Does the mini fit under the e-z up? We wouldn't want it to shrink anymore, he would never make it to the track then.

I couldn't make the orl, but i did attend the Roar Reginal on saturday...came in 2nd place in both mod touring and mod 12th.

**Surge Official Price Warning**

Today I was told by a GP representative that the prices on GP3300 cells will be increasing over 25% per cell very soon. This increase will effect all battery matchers, not just Surge.

The next few weeks will probably be the last time you see prices on packs this low. We will likely be increasing our pricing as soon as we are effected by this change.

Sorry for the bad news, guys.

Figures!!!!!!! Just as you thought everything was good and then GP has to go and [email protected]#@[email protected]# it up. I guess they will say that their material prices have gone up. GP gotta be making more money than they have ever made as the 3300 is the first cell they ever had that is good.

Well, guys, I got the inside dope on the price hike.

It seems that GP is making changes to the cell. I wasn't told *exactly* what that means, but I know it's an 'enhancement'.

I'm thinking 3600s.

Heck... that's just a label change. I get more than 3600 out of my Surge 3300's already

Keep us posted. I know some of us may want to snag a few more packs before the price hike if we get an early warning.
