Default Hara's charge rate?

I guess the title speaks for itself... What is Hara's charge rate? And other top drivers in the industry. And does he toss his batteries after a run or two?

seriously... charging your batts at the same rate as the pros, throwing your batts out after 1 run, using the same equiptment as them, drinking the same soda they enjoy, or tiing your shoes like they do..... it won't make you as fast as they are....

Here is Hara's setup sheet for his charger:

14.85 amps? Yeah, right! And I'm sure he's been scarred several times due to exploding batteries.

What charger has the option of charging 14.85 amps...? That charger should be named "EXPLODE" or "FIREWORK"............

Right out of my CE Turbo 35 manual...

The value of the charge current can be set up to a maximum of 19.9 amps at this time, but the TURBO35 will only allow you to run a maximum of 12.0 amps when you push the (START) button.

Good to know that.........and is there a fine print on the Turbo35 manual saying after pressing that START button, you are on your OWN notes..?

Off topic but I know some oval guys will just hook there power supply up to the batteries so there charging at like 12 amps. That gives them so killer power, but there done after one run.

I used to use the old YOKOMO charge cord....plug directly from car batteries to the Sanyo 1200 SCR packs like.....20 years ago. The shorter the length of the cord, the more the AMPS will draw from the car batteries.....simple and direct.
