I've got a big race upcoming this weekend and am looking to get the most punch out of my batteries for stock racing as I can. I have a T35 charger. I have been charging my 2400's at 6-8 amps recently with a .08 peak detection They have been giving me fairly decent punch, but I am wondering if I can get more?
Will charging at 10 or possibly 12 amps make a big difference in punch? I am aware that this is not good for the packs, but the packs are getting old and I want to get all I can out of them for this weekend.
Would going to a 0.09 peak detection be too high? Does anyone know of a maximum temperature the pack should reach when charging?
Also, should I try to time it so that my pack finishes charging right before my race with only 1 peak charge? Or should I charge it, and then repeak it right before? I have heard that after the pack finishes charging and sits and starts to lose heat, the voltage drops and the IR increases, is this true? If so, does the IR increasing cause a drop in punch or runtime?
Sorry for the length.
