fatdoggy, your trick did it, i basically lined up all 12 cells, pos-pos,neg-neg. put it on the charger for a sec. Then put the 2400 seperatly on the charger, and it charges good now, thanx "faty", and pops, you saved me a battery guys.

Thanks Pops, I just do not know what my likings are as of yet with the speed controllers. Fatdoggy and Pops have been very informative, thank you again.

HeY!!!

Another thing about dead shorting a pack is that it will increase the voltage to a cell by about .10-.20 but will take away the runtime by about 20-40 secs. it all depends on the pack also how much it will change like old or new pack.

If you are lucky you will get a 0.01 increase in voltage the only guarentee is you WILL lose the runtime forever. If you do get a gain in voltage it will most likely be for a few runs then drop back again. Dont bother deadshorting.

I have personally tried the Dead Shorting technique on my GP3300's and was NOT happy with the results.
Even leaving the packs sit between races with 0.9v per cell will result in a loss of runtime. If runtime is an issue, keep them partially charged between race days.

Recently I purchased a LRP V7.1 on a whim to replace the Tekin and I immediately noticed an overall improvement in the Cars performance.

Scan the Threads in the Electric forums here and read up on the different brands and models available. Make your decision based on your budget, needs and liking.

Yup i have to agree with pops here, i started on a 50 M-troniks forward and reverse speedo with no limit, but running a 17 single the heatsinks on it were getting hot. The reverse was good as a n00bie learning to drive. I switched to a 7.1 and noticed a decent increase in runtime and overall speed compared.

Thanks guys, the LRP v7.1 is one of my considerations.
