I believe the Real Time 2's discharge rate is only 5 amps.
I think so. I opened mine and the resistors are 10W 20 Ohm. Not 20 amp for sure.

At what rate does the tray discharge each cell? Is it just a simple resistor for each?
In the case of the Trinity trays, that's all they have, and of course a fan to prevent total meltdown
The Robitronic that you see in the pic has diodes to assure a cutoff voltage of .8 per cell.
I opened my Trinity tray and I can see that's very easy to install diodes for cutoff. I will have to put the packs in a certain position but at least I wont ruin them (this may be a bit extreme, but any matcher will tell you that you SHOULD not discharge your NiMh down to 0V). I assume they are right...
Two of my Sanyos 3000 were showing very strange signs when I used the Trinity, but now they seem to have regained some health. The car does not crawl like before.
