No charge I bought the packs had them built and then got really busy an had no choice but to let them sit...

I won't be buying lipo or anything heh.. I'll just sell the completely unused car if this one pack I bought is dead.

At this point I have spent about $2500 on all of my gear and not used any of it for one minute.

Soo at this point all I want is to run the car for 5 minutes on my street.

And then smash it all with my real car

Ok so the new stick pack I bought is charging.

What MV peak detection thing should it be set at? right now it's set at 5mv 30 for the pack.

How long should it take to charge a 3300mah pack at 5amps???

How do I know if the pack is fully charged or just false peaking??

I really need to know the Delta Peak ASAP.

None of the threads are clear..

Some threads say 3mv per battery some say 10mv ?!?!?!!

Welp I give up.

The battery because it's a stick and not a side by side doesn't even fit.

I am not going to be able to put a lipo back either..

The T2R has a metal piece that goes right over the last/first battery and curves to fit the battery... lipo packs are flat and won't fit this curve..

Ahh well..


I'm out.

As far as selta peak is concerned, GP3300 is too long ago for me, but 5mV/cell sounds good. These cells can take a lot more abuse than any of the IB's or EP's out there.

There is a LIPO Ftment thread somewhere on this forum where you can find if your car can hold a Lipo or not and if you need to do extra modifications.

I havent had a T2R or any Xray for that matter, but I noticed (on a picture) you can allways tape the battery in using glassfiber tape, the cutouts for the tape are there.
Cant you just flip the battery hold-down strap with the flat surface over the battery, thats how you could fit a stickpack in a TC3 back in the day.
