Oval battery questions
Coming back into R/C racing after about 10 years off. I'm looking for information on batteries, specifically charge/discharge rates, cutoff, etc.; basically, how to read the numbers and what information those numbers will give me as a "amateur" racer just coming back. What exactly am I looking for with the 4200s?
Also, do you guys follow any specific procedures with specific chargers, or are they all pretty much the same procedures no matter which charger you're using? I'd just like to know what I'm getting myself back into....LOL...let's say, with purchasing a brand new set of batteries. Do I just throw them on the charger at say, 5 amps until their voltage maxes out?
Last time I was seriously racing, we ran 1700SCE's. We'd throw them on a charger with a voltmeter, and charge them until they got warm and, with a voltmeter hooked up, the voltage dropped by .1 volt. Yeah, it's been a while...LOL
Actually looking to run the Snowbirds (stock oval class) in January.
