Default Fast racing

Hey Tony,

Well this sat was awesome thanks to your packs. I ran the zebra cells this weekend at Team Maximus Raceway, This was our last race for the triple summer series. I ran faster than the last time I was there. The quickest time I did a lap was 4.5 secs. Top notch sponsered guys are running 4.2/4.3. I put in one of the new packs you sent me I ran a 4.3-I am frigin amazed. I qualified 6th for the A main and finished there but every time I ran your packs I was bumped up a main. I will more than likely order 1 or 2 of the IB 3800's. I would have to disagree with some people and say I ran the IB3600 and it seems that they have long run time but no real punch, maybe because they were from SMC. Tony I will let you know about ordering, everyone around here in CT.ME etc are going to 3800's in Sept. Its going to be intresting, Thanks Tony-Keep up the awesome Quality your putting out.

On another note does anyone here live in CT and running PowerPush Cells? There is a race at R/C Madness this sat the 3rd, I plan to be there and was wondering if anyone else will be? If so let me know.

For those of you who just bought new IB's and have put 2 or 3 runs on them and are thinking, holy crap.
Just wait until you get 6 or 7 runs on them!!!!!

Default ib's

what is the voltage and run time on your 3800's tony is sending me a pack of the 3800's. I plan to run it on sat to test them out. Are they worth replacing the 3300's? Let me know I am very intrested in hearing from others on the ib 3800's.I realy wasnt impressed with the IB3600's they were not from Tony so he is not to blame. Are you saying they should be cycled a few times before they hit the track or what? how do you condition your 3800's? Thanks in advance and I am still waiting to hear from any powerpush drivers from CT-anyone out there.

I recieved eight packs from Tony and they range from 1.175 to 1.79 with and avarage run time of 409. I have a countless number of other power push batteries that I am still using. As far as the 3800's go I would'nt spend the time bench racing them just put the in your car and run them. You will notice a differance the more you run them and remember the IB's love heat. I've found that they work the best if you take them off the charger at around 125 - 130 degrees.

Well I raced yesterday at R/C Madness in Enfeild CT. First time I ran on asphalt and the first time I ran 19turn. Needless to say I did not have a good time. Lots of sponsored jerks up there-EGOS one in racer who was a complete jerk- Scott Law, wondering if his sponsors would like to know how he treated fellow racers who are trying to be competitve with the rest of these guys who get basicaly everything handed to them. Not only that he came in dead last DNF. I am sponsored by my wallet. I drive clean, if I am slower I move out of the way. Anyways I fought the car all day with a glitch and then was finaly able to get around to the handiling part. At the end of the day the car was running great. I ran power push 3300's all day and saved the PP IB3800 for the main. With the PP 3300's I was running 5.5-5.6 sec lap times. I used the PP IB3800 in the main and went to a best lap time of 5.3 sec lap time. I was only able to do 20 laps in the main because of a crash fest-9 drivers in the main and when you have that many Big Egos in a race it is no wonder 5 out of 9 finished. Worst experience I have had yet so far. O well next race coming up and will be a good time is the 25th at Team Maximus Raceway in York Maine. SOS race. I look forward to it and will probably order more power push IB3800's. Thanks tony and sorry I couldnt give better news or results. This is apart of racing.

Hi Bob,
You know it, those power push batteries are killer.
We were basicaly breaking them in at the MORL and now there just awesome.
Jesse is running brand "B" at the moment, but I'm working on him.
He told me all about Halo.
I think Jesse is a rising star. I hope he can keep his focus and put together a good package for this season.
L8r, -Fred
