Default GP 3300 Care...

Hello,

I just got myself some new GP's, and am looking to take good care of them. I have a Turbo 35 Stealth, and have heard to adjust my delta peak to have the batteries peak at 125 F. (supposedly that's the ideal peak temp for GP's) What seems to be a good setting? Also, I have heard from many fellow racers a discharge tray is good for keeping the cells in tiptop shape. I have an Integy Indi-Booster 2 tray, but I know you're not supposed to let all the lights at the bottom wink out like I used to with Ni-Cd's. When are you supposed to take NI-Mh cells off a tray to prevent discharging them too deeply?

Thanks for the help!

Whats up,

Go into the SMC Forum here on RCtech and ask Korgae. He's probably one of the head reps for jaco and SMC, and he can help you out. Thats who I asked about mine.
