At what amps do i charge at? What do i do when im done running? i got all these questions and really need your help. If someone has a link or prior posts, it would be great if i can see them.

you charge it until the charger says its done by beeping or something. (what charger are you using?)

6 amps charge i think that goes for 4 cells aswell.

when done charging discharge it and then let it sit for a while. then if your done for the day then put a little storing charge in it so it keeps its shape if you know what i mean.

hope it helped

i was thinking of the dynamite ni-mh/ lipo charger, or the novak ionic-d nothing too serious. Approximately how long does it take to charge? and do i discharge to 0.0 or leave a little?

id say 30min or so, dont go with a dynamite if you have such good batteries, a novak is better. duratrax intellipeak ice charger is a very good charger though, its expencive.
