It means that the cell was venting.Did you overcharge your battery at all?Thats usually not a good thing.

I would replace the cell personally.But you can try to charge it again and see if it vents anymore.If so,replace it.Then you can use it for practice or club racing still. The reason a cell usually vents is because they have been abused someway somehow and its a safety measure so the cell doesnt blow up.Just be careful.

I think the best thing to do is replace the bad cell ( the one that vented), and use it for a run around pak ,, or take one more cell off and use a 4 cell to run a leathe ...
