hey Tony,
I'm just wondering how large of an inventory do you carry. I've got a trophy race near the end of Jan. and then onroad regionals in Feb and carpet oval regionals in March. I've checked out your site and your prices are very reasonable(especially since i'm currently unsponsored...lol). But, I wasn't sure how soon I would be able to get cells if I ordered them. Right now I know our local hobby shops never seem to have a large quantity of batteries in stock. Nobody in the Kansas City area carries Power Push cells. But, i've always heard great things about your cells since your beginning and am really interested in running some. Please let me know and if I can have them in time i'll have to see about making my order soon.
Thanks.
Lance

I have been running power push cellsfor a few years now. i gotta tell ya i have never been down on power. I have pretty much all but quit cycling my pacjks. I know they are good. I just keep track of their charge characteristics and how they perform on the track to see where I am at. This has given me more time to work on driving and setup. Not having to worry about my cells all the time is a load off my mind.

What a great resource. Tony has helped me with alot more than just batteries. Setups, esc settings, motor combos. He has been there, done that. You couldn't ask for a nicer guy.

Winner.. Dana touched on this earlier. i'd like to add something. Tony doesn't care if its indoor champs,a regional, or a club race. He not only wants his packs to win..he wants YOU to win. He's a racer and loves to know how you are doing. Wherever you are running.

Thank You Tony and Power Push staff

Dave and Tony,

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but the settings on a CE GFX and a LRP charger read different.
.05 cut off on a GFX = 50 mv on a LRP.
Not .05 on a LRP.
Your LRP should be fine.
The cut off setting for a LRP would be 10 mv or 20 mv at the highest for GP 3300's.
That would give you a .01 or .02 reading on a GFX.
If I didn't explain this correct, feel free to chime in.

Slim, Maybe Mr. Blackstock can help clear this issue.

Talk to you soon.

Tracy you are absolutely correct . .05 on the LRP and a Novak x =20mv role over on a 4 cell pack.

witch is good

Hey
? for you guys. Do any of you dead short your cells? A couple of the guys at the track have been doing it at the track here for awhile now. They say it's really helped their cells saying that even after 4 months or so, they really don't have the power drop off that their cells did before after time. I just wondered what some of the other peoples thoughts were on it and if they suggested it or not.

LANCE I DO DEAD SHORT but make sure you put them on a discharge tray till all the lights go out first also use a piece of solder to dead short them that way if you do it without traying them the solder will melt before the pack does!BE CAREFUL GOODLUCK!

congratulations to jim herrmann from the gate, the only power push driver at the novak race (to my knowledge). he was good enough to qualify for the b-main in the biggest class of the weekend, stock foam.

nice work jim.
