Since they make the largest volume, they can sell the best packs and always have enough cells for the races without sacrifying quality to the one we buy in the shops

At least they can save some money and re-use the 3 and the 2 zeros from the 3700 labels......

I know they say its better, but a 1.2v cell is not going much above 1.2v....because then it would be a 1.3v cell

I can't use all the capacity inside IB3800 even with 8T motor and gearing ratio of 8.00. The capacity left is around 900 MaH after 5 minutes race.

Tell me what good reason to buy GP4300 or IB4200 ?

It takes more time to discharge / charge the battery after race. I guess my time between heats or final is not much especially during big event.

much more punch, lower IR and using the first part of the curve gives higher voltage for 5 min

Price (for GP4300). You may not feel that you need to buy new packs right away. But when it comes time to replace the packs you have, it will be nice to pay less than you paid for your current cells.

The top level packs are MSRP $99.99. Since we sell these at normal discounts I think you may could see packs as low as $50.00. The demand right now is pretty incredible so I doubt they will be that inexpensive initially.

I can't speak for Europe or Asia so not sure what actual prices may be.

Thumbs up

OMG......this conversation is so funny......

Thanks that we are allowed to live on this planet since Team Orion/GP seems to rule it and all poeple, who are not following this leadership, can be happy to have at least some place to drive their "other" equipment.
I would suggest to all non-GP/Team Orion users to either switch the products you are using or be aware, that you will always be an outsider and never be able to win a race or even make the A with all that non-competitive crap of all other RC-car companies.

I did not find the "Sarcasm on/Sarcasm off switch" in this forum, so please feel free to switch it on and off for yourself after having readt the above....

And no, I donīt hate Team Orion poeple. Actually I do know many of them and their drivers quite well.... just thought the above would fit perfectly for this discussion as it has the same amount of information for the average rctech.net visitor as the rest of this discussion.

Cheers
Andy
