Reedy without a doubt guys! 1.54 to 1.60 best voltage I've seen and thats off our 900 machine here. Cycle them around 20 times prior to use and you'll fly around the track. Of course like any cell take care of them as their all fragile when it comes to high capacity ratings. I'd say Sony's for radio transmitters unless you run lipo conversions.

Darren is one of my staffiers here at RBP. He wanted me to put his two cents in. He runs GPs for mod class.

I sold all my Reedys in spring. Reason was - they didn't hold a charge long. They always offered high volatage but would never let me have it when I wanted it. Kinda a tease for a racing cells. For racing I suppose they were good but the cheap Ternergy's? Holly cow ya all They constantly push current out until they're out! Best buy for the money. Use them abuse them then once they die, buy new ones. Your not out much like those other big brands. I've got 60 plus charges on mine and still the same output.

All matched Reedys in my kart. For my radio I have a lipo 2s conversion. Only way to go!

I've had my Reedys around 5 months and still get close or the same numbers as the first day! I ran GP's for the longest time until other karts started to get faster than mine. I'll be buying more for fall and using my older ones for practice. Nice cells in my opinion so far.

I didn't see you started this thread guys! Everyone close to me knows I'm a loyal fan of the Reedys. I to obtain the same digits as from the day I purchased them. Actually I got better around my 100th charge. Now keep in mind unlike many here. I do match my cells for better life and performance.

I see a new thread is started. What no welcome back guys? no party? Interesting changes in cell choice since I've been away. I guess I'll toss in my 2 cents for whats its worth. I used Intellects before I went into the hospital. My first race I placed 6th overall. They worked good for me then. I'll probably use the same cells since they really didn't get used much. Maybe two races and a few practices. Intellects it is for me

How often do you take yours down JB? I find if I take mine down once a month atleast it really helps in performance.
