I'm looking for some solid quality racing packs.

Battery packs are not something that:

A) I want to buy online

B) I want to buy used / pre-owned

Therefore, where is the best store to purchase battery packs of a good quality at a fair price?

I would still try or such in the US. I find batteries are crazy expensive around here. I got Top of the line Peak IB4200 (1.25+ volts) for under $60 US. They would run easily over $100 in the stores (probably around $120).

The 3300's mentioned above are from REEDY....we also have gp3900's (new cells) they're $54.99 and we have a bunch of high Volt GP3700 mathched packs @ 2 for $140 or a bit lower volts at 2 for $130 . We offer a build-while-you-wait service at no charge for all mathched packs purchased here. You just pay for battery bars and wire.
We have over 70 packs to choose from in stock.

IB cells are ok for short term high performance but really if you want durability and You're not an 'A' mainer looking to kill, get the GP Cells, they will last all summer without performance fade.
