Default Charge setting for GP3300

I bought the radioshack gp3300 pack, I used micro brain 959 charger and charged with default setting.
I got about 7 minutes run time with my tc4 rtr.

which setting should I be charging?
Options are:
Seven Charge Current Rates: 0.5A, 1.0A, 1.5A, 3.0A, 3.5A, 4.0A, 4.5A
Six Delta Peak Voltage Thresholds: 5mV, 10mV, 20mV, 30mV, 40mV, 50mV

What's your average runtime with gp3300 packs?

Tried 2 cell lipo. but it gets hot - it was ~160 degrees... be careful with li-po

I have a 969 and it was recommended to charge it at 2.5A at 30mv from somebody calling MRC. I got about 20mins on a my team tc4. That's fine for bashing, but racing you should do 4.5A on that 959, but use a fan as that thing will get hot.
