Default Dead shorting batts

yo...
i m new ..
and i read from somewhere tat some brand for batteries says their batteries respond well to the effects of dead shorting.

So i was wondering how to dead short a pack ?
make sure each cell is below 0.9v and juz connect the + and - with a wire?

and can anyone give me advise on the Do's and Dont's of dead shorting batteries?
and is there any particular brand of cells tat are not suitable for dead shorting ?

thankz a million.

dead shorintg is taking each cell down to 0v per cell and attactching a jumper wire from positive to negative. it reduces internal resistance and provides more punch at the sacrafice of less runtime and overall bettery life. the gp3300's respond the best to dead shorting. im not sure about 37's, but i hear that deadshorting 38's is a waste

Lost don't get caught up in the battery mind game. Practice driving clean first and when you are able to get around the track without hitting anything durning your runs then look for other options.
