So the mod motors only reach top spd faster in most cases and not actually a higher top speed?

Besides from having an AC/DC, does the 16x9v6 have any other advantages?

(I mean the AC/DC version of the 16x5v6 is alot more expensive than the 16x9v6) so i was just wondering about the differences.

They both have identical software...
if you get the 16x9v6 now.... and can power the 16x5v6 from it if you decide to get a second charger...

thx all for answering my questions.
So there really isn't much difference between the 16x9v6 and the 16x5v6 it seems.

Can the 16x5v6 charge alkaline rechargable batteries?

To my knowledge, (correct me if I'm wrong) but, I don't think there are any Alkaline rechargables. They are either NICD, NIMH, or Lithium.

NEVER EVER CHARGE ALKALINE BATT'S!

The only way to put some charge in an alkaline is to leave it out in the sun for a few days. It puts a little charge in them, but not much.

my grandmother used to do that when my toy car runs out its power! alkaline battery same as other drycell batry has develop its chemical, you may charge it but it's your own risk! of course it will regain its power buts its minimal!

hey i advice you just to buy rechargable batts, atleast you may use it over and over again!

happy racin!

Well, not too many ppl have seen this, but check this site out, they maybe crappy batteries, but they are darn cheap over here, that's why i was wondering about them:

Look under the "RAM TECHNOLOGY" section in the website.

Just curious, which pulse charger did you use before? I used an Apex Zigma Plus.

I used a MU-12778a or somethign (the exact number i forgot).. but the model was "Mu". It was a waste of $60.

Btw, I was just curious, does anyone know why on the 16x5v6, it asks you for the mah of your batteries? but it uses peak detection???

I dont know that charger.

The capasity entered, is used to calculate how much mAH there should be charged during a partial charge. It's probably also used to calculate the trickle charge. Dont know if it's used for more, but it doesnt affect the cut off, one of my GP3300 reach 4100 the other day...

Dont know about the trickle charge feature, because I dont use it... But I believe the CDC will choose a trickle charge rate depending on how much capasity. Try it out on some NiCd's pack, if you like. Just play with the same pack and different mAH settings.

Trickle charge setting divides by 10, I think.

Thanks for the reply guys.

Does anyone also know the run time of a Matched Sanyo 2400 NiCd pack??

I saw someone claiming it does 420s. Just wanted to know if that's bs.

I just bought a GP3300 Matched pack for $37.50 USD, runtime about 408s at 30A, Vavg=1.162V just wondering if I got ripped or not?

Thx ALL.
