EQing them more gets your more runtime, and runtime with IB 3800's in not an issue, I always EQ them at .9
I charge teh same way you do, but sometimes we have a shortage on people each week, so that doesnt allot me to discharge, tray, then let the battery totaly cool, then charge, so sumtimes i charge them up from when i used them the 1st race. But i totaly let them kool first.
For storage, i discharge them to 5.4 volt and let them sit untill next week, when next week comes, i tray to .9, then charge it baby!
But right now, onroad ended, and offroad starts in little more then a month, so i put a full charge in them to store at 4 amps, then when im ready to use them, ill go early to the track and use the packs in practice, then do it all over again
