I always discharge between heats in Stock.
In mod I am not quite as worried on a club level.
Charge at 6.0amps with a .05 or 5mv/c cutoff.
If the pack sits more than 12-15 minutes after the charge then hit it with a 6.0amps .01 or 1mv/c for repeak.
Goodluck.
If they seem flat you might find someone with a tray to equalize them.

I charge as the manual suggests.....5amps /10mV.....

i've tested higher volt threeshold (30mV and 50mV) at the same race and I noticed that my fastest laps was the same, only the runtime was increased, but once I run 19T motors I don't need this extra runtime.....

hey john... i set mine at 10mv per pack during the summer and 20mv during the winter time. if you want more runtime, increase the cutoff, but it'll make your batteries hotter.

hope that helps.

yep, you can play with peak setting to gain some runtime, I think you won't increase any punch or top end......
