Default Discharging a pack after a race

Has anyone had the issue when discharging your pack down to 5.4V or 3.6V after a race that the weakest cell might reverse polarity if it goes down to zero before the discharger trips? Its possible cause I have seen it that 5 of the 6 cells remain at say 1.15V = 5.75V while the 6th cell goes to 0V then reverses.

Any thoughts on maybe 1.0V per cell or 6V and 4V may be better?

I've been using a spintek BM to discharge to .9 for a while now(30-40cycles on six bats) with no problem. I do use a novak discharge tray and tray them with the hold setting @ .9 for about five minutes before charging them and they're still very strong, with great runtime I allways store them ( between weekly races) at about 20% charge. Hope this helps
