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.

Hey Jim

do you have any packs that will make the 8 min bench mark for JMRCA rules????

Run time is a must over here in J-Land

Wow! you're talking 480 seconds. Or at least that's what it adds up to. I'll look into it.

btw, that would still not cut the 480s races. I thought they were 6 and 7 minutes. When did you start this 8min thing?

We're having a special promotional month with $0.00 shipping = free shipping anywhere in the continental US excluding Alaska, Hawaii and US Virgin Islands. This does not apply to the Internationals.

crono man,

I am uncertain if there is a dealer in Canada, but I am sure Jimmy can get some packs to you.

If you're interested, let me know and I can ship to Canada. Problem with Canadian Dealers is that most don't like paying the high duties I guess. Haven't had a contact from there asking to become a dealer.

I just ordered 4 matched 1.15+ packs and look forward to running them. I was a little intrested in the 18 cell power brick deal for $85.99 and I know they aren't matched but between 1.145 and 1.6+ but I thought it was a little overpriced considering for $5 more you can get a guarenteed 3 matched sets of 1.15+ of batteries. If you lower the price of this brick of cells just a tad I think it would be a better deal... but only because your 1.15 matched cells are such a steal in the first place!

Really looking forward to the cells for my new XXX-S G+ currently about halfway through the build...

Cheers!
