The following week I ran my new car for the first time on carpet, and won by nearly 2 laps! My IB batteries aren't falling off at all during the full 5 minutes. I'm turining some of my best lap times at the end of the race! They run just as fast as your 3300 zebra packs too! Can't go wrong either way.

Mike Great Job
Mike what car and class did you get the trophy?
Mike in your own opinion witch do you like better , Epic, Carrot tops,
or IB 3600? O and the most important thing for what car and class????

I pretty much run just stock and 19-turn touring car. Right now, I like the IB the best and will race them anytime I get the chance.

However, if they're teching the cars and only allow 3300's, I like the zebra cells. The IB and the Zebras are pretty close, but the IBs seem to stay stronger for longer. (Hey, that rhymes!)

Won the big trophy in Stock Sedan, and right now it's up at the local hobby shop. I plan on winning a couple more in 2 weeks!

Tony, Again my Powerpush Epic cells holding on strong. Good enough for TQ and the win in 19t touring at my local track. These batteries are the best I have ever used.

Hey Tony, have you got any of the ib3800's available? We're running on the asphalt for our summer points series and mod motors. So I was needing some more runtime. I was going to call you. But i've lost all my phone numbers. Give me a call and let me know on the ib's. Would like to put in an order if you've got some.

Power Push batteries ran great at the West Virginia State Champs. Plenty of punch and HP all weekend, and was able to bring home 3rd in both stock and 19-turn sedan classes.

If you're looking for some new cells, Power Push IB3800s are the only way to go. All I could say during last nights racing was WOW! These are by far the best cells I've ever used. I ran another matchers IB3800 cells during my first two qualifiers, and they were okay. Better than 3300s but nothing to write home about. For my third qualifier, I threw in a pack of Power Push 3800 and nearly crapped myself. I picked up 8 seconds over my second qualifier and ran the fastest lap times that I have ever run on this track layout. I threw another pack of Tony's 3800s in for the 1/12 scale A-main and won it! Again ran super fast laps and the batteries never dropped off. 12.2 second fastest lap and I was still running 12.6 - 12.8 laps on laps 36-38. Amazing!

Default How about a rematch

Tony,

After talking with you over the last month, I have decided that I have probably killed all of my PowerPush batteries. They still run fairly good but I hadn't known all of the techniques listed in this forum. Was wondering if you would be willing to rematch and rebuild my zebra and 3600's using your awesome soldering technique.

I am also going to need two 3800 packs. Man the one you gave me to run three weeks ago was sweet! After loosing a half a second on the start due to sleeping driver on stand, it only took me half a lap to catch the leader. Did I say catch, I meant to say approach so quickly he decided to put me over the boards, because if he let me by he would have never caught me!

Your motor tuner at the Gate,
Gabe

PS. How about giving me a motor that hasn't been through two world wars
