An EQ tray works wonders. Like John said that should help.

is fusion going to stock GPs when their next higher capacity cells come out or are they just sticking to IBs?

So far It looks like Gp has given up on the R/C market.If Gp makes a cell that everyone will be using then yes. Until then No.

Talking FUSION BATTERIES

FOR MANY YEARS I HAVE USED FUSION BATERIES IN 4 CELL STOCK OVAL RACING. FUSION BATTERIES HAVE WON ME MANY A-MAIN FEATURES UP HERE IN NEW ENGLAND. MOST RECENTLY USING FUSION POWER IB 4200'S I WAS ABLE TO BETTER MY LOCAL TRACK RECORD BY SEVEN SECONDS OVER THE 150 LAP FEATURE LENGTH. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK GUYS AND GALS.

Cool Troy sorry I missed it.I had to stay home and work.. I really miss racing. I havent missed them for lack of desire. I have been outta town most of the time and on call for the last one. I will be back on the series possibly at Daytona. I liked the old Ormond layouts anyways.

Yes John, we miss you at the races. I placed 2nd in the Stock A-Main at the Florida Series race @ MDI with my Fusion Powered Xray T2. I was in the midde of the first turn pile-up running 6th after first lap, but car had plenty of power to work my way up to 2nd by the end of the 6 minute main.

Superior for 3-4 months, but some of us like our packs to last at least one season.

There hasn't been a cell in the last ten years that didn't fall off after 3-4 months of racing. If you run high level mod sedan or 1/12th on road its known that your batteries will will only maintain national caliber performance for ~10 cycles. Thats 10 - 5 min open mod runs. You can double that for stock or 19T. After that you know you are not getting 100% out of the pack.

Here's a history of batteries. After the noted number of runs you could not finish a 4 to 5 min run in open mod.

1200SC - We were too dumb to know how long they lasted
1200SCR - ~5 runs
1400SCR - ~10 runs
1700SCE - These were one run packs in Mod
P-170 - These might stone dead when you pulled them out of the box. They would last only one run in mod.
1700SCR - ~5 runs
RC1700 - ~10 runs
RC2000 - ~10 runs
RC2400 - ~5 runs
Panasonic 3000 - ~10 runs
Sanyo 3000 - ~5 runs
Panasonic Stock Metal 3000 - ~10 runs
Ultra Metal 3000's - ~10 runs
GP3300 - ~10 runs
IB3600 - ~2 runs
GP3700 - ~10 runs
IB3800 - ~10 runs
IB4200 - ~10 runs
GP4300 - ~10 runs

So...when exactly were the "Good Ole Days"?

We are living them now. We are going faster than ever, batteries are cheaper than they were 5 years ago. The cells are so good today you can buy a pack as good or better than a pro drivers pack at you local hobby shop.

If you club race in 19T or Stock you can easily get a season of racing from your packs. If you travel to Nationals and you want to place highly count on buying new packs for every event you go to.

If they are so cheap then, will you buy three four-cell packs for me? Some of us mow lawns for RC parts.

He didn't say cheap. He said cheaper, which is absolutely correct. Last year a pack of 1.18+ would have cost me $70. This year i can get a pack that runs 1.21+ for $45. Better performance and lower cost! Also, the same packs that a year ago would have cost $70 are now less then $35.
