Any of you experimented with deadshorting the EP's? Obviously there will be a loss of runtime, but with the capacity of a 4200 it's not that big of a deal for stock and 19 turn racing.

Brad.....thanks for the packs....I have cycled them out 4 times a day for the last 3 weeks and they are still cycling strong....Maybe I should race them once huh? I figure its better to use up all the life cycles of a cell cycling it then racing it, because then I can just blame the cells that they are weak after all that when I suck.

Good luck to all the suckers go to the Rubber tire race at Trackside and the race at the Invite race at the Gate at the end of the month.


PSÖ.who knows how many washings does it take to wear out a pair of Leviís?

RB do not dead short them you will start to pop cells for some reason the only cells that liked to be dead shorted were ni-cads all nickel metal do not the run time drops off a lot and sure the voltage goes up but figure out the curve you have better voltage with more run time and you dont want to get into the nasty voltage curve with nickle metals
