I ran both new packs of 1.16's last night in my brushless XXXT. Nice. Even though it was their first runs and I only got one run in on each pack, they were better than tha 2 month old 175's I have from another matcher. I think they have more in them. I've noticed after a dozen runs or so, the 3300's seem to kind of come alive. Anyone else notice that? One of the pack has massive run times. The lowest number is 428! That pack with my brushless went more than 10 min and still had about 500 maH left after I pulled it in. Tomorrow I'll be running them in my XXXS w/ a 19 turn on a huge track. We'll see how much better they get.

Or give them a call. I don't think they're selling anywhere but online right now. Don't know for sure though.

I am a dealer-but only for the Gate-my track.

But get this-I got screwed by the shipping companies AGAIN!! The 13 batteries I ordered were on the FedEx truck Friday and never got dropped off. I called at 4pm-"Oh dont worry-its on the truck!! It will be there by close of business." NOT!!!

I think all the shipping companies should change there slogans to:

"If you need it when we say we can get it to you-use our most expensive option-or else-we dont care about your parcel one bit."

Sorry-Venting-I get screwed by USPS, Fed Ex ALL the time. And I am in an industrial park in a big city!! Its not like I am in the boonies!!

Danny-I was so hoping (as were 4 local racers) to run my new packs tomorrow. I guess they'll have to wait till Oct. 12th!!

Don't feel alone...it happens to me too. I'm ona first name basis with my FedEx and UPS guys, and I had to go to the local FedEx warehouse to get my packs on Friday. I'm 6 miles away.

It seems that both FedEx and UPS have their quirks, and that both are slipping to lowest common denominator service. This is in no way a slight on anyone using them, just experience based on shipping literally tons of stuff back an forth via major carriers for the last few years.

Remember when FedEx had same day delivery? Not any more...

Keeping this on topic, man these cells are awesome! I hand-charged one pack (no NiMH compatible charger...sigh) at 5.5A and ran it till it stopped...I'll have to gear up a bit to turn all of that extra runtime into more speed

Here's hoping I don't fry my motor in the process

I've been running 1.16 and 1.17 packs for BL, they seem to have as much power as the other cars. I do keep my 1.17's just for racing though, have 5 practice packs to ensure they stay fresh.

If Scott can offer them at the same prices, that'd be cool.
