You shouldn't leave lipos fully.charged. Everyone who comes from the.old.nimh days remebers.how.nimh batts where.pushed to the point where packs were only.good.for.a.single.meet. Lipo is going the same way with racers asking for higher and.higher c ratings (like it makes any difference) and packs are once again heading towards being more and.more volatile. If you want to prep a pack for racing try around 80-90% charge and quickly top it up at the track. Keep it at this.level.for the minimum time.possible.

At the end of the day it is safer to turn up to the track and charge at 2C than bring you packs precharged from the.day/night before.
