If you are losing power in the last 20-30 sec of the 5 min race, maybe it's a brush issue, or timing. Which turn are you running?

It can do the linear charge thing. However, I plan on trying the phase charging technique. It's still linear, but with different current in the different phases. Like the Straight Record Breaker and the new Orion charger.

Well it depends on a lot of different criteria. What cells are you using, what motor are you running, what ESC are you using?

But generally, charge the cells at 5 amps with .03-.05 peak detect on linear and with GP3300's no trickle charge.

Great information is on Fukuyama's website at www.fukuyamaracing.com and that goes through the whole process of charging/discharging and storing cells.

I'll be running my first off road "Race" in 11 years tonight! We've been running at the local track for about 7-8 months now but just now is the racing program starting. We'll see how well I fair.

That's too far to envy. Try Virginia, it's 54 out and no snow in sight.
