My son races 4 cell 1600 spec legends, I use 4 amps with a .056 cut off on my Pitt Bull. I use the .056 to heat them up, I read somewhere the new Nimh have to hit 125 deg. to be fully charged.

rowle 1jt..You are right they are Nicd...I thought the reason Trinty changed from 1400's to 1600's was to start using Nimh cells...what a rip off!

As with all Nicads....Bring them all the way down, and dead short them. If you are running 4 minute races, go ahead and charge at 6 amps for the extra voltage. Charge at 5 if you are running long races.

I'm using the 1600 Spec. Charging at 6.5a and I discharge at 30a. Discharging that hi gives the battery memory to dump the juice faster for more zap. Running 4 min runs..have plenty left after the run :thumbsup: (20 turn stinger)...M

Charge at 6 amps discharge at 30 dead short.you can use the torpedo to bump with it seems to lower the internal resisitance somewhat for a more punchy feeeling.
