What's the general consensus on discharging these IB cells? Novak Smart Tray? Integy Zero-Thirty? Novak Flatliner? Dead short or not? What works?

I discharge them on a integy box, well i did till mine just quit. Race day before running. I tray them on my old trinity trays before charging. Seems to work pretty good so far. I should have two jrxs ready to rock here real soon. Well all but electronics, only go enough to do one car at a time for now. But, I may leave one a dedicated carpet car for further endeavors. As of now Im planning on going to Enid on the 12th for some 19t sedan.

Its 90% 19t. On the 12th we're running 19t as far as I know unless everyone gets froggy and decides to run mod. For your packs ditch the Novak stuff. Discharge them on a Integy zero-thirty for 20-30 mins then charge them up. When your done racing discharge them down to 5.4 volts and store them until the next week. Rinse and repeat.

Billy - How are you liking the Losi? I haven't looked at the car much, but it looks like it would be a certified pain to solder in the batteries.
