Just to let everyone know...I have been doing some testing on the EA cells and let me tell you what!!!!! These cells are amazing. I have been dead shorting them with great results. Every cycle the voltage comes up and the IR drops!!!

It is best to begin the dead shorting method from the very begining. I have not tried dead shorting older packs.

What process and what are you using to dead short these packs?

Eric,

Is the Mt Fuji based ARCOR 19 Turn a fixed timing or adjustable timing motor?

EA,

HOpe your feeling better. I am running some mod 12th scale this weekend. Thinking of building up one of the new EA 35 amp packs I havent sold yet. Its stupid high in voltage. Can I gear it a tooth less than say a lower voltage pack and still have the same top-end because of the voltage? I assume if I do that and dont pull any harder on the trigger the whole run-I should finish stronger too.

Am I even close on this?

Ray

Mt Fuji is an adjustible timing motor. I've built a few of the new 35amp packs. They are awesome.

rcracenut-discharge cells on tray till voltage is as close to 0.00 as possible(Depends on tray). Then simply solder a jumper across the + and - .....You will need to put 2 or 3 cycles through them whether in your car or on the machine before the cells really come to life.


P.S. YOU MUST BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO DEADSHORT A CHARGED PACK!!!

team butter that PS bit should be in red

Like a warning sign
certainly don`t want any accidents

Just remember guy`s if discharge a pack the voltage jumps back up as soon as you take them off,
so you need to be on your toes & think about what you are doing & for christ sake use a bit of common sense

Berger-That is the safest method.

For those of you who are new to Dead Shorting you might want to take a Voltmeter and read the voltage of the individual cells...

P.S. This will cause a reduction in runtime!!!!!!!!!!! This can also be VERY VERY VERY dangerous....

Make sure to wear..

Yes..but if you bought decent cells in the first place with high runtime and high AV, low IR then you wouldn't need to dead short them...EA all the way

hehe...

I used to do it when we raced oval , with 2000 cells. I was just wondering if the procedure was the same. How does it effect the overall life of the pack? If your packs dont get used for a couple months ( due to summer nitro racing) do you leave them deadshorted or unhooked?
