This is info gathering for future customers questions if they arise
Use the guide on the Fukuyama website. I use experiance to adjust for the class I'm running, the competition I'm going up against and the track conditons. Particularly the amb. temp. If it's cold and you're racing outdoors like I do mostly, you'll need to bump up your delta peak to get the cells up to a good racing temp. Some chargers have a little different settings as far as delta peak go. Some you set accross the pack, some you set per cell. As long as you're close to the reccomendations, you should be fine.

Raced at Enid RC Speedway this weekend, and all I can say is, "WOW!"

Got to the track just in time to setup and make the drivers' meeting. Absolutely NO practice time! lol. I guess that's what qualifying is for, right?

Anyway, the car had MAD rip out of the corners and amazing top end (Sobottka - used that Binary that you tinkered with at the OK Invitational.) The battery's only lost a smidgen of punch towards the end of the races but I was still able to turn good lap times.

Unfortunately, while leading the main I suffered equipment failure (alright, alright, I snapped a c-hub... totally my fault!) and had to pull but the car was working well.

Kudos to Dan and his team for an excellent product!

When u put the novak on Nimh setting the highest u can charge is 1.5 amp. the battery says 6.0 amp.

Should i charge on the rev Pulse or linear?

If it is a new novak Mill you can charge on nimh from 1 to 7 amps, I use 5amps on nimh mode.
