pheyhoe.

that's sounds great. the good news is that since that was your first run with them the cells will only get better!

good luck at the track.

Easy fix is "do not" fully charge them when storing. Fully charing them for storing will ruin your match packs.

Good luck

none... when you get the cells you want to equalize, charge, run, discharge (possibly repeat depending how many times per day you use each pack), store fully discharged, and equalize again before charging the next race day

Default Fukuyama the best

After racing yesterday in Stock, I qualified 4 quickest out of 50 drivers and the car was just a rocket, it can only get better from here. Thanks Fukuyama for the great packs and also to Anthony Yuen.

Regards,

On a 6 pack cell, discharge it to 5.40v and 4 cells pack, discharge to 3.6v and store it once it is cooled.

Default Novak results

Just wanted to thank Nexus for an excellent coverage and pictures.

Looks like Fukuyama Racing is again very well represented with just Chris Tosolini TQ and getting a hole shot! while Andrew Ellis is in the A-main looking for a win as well. With just two team drivers and lots of Fukuyama Batts owners, this is gonna be sweet! Good luck guys!

Does this look like a nice diagram/setup for a cutoff switch for my bulb discharger? http://www.balakracing.com/autocutoff.htm

sounds to me like you won't have enough time to let your cells cool before recharging them. You should never imediatly start recharging your cells just after you've used them, it will seriously degrade their performance, especially the capacity. If you can get afford it, get a seperate 20-30amp discharger that you can put your cells on while you're using your charger for other cells, should not take long for a pack thats been used for 8 minutes to reach a cut off of 5.4 volts. Then you should leave your packs for atleast one and a half hours for them to cool before recharging. This does mean having a pack for every run if time at your club is short, but the extra expense on cells will work out cheaper in the long terms as you won't need to replace them nearly as quickly.

Default agree'd

Definately do not charge your packs whilst there still hot, You would be better off buying a couple of extra packs and charging before you get to the track and then just repeaking them before your race.
