I just started racing and was wondering what would be the best battery for my buck. Iam not all worried about price I want something resonable that can keep up. What batteries would you recomend for me?

If you only run off-road, the 3300's will be great. There are a little cheaper then the 3700's which are the best. Racing on-road I have not noticed much difference except for in the last minute where the 3700's seem to run a little stronger. The 3700's are going to have more run time.The higher voltages usually have a lower IR also.Higher volatage means more speed at the end of the end of the straight and lower IR (internal resistance) means more punch.

If you are just starting out and crash a lot, I would maybe go with the 3300's and get a couple more packs to practice. If you can run the whole race clean, then go with the 3700's. All the power in the world won't do any good parked in the boards. No matter what you buy from Pro Match, they will be great batteries. You can also give Erika a call at the shop and she can set you up if you like. I would also get them assembled as the work is awesome.

Question: I want to go into Vegas with these new batteries performing at their optimum. Do I use them a few races before Vegas to condition them? Or, do I use them for the first time at the Vegas race starting with practice, qualifying and main?

Thanks again, Pro Match!!
I would run them some to get them rolling and then you should be fine. Good Luck, I wish I could make it this year...maybe next year I can...huh PMRGirl?

Yeah Like Brian said I have also used 6amps with no problem but there are several folks who have not had the same luck as us. Use 6amps at your own risk.

PMR Girl and Jeff-
Thanks for the super service on those batteries.
ProMatch powered me to the GT3 win and second place in Mini at the Memphis TCS, and 8th overall in Mini at the TCS Nationals this past weekend. Power was NEVER an issue!
Later
Doc
