    Fully discharged NiMH

    What is a reason to fully discharge NiMH before charging? NiMH has no memory effect.

    I don't know of any... I actually suggest NOT to fully discharge a NiMh as that is a good way to ruin a cell.

    NiMh does have a slight memory effect, though.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    It would be nice to see Traxxas address the issue ! The page on Nickel cells care does indeed say drive your vehicle until it won't move any more. That goes against what pretty much the entire industry says from what most of us think ! I personally emailed tech support and some TRX employees about that page and never got a response.
