I prefer to discharge to 3.4 volts per cell only on the first charge.
Charge at 12-20 amps and your good to go.
I prefer 20 amps first charge to heat them up internally.
This lowers the IR on the first charge.
If you don't think its an advantage then discharge your lipo at 30 amps.
And watch the voltage.
So, are you to discharge to 3.4v just when you get a new battery, then charge at 20A, or do this every time for race days? If the battery will be stored for a week or more after a race weekend?
