I have been using .4 on the 3700's with good luck. I am not saying that .4 is the magic number but it seems to be working well. Good Luck!! Hope this helps you.
I meant to ask do you know my buddy Colin aka MR Jolly? Good Luck!!

Cheers!
Jay

You say that you charge your packs at 6 amps. The label on my 3700 packs says they were charged at 5 amps.

Should I be charging them at 6 amps instead?

Also, I race every other weekend, so how should I handle whether or not to leave a charge in the cells between races?

My first weekend with the packs was excellent. Plenty o powa' and never even thought about dumping.

They are matched @ 5 amps but I charge at 6 for 19t and Stock(for mod go with 5) Racing. I am not saying that is the only way to fly...just my way,LOL. I usually race every 2 weeks myself and leave the packs discharged between weekends. Anything over 2 weeks I put some charge back in them. Again this is the way I do things, everyone has their "own" methods. These work excellent IMO.

You will need to contact PMRGirl, she would have to do it, I do not run any 4 cell therefore I can't give the dimensions.
