what do you use to discharge your mini t batteries?

if you use a light bar, how many bulbs are in the bar?

I run mine!!! Until is it unresponsive.
With a light bar I would use not more than 5 lights. that is a 10 amp draw. 3 would probably be safer.
Are you using Nimh batteries? If so you do not need to discharge them.

We were drawing about 3 to 4 amps whe we ran them offroad this summer so we have been discharging at 5 amps after races.
We are charging at 1 amp what are others doing, A couple of guys tried 3 amps and they were dumping 1100 - 6 cell packs unmatched in 5 minute races.
Thanks John Schoenauer

DJ - I was told by the guy at Ballistic to discharge them after use.........

I have been running the packs until they run out, but when I put my 4 bulb discharge bar on it, they won't even light up.

I haven't raced it yet - nowhere to race around here for mini t's (NC)

I have noticed that my Peak Racing pack false peaks and I one get a couple of minutes of run time out of it - haven't tried my Ballistic pack yet
