the IP cells have higher voltage, and a lower IR. But they seam to be a little soft on the first charge. I also noticed that using the same charge profile as my IB3800, the IP came off alot cooler. they were about 95 where my IBs come off around 120. Will work on them some more next weekend.

how many amps are you charging at? 6amps? id love to get more feedback on the IPs..

wonder if you can bump that up to 6.5amps or even 7amps? if its coming off so cool.

7a to 2700mah
.2 to 2750mah
6 to 5000mah

this is the profile I was using for ib3800 and they were always great on the track. they do come off cooler with the step charge. but I knew that the IBs needed to be above 110. needs more playing, but it was a short race program last night. most wanted to get home bfore the "Big Game"

sweet... although we're trading in lifespan for performance..... im sure it can handle the slight increase in charge amps.

Default Stick to side by side

How hard is it to convert a pro-match stick pack to a side by side configuration?

What's the best way to get the cells apart?

Thanks.

Thats a tough one, I have never done it; I would be careful to not damage the cells pulling them apart. I would call Erika and ask her if they would do it for you.

Thanks.
i took apart a friend's promatch stick pack to make into a side by side. here's what i did.

1. i took an xacto knife and cut off the plastic tubing.
2. removed the end caps.
3. unsoldered the deans connectors
4. gently stretched out the stick pack..until i can see the thin strips of metal (correct name?) then i cut them in half.
5. i took a set of pliers and pulled off the pieces from the ends of each battery making sure not to damage the ends.
6. i used a dremel to sand the end of each cell.
7. soldered them into a side by side pack using a dean's battery jig.

sending it to promatch would be easier tho.

and looking at the discharge curve of the 4200, they do not have more voltage in the first 5-8min. they have the same voltage for longer.a good matched set of 3800 give you over 1.20 for 470-500 seconds. that is well past the 5min mark. 8 min is only 480 secs. I have 3800 with over 500sec of 1.20+. also their IR is not any lower.

the cells to watch are the IP cells, no more voltage, but the IR on the newer series is way low. that means more punch.

How does the IP cells compare with IB? phyisically are the IP's smaller or bigger? heavier? with regards to performace?

i know exactly what you mean... ... Thanks... we'll be getting our first batch of 4200's...
