It most likely needs to be cycled and then balanced. I found that after several runs that the battery starts to feel a little flat, and if you cycle it on the Turbo35 and hit it at 35 amps it seems to "clear" the battery. Don't know if thats the right terminology or if thats what it's even doing, but it seems to work. Depending on how old it is though, they do loose a little voltage.

um. few months away from year old. i was thinking it was just old. power seems decent, however just running 90ft track. figured id ask before the open wheel to see if it was just dieing off or if it needed something. and yes been balanced few times though year and then every time i charged the past few weeks on friends turbo 35

Have you ever cycled it @35 amps? I found that the batteries do seem to build a little bit of a memory, and discharging it tends to clear it.
