It's just been a busy racing month for me, I've had to take a lot of time off from work, and dont really want to request more... That's why the Feb race will work out, looks like I'm not gonna make it to Snowbirds, so I need to find a weekend to request off

Sounds like they may have false peaked, discharge them and charge again and they should go all the way through. New cells sometimes will false peak because they arent used to a normal cycle.

Once they get a few cycles on them, they will propably even go longer than that.

pballkid21587 - what charger are you using...just wondering if it gives you a readout on how charge/milliamps went in the battery.


you should have no problem making a 5 min main in TC or 8 min main in 12th scale with fukuyama racing packs....if anything you'll have plenty of juice left after the race
