I topped up my packs last night at 20 amps... Actually it would only go to 17.3, but 908 mah in 8 minutes....

Most 30c packs from what I've seen can do 2c safely....

I should clairfy my "you should be charging @ 5amps" statement, I was assuming you have 5000mah or better batteries. I should have said "You should be charging with a rate of 1c at least, which is likely 5 amps"

If we were to run triple A's we couldn't run bump ups.
This is because we would have to run the first a-main at the start of the program, second in the middle and third being the final race.

Triple A-Mains will be only run on big races where time permits.

Having 2 or more batteries for your car is a must. Especially if you want to run a lot of practice in the morning.

if u run triple a main run them for less time like 7 mins but dont forget u have a 45 min a main and nice long buggy b and a so u would have along time to charge ur batts also who cares about bump ups with triple a mains its some incentive to get ur gear up to par if u want more run time
