This is exactly why I run Tony's stuff. When I started racing again last year, it was a simple decision on who to call and where I would spend my money.

As someone that was in the matching business from 1987-1997 (if any of you old-timers remember Team Smooth), I can tell you that care and hard work is what makes the difference.

Tony takes the time to make sure EVERY pack that goes out the door is prepared the same way. It isn't cost-effective for the larger matchers to do this...they need to get product out the door too quickly. They'll spend some more time on the top percentage (for team drivers or what they'll get big $$$ for), but the rest are one cycle-label-out the door.

....and I'm REALLY looking forward to running Tony's new IB3800s this coming season. I have a pack of his IB3600s, and they're incredible. I can't imagine what the 38s will be like!

My new IB3800's ran great this past weekend on their first time out. As usual, I'm happy with the service and performance that I get from Tony.


Tony- You have mail...

Tony

The times were consistent from start to finish. I think on the second run on each pack, the fastest laptimes were towards the end of the 5 minute heat.

The IB38's are unbelievable.
I had to change my set-up a little to deal with the push I developed.

Tony,
Just wanted to let you know that Sunday Andrew my son and I went to the 7th annual Summer Classic at the hobby hub and the IB's did very well.
Andrew, 12 years old qualified last in the A main 19t rubber. He'd had a few problems in the heats but was very consitant. I qualified 5th in 19t and finished fith. Andrew on the other hand pulled out very hard earned second place. It was awsome. We have the power.

I ran Tony’s IB3800s last night at our small, local track. We’ve been running the same layout that last few weeks to dial in our new Losi’s. I ran the new IB3800 pack the first charge last night in my TC3 on the same track & went 2 1/2 tenths faster than my TC3 ever went & 1 tenth faster than my Losi has gone. As Tony would say “WOW!” I’ve only run these packs one night but they are defiantly fast. I ran my 19 turn last week with Tony’s GP3700’s in practice & at the 7 minute mark, I was still running within a tenth of the fastest overall lap. The IB3600’s seem just as good too as long as you get them hot, just a little less run time. R.W.

2 1/2 tenths per lap? If so,
Thats amazing when you think about it.
2 1/2 tenths faster. That could add up to 2 or more laps depending on the track size.

That was off my fastest lap time up to this date. We've been running on this layout for a few weeks and thought I'd got everything I could out of the TC3 till the other night. The previous packs I was running weren't that old so the new ones definately made a difference.

Even at that, its still an significant increase on your total performance.
