Default Two more Newbie Questions

First of all I must say that this is a fantastic site. I am back into racing after almost 16 years away so without the help of this site it would very frustrating to learn all the new things. Ok the questions:

1). How do you conditionprepare rubber tires for carpet racing? TC5 on a carpet track.

2). Batteries, what is the proper care and feeding of EP4600 batteries? Charging discharging etc. How do you charge, discharge, store between races etc?

Thank you

1) I would use a little of your chosen tyre additive to clean the tyres, then apply a bit more for the traction element. When you start picking up speed you'll learn the little bits to make you quicker.

But that should be a good start

2) I would charge at 5amps. 1C is the BRCA (UK guidelines, as is ROAR to thr USA) so 4.6amps for a 4600mah set of cells is considered safe practice.
