could somebody post a discharge curve of the 3200 at 10A and 6.4V cut-off. I'm wondering if these cells are any better than my LiMn's.

I don't get why we don't see more discharge curves on recent LiPo's they have the longest life ever so really to blow one charging out of 500 is like nothing. Not like NiMH where you have 10 good runs which you don't want to waste on taking curves.

Here you can find the ones I've taken of the LiMn: http://forums.radiocontrolzone.com/s...=219459&page=4 post #86

The way I took the curves was easy: charged the pack set my ICE to 10A discharge and 6.4V cut-off (you can go lower but it isn't really give any more info) and started discharging. every 20 sec I recorded the voltage of the pack. then I entered the data in Excel. that's it anybody can do that.

So please post some curves if possible

im now at the point where im seriously considering buying the 3200 for my msx mre.ive heard they will fit.im just concerned about the length of time these batteries take to charge up.i guess having 2 batteries would be a very wise move.also i would require a charger,i see that there is a few options team avionics and the advantage.
is the cheaper one up to the job? i could buy 2 cheaper ones and 2 batteries to keep me going
what do you lot do? thanks

It will be one of the best things you do if your track allows the batteries. I use the triton jr and it works great Chris G has another charger that does anything you could ever want

That charger will work but it will leave you wanting more information imho you'll want a charger more like http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...p?&I=LXMRH8&P= or http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXMAH9&P=0

If you go to A-main hobbies they have them in stock and for 80$ that's not a bad deal at all. http://www.amainhobbies.com/index.php/cPath/1_221_116

go lipo

Can anyone give me a reason why not to Lipo? It seems a hell of alot cheaper than Nimh matched packs w/ longer life. Do you guys do anything speacial when charging...like charging in a fire safe box or is that not nessecary? I am looking for consistency...I race short track carpet oval w/FT TC4,19T money motor......Anyone have a better idea or opinion?

The only reason not to be would be that if your track doesnt allow them.
