You can get cells the week of the race and run them in practice and then race with them no problem. I would not get them until like a week or two before the race....and try not to run them too much so they stay FRESHer. Last I talked to Brad hes matching stuff all the time so if Trackside is out of anything it wont be long before its all back instock.

I would say the best performance out of your cells will be with in the first 30 to 40 cycles. After that they are not as good as new but still good enough to race with week to week. I usually run my packs about 2 to 4 times every weekend and so far the new cells are holding up great. The older GP cells for me did not hold up very well they only lasted about 4 months of use....but it would be hard to find a matcher now that is still selling the older stuff. So any GP cells you get now are going to be very good and they seem to keep very well too.

Kevin,

I ordered some brushes on the 4th. I emailed them in regards to the shipping costs and havent heard anything from them. How is there shipping and do they send confirmation emails etc. Just wondering since I havent heard anything.

Thanks,
Wayne

Wayne....I spoke with Brad this afternoon and he said that he just got all the issues with the Pay Pal shopping cart all worked out. I dont know if you can see but your money is or was probably showing a status of unlcaimed from Hurricane. This has now finally been fixed and all orders will be shipped in the morning. Brad is sorry for the delay but he has been working on trying to get this resolved with Pay Pal. Im not sure about getting an email when he ships your order but I will mention it to him. But he said all the orders he got will be going out in the morning. I can check with them and make sure about your order for you and will post what I find.

Nexus-
HMSMTK1 - Consists of our Gold Brushes and the spring combo that we think works the best for the Monster motor.

Dumper....Try running the brush narrowed up some and green and red springs. Or a "/ " cut in the brush works well too.
