i just run mine till they get weak, not really to the point where the truck wont drive under its own power, but yeah... i run em down pretty far.

if i use it on the front street, ill go till it can barely climb up my sidewalk, in the snow.

No, you dont need to with a NiMh battery.
NiMh dosent build up "memory" like the old NiCd batts do.
