you should probably just charge them at 5.5 amps or so. And if they false peak the first time its ok. Cycle them after the charge.

It all depends if the 4200's are legal at your track. The 3800's seem to be the best roar-legal cell at this time.

Charge this battery pack on NiMh Auto, use it at up to 40A, and store part charged. On test, our packs at the start of the discharge curve are holding 6,5V when discharged at 39A. High performance 7,2V 6 cell 3600mAh SubC NiMh battery pack intended for use in cars, and equally suitable for club racing in boats. These packs are also suitable for use in series as a 12 cell boat or aircraft battery pack.

This is the pack that we use in SWAMBC R2R competition - with consistent high placings!
