corally: This is probably an HV pack but the runtime numbers are false. There are no true cells past 375.

Keep in mind that Orion uses the Lavco matching equipment which is completely different than the Competition Electronics equipment used in the U.S. Plus GM uses their own matching equipment as well.

corally: HR means NiMH rapid charge. IT doesn't mean HV. The RC-3000H had the same markings.

Leaving them on a tray for an extended period of time will result in a 15-25 second drop @ 30 amps. If your not racing mod the drop in runtime shouldn't matter.

Ian: Is yours the black colored, "Powers" tray or something similar? Black with lots of little LEDs around? Did you check the individual cell voltage? I know when I take off my pack from the Integy Activator X each cells is like at 0.3 volts....

Thanks.

Regards,
Alvin

jygs,

SMC suggests [email protected] .070v. but with the hotter temp. in the country, i suggest you lower peak detect.

pag play or practice, i use 4amps at .048v peak detect for the pack. for race, i use 6amps @ .060 peak detect.

Hi I've read most of this thread and I cant find an answer to this, so here it goes.
Who matches the best 3000HV's? Im looking at SMC, Reedy, Trinity or Orion. I want the best available so that i can have the edge, which I think is SMC, but I haven't heard much about the Reedy Extreme cells. I have Reedy WC zappers 2400's at the minute and am exceedingly happy with them , so I am conidering staying with Reedy.
Any input please?

I don't think you'll find any difference between the top packs from any of the big matchers. Stay with any of the big names and you won't go wrong.
