I loved the 1400SCR's. They could be charged more than once a week and liked to run hot. We used them in boats until the 2000's came out. 1700's just didn't work well in high amp draw applications.
Brushes? We don't need no stinking brushes!!!

1700SCR from panasonic is total crab, very lower voltage, I think 1.07v @ 20amp. The Sanyo 1700SCR(black with rainbow colour) was pretty good actually. But Sanyo 2000 is the best NiCad ever, still have 5 packs.

Yep guys, but were are Sanyo and Panasonic now in the modern battery war. I also remember brands like Saft and even Yuasa made nicad's besides lead-acid batteries.

I hope I'm not the only one here old enough to remember the GE 1000mah cells we used to race with... no shrinkwrap, just a thin cardboard cylinder around the cell...

crap... I didn;'t even use a "charger" for the first two seasons... just a long piece of "resistor wire" direct from a 12 volt car batttery to the pack... and a digital voltmeter to watch for the peak...

First charger I owned was something I made from a circuit I saw in one of the r/c magazines... Al Gore hadn't yet invented the internet back then...

Damn... feelin OLD about now...

Well, I don't know if we really started the 19t thing or not but my local oval track loved to play around with different motor specs. For a while we went with the 21 turn Procar motor for stock. We even had a big handout race with them. When 1/12th started to take off we ran mod until someone had the bright idea of using all our old Procar motors from 1/10 and allowing us to bust them apart and true the coms all we wanted. Then one day we decided to get Cam to make us a bunch of 19t mods to be our spec 1/12th motor. These were not quite todays 19t's since you could still adjust timing all you wanted but these were fantastic running motors with the same wire and wind. It was just a couple years later that fixed timing 19t racing started to spring up.
