I'm in the mood for a new charger and I was wondering what the prefered charger is amongst Surge drivers. My previous chargers were an LRP Pulsar 2 and a CE pitbull (not the x3). I've been using a friends Orion Advantage and the results have been decent. If anyone suggests a step charger like the orion what different step profiles do you like? Finally, what features should I look for in a charger to give me that extra competitive edge?

Thanks

P.S. Gary YGPM

I've thought about a turbo 35 but I don't want to have to lug that huge thing around everywhere I go. The APS 3-in-1 actually looks like a charger I might be interested in just because of its numerous features. But... how does it charge?

I'm still leaning toward a step charger because I've herd you can do wonders to your batteries with them. I race mostly stock and some local guys pump up the amperage to like 8-10 amps for the last 200-300 mah and it makes them ballistic at the start of the race.

It charges very well, in fact i usually charge on that, not the turbo.

If only it could discharge, my turbo would be staying at home.

I was wanting some info on it

I plan on racing the Roar Nats next month at Halo Hobbies

is this motor Raor legel ?
what type of motor based is it ? I see atlas based
is there a possible pic of this motor and what brushes does it take ?

thanks
jason crist
The guidelines for 19T are different between oval and road. If the Reedy and C2 are legal for the Nats, then the Atlas should also be legal.

So another weekend has come and gone... Fortunately I have good news to all of those who are looking for some new packs!

The Surge SUPER SALE is ON!! You won't see GP3300 prices this low again this year!! We're clearing out remaining inventory of our GP3300 cells in preparation for the arrival of the GP3700 cell!

Also, X-ray ceramic bearing kits have been packed are just about ready to go!! They'll be posted for sale tomorrow!

This has been a Surge public announcement... BEEP!!
