BTW- You'll see some other trays on that page. Personally, I don't reccomend going with those. I've not had good luck with Integy products. I know a lot of guys on here like their stuff. That's fine for them. Their quality is cheap IMO. Not only that but the trays don't have voltage cutoffs. I don't want to have to babysit my cells while they're discharging.

i think it's a personal choice...

I like 0v cutoff trays, you can "play" with these units, traying your cell for minutes you equalize the cells and keep the runtime, AV and IR, let the cell on the tray for hours or days you'll improve AV and reduce IR, loosing some runtime....

Integy makes a tray that's almost identical as rayspeed one....

That's too much like dead shorting your cells and that's a whole other discussion. Fukuyama does not reccomend deadshorting.

Integy is selling the one from Eagle Racing and this one is the same as the Rayspeed beside the case.

I also think deadshorting isnīt very good for NiMh batteries.

Oh, I wasn't talking about the tray being like dead shorting. I was talking about equalizing below the reccomended cut off. The tray looks good. My biggest gripe with Integy products has been the hardware quality. I have an Indy 16X5 that a couple months after I got it, the Back/Setup button and the "DEC" selector button went out on it. I had the reactor 30 amp discharger for about a month until it litterally burned itself up. I have the Eagle Lathe and don't really like it. Infact I'm probably going to be raplacing that soon with either a Hudy or a Phantom. It's just not the highest quality stuff out there. But again, that's just my experiance with them. I'm sure they have had a lot of satisfied customers.

John - a friend of mine just bought one of those bad boys... Wow. Impressive craftsmanship, that's for sure. Now, I just gotta convince the wife I NEED one of these.

Can you recap how you got your significant other to okay the GFX purchase?

I don't know how it happened. I think she just saw it in my buddies pit and said I should have one. I'm debating right now between the GFX and a really good lathe. What to do?

It depends on the ambiant (sp?) temp. and if you're charging indoors or outdoors. I race outdoors alot and if it's a hot day they should get up to about 125-130. Cooler days in the high sixtys or below they'll be about 10 degrees cooler. You want to get them around 130 -140F. Indoors thay will probably get up to 140 with that setting. I'm pretty conservitive about how hot I get the cells and like to get them around 130.
