My home made Tail/Stop light globe discharger. It's in a plastic tennis ball cannister with fans on either end of the cannister to provide airflow over the globes

Hi Burlap, does your DIY job have an auto cutoff?

I have really like to build one of these things, but want to make sure that it has an individual cutoff for each cell. some pics would be good...

No, not yet. Might do something, but at the moment it is only visual. Once the fans stop spinning I pull the plug (there is still a small amount of light in the globes however)

I find now if I wait a few months there will be the latest and greatest discharger of the month. I'm not sure about you guys but it seems there is a new discharger every few months. Could it be now one really knows what works best? I have over 300.00 in dischargers and trays in the last two years this is lame. Someone needs to make a discharger that can be upgraded to keep up with the new batteries.

LOL, I think I just had alot more experience with 23t stock motors at that point in time and had a killer way to tune/gear them for 1425g weight and 8mins racing,

the carpet surface was a shock and took a while to get the setup right for the Scythe's flexy chassis.
