How long should you wait to recharge a 3700 pack after a 5 min run? Should you discharge it first before you recharge.

You should always discharge your battaries after your run, and then put them on a discharge tray before you recharge them. I have enough packs that for racing I only charge one of my packs once a day at most, 2-3 times a week. But if you want to charge a battery more than once a day (which I know a lot of people do), I would let it cool and 'rest' for atleast 1 1/2 hours, if not more.

For all my batteries that I don't store deadshorted, after I run them I discharge them at 30 amps down to 5.4v. Then right before I charge them I put them in a Novak Flatline tray (any discharge tray works though) for about 10 minutes. If you don't have a discharge tray you should really pick one up, it's one of the best ways to keep your packs running well next to having a good charger. Hope this helps.

Try putting your cells in a mildly discharging equalising tray for about 2 to 5 hrs right before you race. You will get WAY more into your cells and it will mean you get more run time (up to 30 seconds) at 30A discharge. When I charge my 3700's I generally put 4700Mah into the cells, and I have put over 4800 into them a few times now.

I like the really cheap integy tray, it discharges at .5A,

Chris.

I also raced today. We had to run the main from 2 weeks ago. Plus our regular round. In the first main I got T boned and was out for the entire race. When it came time for the second main I was able to get out in front and run a steady race which got me a second.

I raced on road in the Florida state series this weekend for the first time in a long time. Still trying to get my on road mojo going again. I was 4th after the first round, then went 3 seconds faster and dropped to 7th, then in the final round with a couple wrecks I went about 2 seconds faster and dropped to 12th....LOL. My JRX-S was handling really well and I can make a few excuses for missing the A by .4 seconds, but running a team mates fresh Fusion batteries made it so I can't complain about my battery power! ..........Jim
