Do you guys run your batteries solder in or are you running the plugs so you dont have to solder for battery changes

Just to confirm what John is saying, yes most of the top guys do solder wires rather than use connectors..... Personally I use the corally style tubes, I don't think I would notice a huge difference on the track and convenience is a big deal for me as I have other things to deal with on race days.

Three times in four races, TQ and A-main win with Fusion 3700's.

I managed to add something else to put the icing on the cake this time. Fastest lap of the evening by 0.16 of a second and winning by half a lap ovver 2nd place.

Life is good

Default Can this discharger be used?

Hi all

Just wondering if I am able to use this 20 amp discharger with the pictured fusion pack. It says for Ni-cd batteries but the box says both Ni-mh & Ni-cd batteries.

Ok. I've read to discharge to 5.4 volts but on this indi 20, theres no adjustments. How do I know when to stop? Then once I've discharged them and until the next time I use them (say 1 week), do I place them on the Novak smart tray prior to charging them?
Thanks in advance
