Start with about a 7.5 and adjust from there. You may find anywhere from 6.8 to 7.5 works for you. 7.3 is very typical. Last track we ran on that I consider "medium sized" 7.3 was the ratio everyone ran.

Small batch of Ener-G 4600's have arrived. We'll begin matching them into packs tomorrow and they should be for sale within the next 2-3 days.

So far the cells look good, excellent runtime and good voltage numbers...a viable alternative to IB cells.

Today I tested and ran our EnerG 4600's. I tried doing a little bit of a worse can scenario care testing at the same time to see if I would run into any problems.

When I assembled the packs I over soldered each battery bar with my iron cranked up to 900..I left the tip on the cells long enough that the battery got warm to the touch, 10-15 seconds. I then went through and reheated each cell after I was done as if to "clean up" my solder joints.

I installed the pack in the car and ran it on the track until it was feeling flatter. I was kind of surprised how fast it was with just the storage charge in them. I pulled the car, and threw the batteries on the charger. Charged at 7 amps, 18mv cut off with a Cellmaster. I didn't over do the amperage because I feel most people now understand charging at above 6 just for club racing is beyond normal.

I ran the pack for 5 practice runs, putting them back on the charger when the car was hot off the track. I also ran three 5 min race runs. The batteries spent the entire night over 100 degrees. My car was fast every run, posting the top fastest lap several times. Batteries felt good, strongest on the 3-4th use, but not really feeling soft after the 8th run. I was having to put about 2800-3200mah back into the packs after each run.

I am going to give the pack to Peter or Garrett to abuse in their own way and report our findings. These batteries look very good.

Yes...everything is better with a mouse and kb.. I've been too busy to keep up on anything, do they have cross platform support now? Are PC people playing with the 360 guys? If so you know who the good players are..
