Last night I took 1st in the Stock A-Main which was just awesome, car was flying and I drove flawlessly through the main. Qualifiers were a little rough but it all came together in the main. I pulled into first place within the first five laps and just held it. Anyhow before the main another driver had forgot to charge his pack and was all flustered about not having a battery ready to go. So I just happen to have one of my older IB3600 "Practice Packs" charged up from earlier that I never ran. Just had to peek it real quick and I let him throw it in. He just about died! He said "were in the hell did you get that battery from?" He was overshooting most of his turns and was still faster then he had been all night! The new track layout is VERY technical and I guess all that extra punch really helped out. I told him they came from you and gave him your phone number and then went on to tell him the pack he was running had a LOT of time on it. Needless to say it's still ok but far from were it was when I got it from you.... I was laughing the whole time!

This TC stuff has a HUGE learning curve from racing the trucks in the dirt! Now that I'm getting the hang of everything and starting to drive the car I'll be needing to update all my packs and motors

Hey guys.

Im wondering whats Tony opnion on the best system to take care of ure batteries in terms of cell longevity.

For 1 to 2 weeks storage its best to left some charge in it?

tray them to 0.7v or discharge tray to 0 volt a few minutes before charge?

How much time between charge and run them? I know they performe better if they go directly from charger to the car, but then the pack gets really hot (heat from+heat from running them)

Thanks in advance!

If you going to store your batteries I would put 500 seconds of charge in them. When you do get back to racing just discharge them and tray them down to 0.9 and your good to go.

You may have to check your peck detection on your charger.
If you have a temp gage, charge your cells up to 120 degrees.
In other words if your peck detection is set properly your cells should be done at about 120 deprees + or - .

Yes, i dont let my cells go above 50 celcius (thats 122 fahrenheit). I was just wondering how much time u let them rest be4 runing the pack.

In the summer, where i live, it seems to takes for ever for the pack to cool down (right now max temp is at 40 celsius---> thats 104)

I never run my packs more then once per race day.
If your short on batteries you can use them twice but you will need to completely cool them down before you discharge them and try them.
If you find that your batteries are charged long before your going to run them, say 15 to 20 minutes you should repeak them but only once.
