Hey gang, just got a satchel pack of 3800's. Charge amps on the label are 6 and discharge at 30 amps. I've emailed Brad and left messages with no reply...must be at a race or??? Just want to make sure I don't hurt theses batteries. What charge and discharge rates are being used with these batteries??? I usually run stock/19 turn. Any help would be appreciated and thanks in advance!!!!

DFroyd.....Yeah Brad is away at a race. You can charge the packs at 6 amps with a .03 cut off. Thats what we always use....just keep an eye on the temp of the cells you dont want them to get above 150deg. If they are getting that hot drop the cut off to .02. Discharge at 30 amps is fine and what is recomended. If there is anything more that you need feel free to ask.

Hey Guys - I had an awesome time this weekend. The format for the race was fantastic. Congrats to all of the Hurricane drivers in attendance. I hope everyone else had as much fun. The website should be updated shortly with the IB 4200's.

Seaball - Kevin is always able to find those things.

Thanks - Brad
