http://www.big-daddyracing.com/index...d&productId=26

Email me if you want one, I have to do those as preorders, If the manuf. has then you are looking at 2-3 days for me to get it and then 2-3 days for you to get it.

Am I the only one NOT getting the e-mail updates when this thread is updated?

This is irritating - let's see if this post re-enables my subscription...

Can anyone using the Duratrax ice tell me their setting for charging their GP3700 packs?

Thanks

5mv threshold for the pack

temp sensor set to detect at 120 or lower

charge rate 6amps

Each battery can be a bit different. Easiest way to set up the mv threshold would be to start at the lowest value and charge the pack. It will peak to soon, ie: low temp, then increase the threshold. The goal should be that the battery peaks around 120 plus or minus a few degrees. If you are charging at a lower amp rate I feel that you can peak the pack a bit warmer.

The reason I say this is that at 6amps I see my battery temps raising sometimes about 10 degrees after I remove the pack from the charger. If I charge at a lower rate they may only go up 5 degrees after peaking.

Play around and just pay attention to your first few cycles until you are satisfied you have it set up properly.

If you go to IB's be VERY careful your first 3-5 cycles as they are a bit sensitive until they have been cycled a few times. Watch your temps closely on those IB's.

yes it should be fine. I used lower values on those older gp33 rainbow cells from a few years ago but the recent batteries are top notch. I haven't cast my full vote yet on the IB's compared to the GP's as I really like the durability of the GP's. A few more months of running twice a week and I'll have my vote finalized how I feel about the IB's.


Enjoy the gp33/37's as they rock!

I think you will be very happy with the new batch of IB's. They appear to be very durable.
