Default peaking while connected to ESC?

I hardwire the leads of my esc to the batteries. I was wondering if I could peak the batteries with the esc still connected.

As long as your ESC is OFF, it would be the same as charging it with out it soldered. Switch on? Could be a problem.

So MY answer is YES as long as the ESC is OFF. I do it.

From the Fukuyama web site:
Quote:
FREE DRAWING CONTINUE FOR THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER FOR ALL FUKUYAMA RACING BATTERIES OWNERS

1st Prize: 1 pack of 1.18+
2. 2nd Prize: 1 pack of 1.170-1.179
3. 3rd Prize: 1 pack of 1.160-1.169

This drawing will include customers who purchase our packs since November 01, 2003 to the end of November 30, 2003._ You will automatic enter the drawing for EACH BATTERY PACK you purchase._ The more packs you purchase the higher chance to win these incredible 1.18 packs._ Drawing will be held on December 1, 2003.
I guess we get a little more time to try and win

And it looks like they have 1.15s back in stock. Can power cubes be far behind?

Jei,

Best to disconnect the batteries from your ESC before charging. Although if your ESC is shut off, there still might be a risk of voltage spikes going into the esc and vice versa and you might get a false reading.

Yes! Chris Tosoline did awesomely and won against other Professional modified drivers. Jay did just as well coming in second place. It really made me feel good that pro guys at this level also rely on our stuff for the win.

Default Motor Schedule

We're still working on our motors but we'll probably come out with just stock first and move into a full line of different turns such as 19 spec and down to 7t.

We anticipate a time frame around the 1st week of Christmas.

Thumbs up Whoo hooo!

HEY! I Won! AWESOME!!!!!!!

Thanks again Dan, Steve and Jimmy, You guys have exceeded my expectations on customer support and the like. I am EXTREMELY happy with your products and look forward to many more to come. Dan, YGPM.....

I've got a special gift from Phoenix for you guys, I'll bring it to the track on Saturday @ the grand Prix.

On a side note, I knew that rubbing my belly would help me win! (Now, don't any of you try anything funny.....)

As far as SoCal: Tosolini (Sp?) put on a driving clinic to those who want to see what a great set of batteries can do for you. He was blazing fast didn't even come close to dumping. Now, I just need a Yokomo.....Anyone want to buy a Losi???? hee hee
