Default Battery charging questions..

I have few questions about Battery charging for you all at 'RCTECH'..
I've been trolling/searching for a while, and I haven't come up with any threads that answer my question. Charging basics...

For example:
A IB3800 NiMH pack.
On a Dura Trax Ice charger what would your settings be?

In other words I'm looking for guidelines/ what others think in regards to basic settings to get the most out of the battery pack(s).

Any information would be great.

It should be very similar with the ICE

Thank you very much Uga. That webpage/tips are awesome. If anyone else has some tips or what not it would be greatly appreciated.

Side question:
After every race, would you recommend cleaning the motor or whats the interval that most are using?

Using batteries again on the same day. I have three 4200's and on race day I run at least one practice with each battery. Then discharge, equalize, and charge them for the actual races. If we have races the next day I do the same thing. Does this affect the batteries very much? Am I reducing their performance significantly? Just wanting to know. Thanx
