Yes, but only maybe. They haven't gotten their several days rest yet; so, I may know more later in the week.

Overall, I would say that getting 6 months of racing out of a pack is more than I originally expected. More time would be nice; but, I wouldn't give up the wins for battery longevity.

Thanks.

Well, I hope we got all that out. All commentary has been appreciated; but, I could tell what info was from the experience side as opposed to speculation/theorey.

BigDog,

You are right. I was looking for experienced input about what had happened. The way too hot cells on both ends of the pack was contrary to all temperature readings I have been getting over the past few months. Thanks to you.


Raving,

You (or your dad) could be right; but, I detect no personal experience with such charging issues. If you keep reading these forums, you will gain valuable insight about r/c car racing. That knowledge will be "transferrable" and you can apply it to other facets of your life. Listen to your dad. Thanks to you.

There are several interesting aspects of battery and motor performance that I am striving for. I am trying to get up to speed with the performance side to get the most for stock motor racing. For me, battery and motor longevity are secondary to their performance.
