so Epic is getting the top of Trinitys allotment coming out of Hong Kong and GP is pretesting them to insure Epic gets the BEST

Epic was always a company now selling on their own. Trinity sells Epic stuff. Epic is a big company with little name recognition other than motors. i didn't think Epic got their batteries from Trinity, then rewraped them while touting a promise of increased voltage/capacity. they are cutting the best at the source

im am not whining about the batteries, companies got to do what they have to do.... to make their mark and walk over?????????

Epic is E rnie P rovetti I nternational C orp., or at least that's what I have been told. As far as i know, it's always been Trinity's subsidiary.

RobK hit it on the head. Epic is Trinity and Trinity is Epic.

And therefore part of the marketing hype that is Trinity/EPIC... and it is mostly hype with little substance. Wish I could say that on techtalk without being deleted!!!

Send Jimmy Fukuyama a PM. I am sure he can get you batteries. Not sure if there is a dealer in Malaysia or not, but something may be able to be worked out. Jimmy takes care of his customers.

Thumbs up Thanks

Guys, Thanks for the nice comments. I'm so happy you guys are enjoying it as much as we're enjoying cranking them out. Sadly, there is a slight delay on the 1.17s but rest assure, the waiting list will be filled once they are ready by the end of the month and hopefully those that are on top of the waiting list will soon have theirs.

I wish there was someone willing to carry our cells in Malaysia and other parts of ASIA, but we're doing what we can and any referrals is greatly appreciated. Just so you know, we will be inheriting some skills from another well known matcher in the industry and looks like the cells will continue to perform AWESOMELY cycle after cycle after cycle!

Happy Racing!

Jimmy Fukuyama

Default power cube...

do the cells in the power cube come with any numbers?

or is it just that you insure they are atleast "...1.145 to 1.160. Average Runtime between 390 seconds to 420 seconds".


thanks.

The power cube is an affordable alternative for good number packs without numbers on the label and simply a label that states "Power Enhanced Cells". The reason for this is because it is more cost effective for us to not match these cell by cell. In no ways are these weak cells that are put aside. They are in fact very good cells and people who's bought them will tell you they are one of the wisest R/C investments. I've seen people race with them and did better then the guys with full blown matched packs. But just to clear things up, these cells run between 1.145~1.160, simply because we have more yields on the 1.16s so some have been included just to fill orders. Runtime will definately last you a full 5 minute race and then some. Even went running full mods. Unless you're getting ready for the Nationals or Worlds, these will do just fine.
