no problems~

you may have to play around with the peak setting, depends on the pack's temp. if too hot go lower and if too cold go higher

Delta peak is a little trial and error. Just make sure the pack dosen't get too hot. If it starts over heating stop it and turn down the delta and try again. I had one pack of the original 3300's that had to be baby'd and have the delta turned way down or it would get too hot.

I'm not familiar with that tray. Does it have a voltage cut off?

It takes the voltage down to zero. The company claim that with correct usage the tray can increase the voltage between two and ten percent. I have only seen these trays in the last month and am wary of taking my packs to zero voltage.

to me that discharger is almost exactly the same as trinity's real time 2, which is just a box with some resistors

it looks cool tho, specially when you stack 4-5 together

I would recommend a discharge tray with a .9 volt cutoff per cell. A tray like the Rayspeed or Novak would be a good choice. GP3300's do not like to go down to 0 volts, unless you decide to deadshort, but Fukuyama Racing frowns on this procedure due to the risks and chance of explosion if not done correctly.

LosiRob - I would expect to see the announcement after the worlds which Fukuyama has been very busy matching cells for. I would say probably Mid-November once everything calms down a bit at HQ. Stay tuned

John

Which try would be better for the Fukuyamas? Novak Smart Tray? or Rayspeed? THe Rayspeed seems smaller and more compact but the novak looks nice as well.

Either one. I have a Rayspeed and love it. But I got mine long before Novak had theirs out. I guess if I were buying a new one, I'd probably get the Novak just because it's cool looking. But really, they both do the same thing. As long as it can cut off @ .9v you'll be fine.

Thanks Jon

I just got the novak smart tray, but i thought of getting the Rayspeed. I think the rayspeed looks nice as well and it has those screws instead of those tabs.

Honstly, the screws are the only thing I don't like on the Rayspeed. They're just kind of a pain because they're so small.

Jon has fat butter fingers, that's why he can't work the Rayspeed screws Haha, just joking. I think the Rayspeed screws work great and I like the unit because it's small and compact, easier to fit in my Xray pit bag. The Novak would be difficult.
