If your words are right above,then my charger won't even take up to 40mins in a dis-charge/peak charge @5-6A cycle,but then my 3300 packs produce sort of poor punch,i mean they make good punch at start,then drop after 3 mins later,they might have bad cells in between?

IF you have 3300 cells they probently has gone bad how old are they and do you drive tehm often. i have been running my 3300 for a year now and that is way to mutch because i run them about 8 times a week each.
so if your batteries have a low punch you might have whered them out

3800 cells are much better than 3300s, lol. With 3800 cells I have punch for an entire race.

your motor may be overheating a little. starts off well, but heat builds up causing the loss in punch. just a possible cause..

You may right zipp, i did not notice this til you told here,i use those old stock motors like green can monster 27t,Trinity p2k2t...They're look old though,never replaced bushs or cut...I should try something new like orion evo,but not too sure my batteries can stand it or not?

I don't use my 3300s much,2-4 times per month,especially in this Spring.But i did buy them in used condition.However they look neat&new,but i can't tell they've been over-used or not.I will try to cycle them a few times, hopefully i could wake their punch up back...

off course it can stand the power but if you never cut the amature ore replace the brushes you will not get a puch that is worth anything

But what will a motor be after a "cut" process?Stronger and less overheat risks?I've they've been selling motor cutters alot here.
