Default Storing Batteries

The carpet season is over for me and i am wondering how i should store my GP3300's?

I heard to just put alittle charge in them and every 2 weeks cycle them?

Deadshort? (I have never done this, and i heard it really doesnt help, i may be wrong)

I am really not going to use my packs for almost a month or 2.

Sell them and get 3700s when you return to racing.

I believe you're right... Dead shorting does increase volts but dead shorting for a long period of time is generally not good for your batts... I read from the Pro-match site that they do not recommend dead shorting...

Check out the SMC thread http://rctech.net/forum/forumdisplay.php?forumid=45
Accoriding to them you can store batteries for up to 5 or 6 months before the performance deteriorates.
