One of our mod sedan racers has been using 7 amps with a .07 peak detect on the Pitbull with real good results.
Danny, Both the HVs and ths SMH I have are unmatched loose cells. The SMHs have been voltage enhanced, but not the HV.

I would agree with you that the HVs tend to feel fairly robust but I'm still experimenting with the charge rate and delta peak.

Harshguy: You can set your T-35 to 7 cell and this should fix the problem. Just remember to put the peak detect to 5.40 V.


If you want to keep your runtime up don't cycle them to often. You should also do a 1 peak charge with a .07 peak detect instead of a 2 PK charge.


We ran a pack in mod sedan with a 7 single on foams with 4 minute races. This is probably the most extreme type of racing and our test packdropped 10 seconds @ 30 after 25 runs. The voltage stayed up. So far they seem to be holding up very well.


Ovalman: Once the runtime is gone there is nothing to do. The RC3000H would either keep it's runtime and lose voltage. Or if you trayed them they would keep or gain voltage and lose runtime.

OK, maybe I missed it somewhere, but are you suppose to take the NiMH batteries all the way down? Do you dead short them or stop at some point? Do nothing at all but be sure to use once a week?

I have hopped from board to board and comments made contradict each other.

I have tried my first pair of SMH and they were awesome! I charged at different rates minimum 4, maximum 6 with a M-Pro. Now I want info about proper after-race care and storage.

So when will these cells hit state side?

Speedo yes ...the HV's have higher voltage on the cycler and you can tell they do on the track. I haven't had the HV's as long (obviosly) but the SMH's lost runtime, although gained voltage throughout the 6 months I'e had them ...one of them has lost nearly 100 seconds of runtime. BTW - this new batch of HV's seems to be even better, only cycled twice and already have higher voltage numbers than my original set

Danny/SMC - Is cycling them once a moht to much? I cycle all my bats once a month to "re-rate" them in terms of which are practice/qualifier/main packs. Also, what cutoff do you suugest for SMH's? I've been using the same profile for both SMH's & HV's.

i just got my hands on these new sanyo hv's. voltage looks real good @ 1.41, but the ir is considerably higher (22). on my best panasonic smh, the voltage is 1.32 and ir is 17. i asked what the difference is, but the guys at the track told me not to even bother. just look at the voltage. i have to admit, the high voltage is what hooked me. when buying panasonic smh's, i pay close attention to the ir. so, this kind of goes against what i've been accustomed to. anyway, i haven't even assembled 'em... but i do look forward to see their potential. oh yeah, they're priced about the same as the panasonic smh's ($69.95).

Has anyone run these for stock... or just mod? I've heard once the runtime drops that they are perfect for stock racing. What are your feelings on this?

Danny - Whats the part # for SMC HV's? I would like to look up pricing/availibility at work tues..

TSR6, I only run stock! That's what I've been using these for at first I was "apprehensive" about the SMH's being better than 2400's for stock racing ..and they were, so I wasn't that leary of making the jump to the HV's.

Well, I'm just not ready to dump $80 into something that might be ment for mod. Everyone i have heard say like them, also run mod... so i just wasnt sure how people like them in stock. I might order them tommorow if i find the part numbers, and if they are in stock at the distributor

TSR6: THanks for the pic. I certainly expected them to do something a little more to seperate the new cells from the look of the old ones. I guess they didn't feel it was neccesary.

Harsh: It depends on how much Trinity slips them under the table! ...LOL

Can you run them 3-4 times a day like you can with the SMH's?

The cells are a little more noticable than what you think.. *holds up his Peak 3000's* Yeah... tons of white & yellow... the new cells only have one "stripe" of yellow/white fade.. color... thing... yeah..something like that

Speedo - I was told that once they are cool they are ok to run, and like the other cells, they get better on the second run. I'm not positive.. but thats what i have been told..
