The only time I discharge lipos is if I have them charged and I am going to store them, my charger's "storage charge" mode will charge or dis-charge the pack to bring it a safe storage level. Discharging lipos between runs will only hurt them.

As to why you are getting dead cells....what kinds of lipos are you using, in what car? What kind of charger do you have? What is your method of diagnosing the cells?
