Default automatic discharge?

hey, guys, not sure if this is normal, i have a 3600 nimh pack, just got it, ran it and got about 2 min out of it, guy said i needed to cycle it, a few times, not issues, there. but after cycling it, and charging it, i noticed that if you let it sit for roughly 8 h rs, the battery will drain to 7.45 vlts roughly, if i do a quick peak charge will i get it back up to the fully charged pack, seems inevitable to ever get a pack to stay charged? Is this normal?

That's the nature of the beast. Letting a pack sit for 8 hours after being charged won't lose that much run time, but it will be extremely flat (lacking any real punch). For best performance you have to run the pack right after it comes off the charger. By the time the pack cools, the voltage will usually drop enough that it will feel flat.
