I've got 2 packs on the way - Hopefully they will make it to me by Friday, so I can try them on CARPET this weekend...

Things are headed towards a return of the SWT Series, but for
2017 the focus will be on the Encino Velodrome (and dirt oval racing)

Yeah, it became my Series Race, so I'll be running the event on Saturday, and Mike will be doing the On-Road on Sunday.

I wanted to stay over for the On-Road (and still may) but funds are really tight right now...so I don't know if I can swing the 2 days.

I'm hoping the packs I bought will make it in time - to have them for Saturday...to run on the OVAL in a couple practice runs...hopefully with the EAGLETREE Data Logger installed so I can see some Volt/Amp discharge data in RACE conditions.

Well I got it and charged on my new charger (0606i) and it was nice. It was about the same power as the 3200 2s with brushed motor. Is anyone aware of how to balance these kokam cells? They say that it is not nececary* do balance them on the box.

One word for these things... LIGHT.

They feel like an empty plastic case. LOL. They look like a perfect T/A LiPo pack to me. I'll be using one in mine if I can get it installed in the Mi3 in a solid manner. For $30, you can't go wrong.

I know some of our OVAL guys balance the 3200 Orion with the TRAKPOWER balancer

UHM, 20C 2400 battery.
For spec races, is it punchy enough?
For re-using multiple times in 1 day should be good, in the case is very low capacity for a LIPO, could be very short time to recharging it.

For Lipo batteries...regardless of mAh size, if you charge them at 1C...shouldn't they should all take roughly the same amount of time to charge...

Well, it depends.. if you're charging empty packs, then yes, 1C rate whould take an hour to charge regardless of the capacity..

The difference is in the partial charging.. for example, take a 5000mah pack versus a 2400 pack.. both make a 19T run, taking around 2000mAh from each pack.

To fill that back up at their 1C charge rate, the 2400 pack will take 50 mins (2000mAh @ 2.4A) while the 5000 pack will only take 24 mins (2000mAh @ 5A)to recover that same capacity..

Wait, why the different mAh really matters the charge's A?
Honestly, i am still learning LIPOs until preparing for next year.

For lipos, what is the standard amperage we should charge at? I thought it was 1 amp? Can we ever go more than that?
