I wonder how many other people got that joke

Here on the west coast alot of people have the GFX . I have the Turbo 35BL and the PitBull, both are great chargers. If you have the money buy the GFX.

I got that, but then again I'm from Europe.
Anyhow the best chargers must be the Victor Engineering chargers.

With all the gizmos, stuff, and crap we tend to take to the tracks with us on race/practice days, does it really matter how much these chargers weigh? Just curious?

for a back up Tekin bc100L you can not go wrong indistructable! The best is CE Turbo line it may cost but you said you want the best! I own a parana digital little thang does a lot for $60!!Had to buy a charger after i burned my Tekins in a freek accident and had $60 . 1-8 cells adj threshold adj.amp nicad-nim ,ac-dc trickleor not up to 10 presets automatic too!Displays time of charge, peak V.imput V,pack V,amphr to bat ,amp setting ,threshold setting,type of charge settingand you can change the audio settings for 5 different tones or none. Try and beat that for the price!!!!!!! It will become a backup after i get a CE.

Everybody has his own "best" charger. I like the Protrak very much. Technical wise it seems somethink like a smaller Victor even if it looks different.
Never had a Victor charger as I couldnīt afford any that time.
But Iīm still using my Victor switching powersupply. Must be about 10 years old now.

Default Victors Rule!!!

You can't beat a Victor! I've had 3, and I won't have anything else now. Oh, and as far as discharging goes: if you know what you're doing...and with SIMPLE modification..... it's VERY simple to discharge safely at up to 45 amps with a Super IQ, IQ2, or IQ3. Now thats how you train a pack! lol Seriously though, a Victor can do anything (i.e zap, motor beak in, match cells, graph on a com., and even test a speed control's effeciency!), and that technology dates back to the early 90's! I just wish they were still in business.

Victor's are awesome but you can't get them fixed. Does anyone know where to get them fixed at or how to? Also, does anybody know the quality of the 16x7 Integy? Also, can anybody give me a good idea of a new charger for 3300's all the way down to stick packs. I'm excluding the CE, Pro Trak and GM. I have been looking at Integy, 969, duaratrax and Reedy specifically.
Thanks

Default Victor Repair

Sure... you can get them fixed. It involves sending it to Australia though. Check out www.rccar.com.au
