How many times do I cycle them before i get the most out of it?

I use LRP Pulsar Comp, could somebody using the same charger and batteries post their charging set-ups?

Much Appreciated!!

Pretty much the basic stuff.

These mako motors are strong motors but be careful not to over gear the motor because heat can hurt the magnets.

track size of 80 to 90 feet use 7.3 to 7.8
100 to 140 feet use 6.6 to 7.0

Remember the stock motor always comes out hot but to much heat will hurt.
rangulo.. believe it or not... most of the people at socal run their monster motors between 6.5 to 7.6. yes someone runs their motor at 6.5 depending on the layout. so its a very common thing to gear a monster pro at 7.3 depending on the track layout. everyone usually stays between 7 and 7.5. we only know of one person who gears it at 6.5

you can always put the spur on the motor and the pinion on the spurgearholder

Well.....actually I've switched back to the tub...( and made some heavy modifications...secret..secret!) plus in addition to making the motor area larger, and for this hot wheather I think I just might run a 5 VDC fan in that little small area. It will provide enough cooling and most who've used a fan with that amount of power draw have had plenty of power to last the race. Maybe its just that lately its been REAL muggy down there at the track.

Lem2- These packs should be run in your car not the T35. Everytime you run a pack as a cycle you use up one of your runs. I run the packs for mod immediatly and for stock I tend to run packs that are not brand new so the cells are working more like one cell versus having 6 cells.

Hebiki Maybe because you guys run indoors the motors will hold a bigger gear. Here in florida we run 6.5-6.6 on a track that has a huge sweeper and a track size of 140 feet by 70 feet.

for fukuyama... the team drivers get all the 1.180+ batteries. any left over are sent to the hobby shops (like speedtech rc).

if you can get HIGH 1.170s... get them. i was able to get 1.183.. but it took awhile to get them because team drivers get priority. most of my packs are 1.179s.

I have a equlizer board with no cut of or electronics on it..

Should I use it to discharge my new Fuku cells after a run ?

When everyone say that the cells should be discharged to 0.9V is that then their voltage when discharging or when they are resting ?

Thanks for you help

Personally, I wouldn't use it. .9v is the voltage while discharging. As soon as the discharge load is taken away, the voltage will bounce back up above 1.1 or so per cell. You really should equalize with a tray with a cutoff of .9v to make sure you're not over discharging the cells.
