I had that problem and found that the battery was not balanced correctly so I had to put the charger into recovery mode and it fixed the problem.

How do I get my batteries to come the charger at 8.4V? Or should I buy a new charger that I will be legal to race.

Sounds like you quoted your own answer. What version of the firmware are you using?

I have V5.6, I had to turn off the Plus Charge mode. The manual should explain Plus Charge mode.

I believe those were added after the manual was made. IE the manual needs to be updated.

Anyhow fwiw they are up to 6.0 now.

* Along with the 'LiPo CHG Option' (LCO) selections of FAST charge, 50% storage, 95% charge and 100% charge modes, an additional and separate menu option feature listed as 'COMPLETITION CAR MODE' (CCM) has been added. When CCM is turned ON the profiles for the constant current (CC) and constant voltage (CV) phases of the charge process have been further optimized to ensure that the charge capacity/voltage of the battery is at the safest maximum allowable specs authorized by many racing organizations (and does not charge the cell/battery beyond 100% capacity/voltage)

CCM Mode is only active when turned ON and when charging 1S 3.7V to 4S 14.8V batteries (not 5S 18.5V and 6S 22.2V batteries). Also, when CCM is turned on it will take precedence over any LCO that has been selected. For example, if CCM is turned on and LCO selection has been set to 50% Storage the cell/battery will still be charged fully using the optimized CC/CV profile. As a result we recommend that CCM is turned on only when needed and if charging cells/batteries for use in competition car/truck/buggy racing. It is not necessary to use CCM when charging batteries for any other applications.
