I wouldnt store them fully discharged as they are different to ni-cad cells which dont mind it.

I keep about 10/15 minutes of charge in mine, then the day I race I tray the cells just before I charge them.

Im sure theres plenty of other ways of doing it, thats just how I have done it

I tray my cells to 0.5volts, as this is what it will discharge them to.

The GP's can handle 0V, but I always choose a cutoff (0.9V or whatever, doesn't matter as long as it is not 0V). That way you are always safe.
