Yes another VS thread. This will make for some great entertainment again.

IB3800 and VTEC3800 are the same cell manufactured by Intellect.

At the Halloween Classic this past weekend IB3800 were used to TQ and win all classes.

I'm pretty sure that Orion reps will stop by and say they prefer GPs and that is all they will use. It seems like they are the only company still using and promoting GP.

Default Battery Sizes

I do not expect this discussion will last long since it has probably already been done, so I will take the opportunity to ask something I have wanted to know. Are those new batteries the same size and weight? I know that the IB's are bigger than GP3300, and I think the GP3700 are bigger than GP3300, but are the IB3800 bigger than the GP3700?

IB3800 and GP3700 are the same size. The 3300 are 22.6mm in diameter and the 3800/3700 are 23mm.

I haven't heard people saying that they suck on the track...

You must need some more drama in your life to even throw that out there

Even if you *did* put a little sarcastic smiley afterwards

I used the Vtec 3700 and GP3700. No comparison!!
GP have better power, punch, duration!!
At the 4-5 minute marker the GP performs the same as the Vtec at 1-2minute!!

I don't care what others use and win!! I only now what I use, and how they perfrom when used by me!!

No comparison in favor to GP.

To tell you the turth I'm afraid to test the IB3800 as the IB/Vtec3700 where a waste of money! (actually I'll test them to have better view on the subject)

Barry ran a pack of GP3700's (at least they looked like it...they were pretty old looking ) In one heat race and ran well with them. He also ran some of the LRP Fatboy cells and ran IB3800's in the main and the other 2 heats that he had from Vegas.

Bobby Flack ran Epic 3800's, as you said, for his TQ and all other races.

There were some guys there running IP cells too....Not going to comment on them though...Ive caused too much trouble on Tech talk already
