Default Battery Charging

hello i just got an Integy 3600 7-cell battery for my Traxxas rustler and wondering what is the suggested charge rate. My charger has a 1,3,and 5 amp settings. Was thinking 3 amps is good. Thank you

3 amp charge will give you more runtime but a 5 amp charge will give you more power to pull wheelies and such.

3 amp will make the life of the battery itself last longer,5 amp is harder on the cells

Default go with 5

What kind of charger are we talking here?
How hot do the batteries get?
Lastly, can you adjust the delta peak setting?

Most of us are charging at 6 these days.
