If you're getting to the track and there is some storage charge in the pack, I would pulse in the tray. If it's right after a run and the car didn't slow down, I'd pulse then too.

Right before the charge, I'd linear in the tray.

In other words, an empty pack, that you're going to equalize just before charging, go linear. A pack with some charge in it, left over from a run, or from storage, go pulse.

something I never saw asked or addressed is

WHAT Type of racing? What type of car? Type of track? Have you ever raced before?

You mentioned you will be running 3.5 MOD and I believe I read 5 cell...

if you've never raced before, and are jumping in with these batteries and a 3.5 motor...worrying about the amp draw and battery life will probably be the LEAST of your worries...getting the CAR Hooked up and learniing to drive will probably be much more important.

if you are running road course, and geared properly, those batteries should work great for racing.... a 3.5 brushless motor with 5 cell will turn around 63,000 rpm with no load....and close to 32,000 under race conditions loaded... so HOLD ON.

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)

from storage:

3.) rest the pack until its back to room temperature.
4.) charge @ 5amps with 05mv delta settings (adjust depending on the cells peak temp. it should be around 125-130degF)
5.) RUN THE PACK!

from the run:
1.) pulse discharge down to 0.9v per cell
2.) rest for atleast 1hour
3.) linear discharge down to 0.9v per cell
4.) charge @ 5 or 6amps with 05mv delta settings (adjust depending on the cells peak temp. it should be around 125-130degF)

**packs i used, IB4600.
-peaks around 5100mah (after 3months of use.)
-peaks around 4700-4800 (after the 3rd month.)

Just always make sure that after using the pack, put a partial charge in it. around 15-20minutes of charge time and check them after 3-4days for voltage drop in your ctx-d2.

Enjoy LIPO hahaha! kidding

BLABLABLA BLA BLA BLA BLA.... Too much work LOL

I dont miss the crap at all!! LIPO for life! Or untill we exploit them the way we did nicad and nihms....

Hi , im bringing this thread back beacaus i said that i will say how are my cells going on .

So, i have used each packs 3 times and i have cycled them 5 times and they still peak at 4357 mah , almost each charge .

all pack "peak cut " between 4325 -4386 mah .

Can i have my pack to cut with the capacity instead of peak cut ?

Thanks for any advice
