If you dis-assemble the hoods for cleaning, then absolutely you will have to re-align.

It is also a good idea to check your Brushes for alignment after every rebuild, especially if you change brand of Brushes.

Dead shorting cells? I think Id rather have a grenade go off in my pants than one of my packs going off on my table.

DO NOT dead short NiMh cells!

I have personally tried it and NOT noticed ANY performance gains.

What I did get was a severe loss in runtime (From over 3300 mah to less than 3000mah).
