I bought a pack and it came with 3 perfectly flush top cells and the other 3 cells have the PLUS (+) pole more less 0.9mm fowarded....
i bought this pack as new short cells roar legal.....but now i'm so confused.....

the cells are 1.162 and 1.163volts and based on your explanation i think if they are the new short cells i have a great pack.....but if not then i have a sport pack.....

my flush top cells are 42.5mm lenght and the other cells are 43mm lenght + 0.9~1mm (the forwarded positive pole), they're more less 44mm lenght....

wow.....i must remember to mention.....this pack IS NOT a fukuyama racing pack....
While I don't think you got a bad pack. You'd probably have to use two type of bars to make it look good. LOL.. in regards to the flush tops, those are the new shorty cans with a wider (+) top. It really doesn't matter who you bought those packs from but it seemed like the new stuff is really just as good if not better. We'er still testing them right now. Since they are matched, I'm sure they'll perform for you. Good luck.

Hey Dan. The 1.165 shorty's you sent me a few weeks ago have now been run four times each. I was going to use them for off road but they're far stronger than the 1.16's I was using for on road practice packs. Those older ones have now become my off road packs. I've found them to be very strong like you said. Anyone who's waiting on 1.17's, don't bother. You'll be pleasently surprised with the power from these 1.16's.
Yes! what boggled us was the fact that we can't really find a good explaination of this. Although the turbomatcher did not indicate any changes except for a lower voltage, but when tested on track, they just seemed awesome. While we're still trying and testing, here's my personal take on this but I could be wrong so this is not definate yet:

1. Because the turbomatcher's contact is rounded, the contact point on the cells are at it's minimal. While the newer cells have a larger contact area/button, it's output could very well be spanned across the whole surface of the positive tab. This may or may not be the theory behind the punch but sure as hell got our attention.

2. We're also testing these new cells with different type of battery bars. First with the widest bars to cover close to the whole surface of the postive tabs, then with the thinnest to see if there in fact is a difference in output. I'm suspecting that the wider bars will be better but until this is tested, I can't say.

3. We're also filing down the contact on one of our x-turbomatchers just to see if having a larger contact area will bring out the true voltage of these short cans.

One thing though, we're not afraid to test and try new methods and share what we've found through our testings so the public knows. So far, those that have bought the 1.15s and 1.16s are extremely happy with some telling me they have better results then their long cans with higher voltage.

Stay tuned:

Dan
