Default chargers and dischargers opinion please

I'm getting geared up to get back into electric racing and amd seeking professional advice on the chargers of choice also a srand alone discharger as well.
I've currently purchased the Integy 16x7 V6 and also have a couple of the Novak Millenium chargers.

I know my Integy will discharge at 30 amps but do I need a discharge tray to use? If so whats the brand you guys prefer?

The Novak Smart tray is probably the best equalizer on the market.

Tekin Battery Doctor, non-polarised (cells go in either way), drops cells down to 0.7v@2A, LED's go out, it will then slowly take each cell down to 0.5V and no more, plus no need to carry a bahemouth of a tray around, plus it looks rather FUNKY!!

The New Orion Advantage (with the Carbon Fiber Look) is a hybrid charger.
You can charge Nimh cells and also Lipo. It may be a good investment since the trend looks like its heading toward Lipo.
