if thats the case your packs are no where near charged and you have a problem with the charger. Does it happen on all you packs or only on one or what?

I had my share of glitching problems with my Mi2... I finally mounted my receiver and antenna on the top deck towards the front (two layers of tape under the receiver) and it took care of my problem.

Thanks Paul, After looking at that site you should be about 54-60 deg for your packs.

Yeah, after looking at the temp conversion, your packs aren't getting up to full temp. Make sure if your charger has a temp sensor and temp cutoff that it's set right. Also check your delta peak and make sure that's not set too low.

Yeah at 120F or so I am betting the temp cutoff is too low, if you have that feature, and if not like Jon said the Delta peak is way low.

Paul- Justin's car is getting better and better every week. When I have time, he has me drive it to help him with changes. Nice driving car. We have a good race this weekend (lots of national level talent coming), hopefully he's right up there .

Adrian posted last week that the first kits should hit Schumacher USA on the 12th as long as there's no problems.

My idea is look for another charger in the for sale section and send yours back to get fixed. I know there are better chargers out there but I still use a Novak Millenium Pro. I would look into either another ICE (hopefully that one will work correctly) or the Much More charger if you can afford it. I personally don not like Competetion's chargers. When ever I had one I used it for every feature BUT charging. The Ice, Orion, and Much More are all nice, Do some homework...poke around and ask questions to see what one everyone seems to like and then find out why.

I need a serious hug. The car has demons.... It's been rebuilt so now all that's left is to run it and check out the radio settings.

Oh...I'm sorry. I thought you saw me twisting your shock collars last weekend. My BAD!

I'll be more obvious about it next time

You know I wouldn't.......
