WOW that was quick!!
Let me spin this a bit to see if I have it right.
Let's say I have some really choice race packs and so "save" them a bit, I charge them the night before the race at a low amperage.
So, when I get to the track, the packs will be charged, but not "warm".
I put them back on the charger and repeak them at, say 5-6 amps, for x minutes to "warm them them up".
Using that plan (if it's not utterly ridiculous to do so), would the "repeaking" take a short time as compared to what it would take to charge a cold, discharged pack at 5-6amps?

Repeaking is simply putting it on peak charge again.
If a pack has been standing for a little while, it will have shed a little energy and heat. Batteries tend to work best fresh off the charger, with a little warmth in them, and with the maximum energy from the charge.
So, if you charged the pack the night before, or it finished 30 mins before the race, you may want to repeak it.
Some chargers give you the option to repeak after a set time, as little as 5 minutes. In my opinion, all this will serve to do is overheat the battery without getting any more real energy into it.
