I just got my new packs today and I want to say thanks to Pro Match. Great packs. I do have a question on the back of the sticker it says charge at 4 amps for mod. Does it matter if I charge them at 5 amps. I've always charge at 5 amps. Thanks again.

You can charge at 5 amps. I have been using 6 amps for stock, 19 turn, and mod with GP33's & 37's and also IB 38's with no problems.

Default Buying Batterys at Paved nationals in Florida

Are you and do most matchers sell batterys (pre-assembled) at National events or is it better to hurry up and buy what I need before event?

Is their an advantage either way? (besides saving on shipping)

I have a few 3300 pro-matched packs that have been around the block a few times. What can I do to restore some of the punch? I currently discharge at 30A, equalize them then charge at 6A for onroad stock racing. Can I do anything to perk them up a little?

try to get a hold of a spintec battery... it'll decrystallize your batteries while keeping them cool during a discharge. it wont bring them back to their glory days when they were brand new, but they wont get any worse. you might get some punch back.

I would recommend you to get what you need before hand. You don't want to wait till the last minute plus you can go ahead and get some runs on them which usually helps the packs out and the numbers should actually get better.

I have also found the Integy Zero 30 discharge gives the packs more punch. I have been using it ofr some time and really like it. The spintec works great also, just be aware it takes a while to do a pack.

My novak smart tray can't help in this matter? I normally cut at .9 per cell...but it can dead short.

Not like the spintec or Zero30.... I have used the Novak and prefer the Zero 30. The 30amp discharge seems to give them more punch.

this is more for equalizing. what jay and i are talking about is when you are done with your race/practice... the remaining charge on your battery should be discharged with the Integy Zero30.. or spintec. Zero30 should take a few mins to finish off the packs... spintec will take about 45-60mins

once it gets discharged to 5.4v (spintec) or when the lights go off on the Integy Zero30... then throw it on the novak smart tray..and equalize it to 0.9v/per cell

btw... the Integy Zero30 will take your cells all the way down to 0.01v per cell if you leave them on there (long enough) after the lights turn off.

hope that helps.
