Hence why the site says to discontinue use immediately....

My first one blew up a brand new pack (which Reedy was nice enough to replace) and when the new one they sent me started acting funny I just ditched it for a couple of Novaks. They rock, just wish it had a discharge on it.

Any time guys. That's what we're here for. I know when I first started I learned a lot from people on this forum and now that I'm able to help people out, I'm glad to do so.

Default Real world testing of batterys

When I look for information about testing batterys either I get
some numbers having to do with volatage, amps etc or some subjective claim about punch or power. Evidence of lower laptimes are nice but there are so many other varaibles. Somtimes just believing a particular motor or battery is better will change how a person drives and effect their lap times.

What I would like are real numbers.
The number of seconds it takes to accelerate from one speed to another.

How much real difference from one 3300 pack to another.

What do you think matchers do? Those are "real" #'s on the cells, not something they made up. The #'s on the pack can tell you how the pack will perform. The lower the internal resistance # the more "punch" or acceleration a pack will have. The higher voltage a pack has the higher top speed your car will have. The higher the runtime # is the more runtime you will have.
