LOL 4 shades huh.... Pete try 6 at .03 cut off. If the temp in the building is on the cool side goto .04. If the packs are not getting to 130 deg raise the peak detect until they do. Just don't go over .05.


Leave some charge in them untl next race day... then right before you charge them take them down to zero on a tray. Don't let them stay on it too long after the lights go out.. Then charge!

I have been charging my 3800's like this for almost 5 months with no problem... THey don't like heat like the 33's did so be careful on charge time, don't rush it or get behind before a race and need to bump up the amps....

Forget the bar/restaurant, I'm only concerned with the bar part.

I am running a test with our live video/audio now. The quality is low because I am running video from my DVD. But if you can tune it in then you are all set to see the live audio/video we will have from the Snowbirds! I am running the video from Steel City last year of the mains.

For when it goes live at 9am Feb. 4th will it be free or do we have to pay money and sign up somewhere? I couldn't find anything either way so I thought I would ask. Thanks
