After the pack has peaked. Repeak each cell by itself. Now that is a pack to run

I don't go above 6 amps on my IB3800s.
Yeah I know what you mean. I think I was the only one at the corally table charging at 6 amps HAHAHAHA.

Team Corally ALWAYS showed up last to tech to get the most out of their batteries.

I guess its times like this I am glad I am not a GP distributer anymore cause I'd hate to be staring at 10,000 cells with 50,000 more coming no matter what!! You know what I mean. I for one am truly astonished at GP's slow reaction. I know we discussed it before how quickly GP would react if someone started to take a slice of their pie. Whats going on in China??

Intellect is always working on improving their cells. So far they have been super great to deal with as we never see a batch of cells being lower than the previous one so this makes for plenty of great cells to sell.

There has been no major changes to the IB3800s since last October. The only way you can tell is by the average voltage of the cells. If the cells are 1.20+ at 35 amps then they are the latest ones.

On my pulsar 2 I'm charging at 5amps, with 15mv peak detection. Still experimenting though. I'm not a fan of charging at 6amps, as that always seems to get the batteries to hot. (at least it did for 3300's.)

realy for racing most are charging at 6A. the important part is not to let the cells get too hot. monitor them and have them peak around 125 to 130. I usually stop charging at 125. If you watch the temp it will rise to about 130-132 even after you stop charging. for a 6 cell pack on a t35gfx I have it set at .03 delta. but have a temp guage with an alarm at 120. I have 3800 that are about 9month and still take 4100-4200mA

Default Slightly off topic

On an open high speed asphalt road course, what actual on the track run time can you expect from IB3800 with Stock motor? 19 turn?

With a GP3300 and a stock motor 9+ minutes seams to be no problem for me.

If a person wanted to be able to reliably run an 8 min Race with say a 10 turn mod motor, without dumping, would they need to be looking at a 4300?
