Default Charging 4200 packs

I've been searching the forums the last few days trying to determine exactly how I should be charging my batteries, but have found differing answers. Usually people have recommended what the matchers say, but matcher A says charge to 120-130 degrees while B says 150 degrees. How hot do you charge your packs to? I have SHV and Worlds cells. I typically have gone for 120-125 degrees. If I'm supposed to be charging to higher temps what difference will I see?

How long before hitting the track do you want your packs to peak? I know you want them still warm, but is the hotter the better? If it peaks a bit too soon do you repeak right before hitting the track?

This is what are Pro drivers are doing:

6A linear charger not using the Temp probe.

This weekend at the Japanese Nats Hara who is one of the worlds best is using four seperate chargers to charge each of his four cells individually this give him the most poer for each individual cell.
