Go to promatch and get some. Those look good but I would not trust it.

Nope. I remember reading a test someone did on "their own equipment" (MaxAmps garuntees 1.18 on YOUR equipment), and it wasn't anywhere close to 1.18. The tester saw mostly 1.17's and one or two 1.16's. I'll try and find the thread with all the research.

Or you could check out the link in my sig. I use nothing but RacedayRC packs and I really like them. I'm not sponsered by them or even getting paid to advertise for them, I just like RacedayRC packs!! Give them a try, you won't be dissappointed and if you order, tell them I (Yeti) told you about them.

I couldn't find the specific thread with the tests, but if you search "maxamps," most of those threads have very good literature in them. Read up.

don't buy from them. they took my payment and then claimed the package was lost in transit. they didn't actually ship me a product until 1 month after i placed the original order. then they claim i didn't try to contact them after i called their office (which nobody answers) and left about 2 emails every day. a week later some random ebay user messages me about the same problem. nuff said.

Care to explain? did you talk to them to straighten out your problems? I know for a FACT that they would not let anyone down, or leave anyone unhappy.

Doomah-I would NOT purchase packs from Maxamps.His stuff is the worst matched I have seen.Im sponsored and wont throw out a advertising for the company but will tell you that there are plenty of REPUTABLE companies out there with great cells.

kflabouris-Your obviously not a serious racer or experienced racer.If you were you would understand what the rest of the guys are posting.Maxamp packs are NOT very good and his #'s are in serious doubt.

GroffBall-Not exactly a good way to advertise for Eric.While Eric's batteries are matched by SMC which we ALL know do great cells knocking Promatch is no way to get Eric more buisness.
Jeff at Promatch is a great guy and does nice cells.He warranties anything he sells and is easy to deal with.Great Prices as well.

Pole Position,Smc,Ea,Promatch,Surge,Express,Lightspeed, Orion,Peak,Scream,Team Hack and MANY Others all do good cells.
If your racing offroad 1.16 cells are more than fine expecially for mod.
If racing sedan and your in the top 3 each weekend then 1.17's or higher would be ideal.
If your just bashing then I wouldnt worry about #'s at all but I would still buy matched cells.

Goodluck and if you need any info at all on batteries feel free to email me.

Hope this helps instead of mixing you up with all these PITCHES of people advertising.lol.
