I know the charging capacity is more on the 1000's but how much the price difference is about $4 from 900 to 1000?

When I use to run 10th scale TC I had the intellect batts (I believe) and the 3800's that they have have way better power compare to their 3600's. I mean it was like running a faster motor everytime I switch to that 3800's. I was wondering if this triple A's w/ 100mah difference will do the same. If not, that's cool. I want to get 3 sets of 900mah instead of 2 sets of 1000's.

Thanks!

-Tjaydon't. get 1000. They are not faster (voltage/current is the same) and might be a little heavier, but they last forever - very convenient when you do hot laps before the race. I have both and if i was to choose now i'd go with 1000.

don't. get 1000. .....i'd go with 1000.

This is a very misleading statement. Id like some clarification :D

Here some of the tests I did and results:

MR02's with Atomic stock, stock 3010 FETS, 9 pinion, stock kyosho spur gear, ball diff, ball bearing all around, toyota van body (not painted), PN plastic rims, Kyosho 20 rear and PN 20 front. Car weighs 215 grams.

1000 mahs -> 40 mins runtime and it was still pretty fast, no need to change the battery...I think this is good for 40-45 mins.

900 mahs -> 35 mins runtime, when I hit the wall the car took sometime to pick up its speed. Time to replace the battery. Definitely only good for 25-30 mins.

If I can rember correctly, I was able to do 29-30 laps on a 5 mins race with this set-up on my van. I don't really notice a huge (night and day) difference between speed and runtime. For me, it feels the same. That is why I bought two more sets of those 900mah Sanyo's. For $7.99, you can't beat it!

Laters!
