Default Quick Battery Questions

I was just wondering how long you can safely leave a GP3300 battery fully charged. They would be charged for about 12 - 14 hours. I need to charge them tonight, but race tomorrow. i won't have time to charge before i race due to work. Will this hurt my batteries? Will I see a noticable difference in performance? I am racing both stock and 19T, I will have 8 batteries, but I think foir stock I will use only 2 as they are both 1.19+. For the 1.19s, between runs do I need to fully discharge them before charging again? Each batter needs to be run twice. Thanks

i must say that i loose alot of speed if a have just left then for 10 hours but its a good idea to do that when you are training the track because it lets you get a feeling with the track

You don't need to fully discharge them to recharge them just make sure u let them fully cool down before you charge them again. As for having them charged the night before it shouldn't hurt them but repeak them when you get to the track as they begin losing charge the minute they come off the charger.

So you think it will hurt my speed that much? maybe I'll just charge my 19T battereies and charge up the stock when I get there. I will just use a mod batterie for stock if it isn't ready in time.

I'm a newbie here, so bear with me What do you mean by charge for "training"? Maybe you can tell me what you would charge your packs at tonight, and then what to charge at the track? I was just planning on charging at 6amps tonight, then topp them off before the race. Would I see a performance decrease then? I need every ounce of speed I can get in stock.
