well basically it lowers the Ir thus increasing the voltage..but you have to sacfrifice runtime.

i heard a lot of people use solder between the 2 terminals..if the solder burns/melts then there is to much charge in the packs, if it doesnt melt then its fine.

There's no point deadshorting your packs if you are not a serious racer looking for the absolute max in performance. Deadshorting will decrease the the pack's overall life.

And if you are a serious racer, the overall life of the battery doesn't matter anyway. There will probably be a new and better battery in a few months.
