reason why it weighs more.

Dunno - BRCA Electric board rules suggest cells need to be submitted by end Dec to be legal from beginning april, so plenty of time for them to be ok by next season.

Thanks, my club has decided to adopt BRCA rules on batterys rather than making them up. The Guernsey Radio Control Car Club races all year round (outdoors) so there are plenty of cancelled meetings due to rain, it's not very big but fun all the same

Danny- Thanks for the detailed info on all of the new cells coming out. It will really help a racer make a GOOD choice in his or her packs. Keep up the good work.

STLNLST: I really like the web because it gives me a place to give my opinions on the various cells and to keep the consumers up to date.

Danny, from your testing so far would you recommend the GPs or Sanyos for mod touring car, mod 2wd buggy, mod 1/10th GTP and stock 12th? I use the same packs for all types of racing so they get worn out faster, but on the up side I can keep up with the lastest products rather than having loads of obsolete packs
Thanks

LouisB: I believe the GP is the better cell because it has lower Actual IR. So far they have been holding up better than any other cell we have ever tested.

At all the major US races our race team will be using the GP's.
