They are 1000s. They are to go on my ProSpec. I've always used alkalines to power my stuff, but that was then.
What kind of charger are you using?

If it's a wall type that puts out about 50 it'll take overnight with a discharged battery.

If you use a peak detecting charger that'll work with NiMh then you can set it at 700 mA with the lowest detection and let it stop by itself.

In general for a fully discharged battery:

Battery capacity (mAh) / Charge rate (mA) of your charger = Hours it takes

Example fully discharged battery:

1000mAh battery / 200mA charger rate = 5 hours approx.

Orion recommends that you don't use a charge rate higher than 900 mA for their 1000 pack.

Ok, so I have a wall charger that outputs 55ma. So I'm looking at about 18 hours or so?

Hey guys. This is my just built brand new ProSpec. I break in the engine tonight. Speaking of, anyone know any good break-in sites?

Yep, that would be overnight, but I not sure how discharged your battery is when you got it.

dtm's site is a good one.

BTW your front left shock collar looks pretty low. What's your ride height like?

Actually I haven't messed around with the setup at all. I'll do that later after the engine break-in. I did a tank full tonight, but my igniter's battery went out.

I would go for either RB X12T 5 port or Novarossi RS12T S5, I own both, they both are very very powerful!

What is the difference between the two? Since both are actually produced by Nova Rossi?

The S5 has different timing.

From my experience, the RB X12T 5 port has better bottom end and mid range and the S5 has better topend!

Both are short rod type engines. I would think that they have similar characteristics? No?
