    Never , ever have I found a way to add (real) capacity to ANY lipo cell damaged or otherwise. Gaining the capacity at both ends compared to the sibling cells in a pack isn't really real , but works....

    I'm saying that it is possible to estimate capacity remaining or required capacity to full mark or empty mark by using the open voltage of the pack or cells.

    I guess another way to put it would be...

    Capacity estimate is possible with before and after charge resting voltages only. Or just use the two methods already in place (label and charger display)

    Here's what I think you are asking. If...

    It's very likely that your charger's current is inaccurate. The first thing I'd do is to verify current at max setting.

    The answer to an unbalanced pack is almost ALWAYS the same. Balance the pack. Pack is now balanced.

    The biggest power gain is almost always increasing voltage. If your set-up can handle more voltage then go to the max.

    Mod 1 OR Mod .8

    I've been using Mod 1 on my e-maxx for a few years without trouble. I have a new set-up now where 32 pitch (mod.8) is a much easier way.

    Does 32 pitch hold up well for Monster BL systems? OR am I...

    If I understand the question you are asking for a no load voltage spec for discharged NI type cell?

    If so it can be user's preference , anything from 0-1.2 volts is essentially discharged. As long...

    99% of the time my chargers get left on "max" current because I'm in a hurry.

    It may be easiest to think of this in total voltage. There's a direct correlation between voltage and (power/speed)

    It seems most use around 16-18 volts. 12 volts is going to be slower than...

    You can run it on one 3s pack. It will probably be fine in low gear , but may be too much in high gear. A nice combo would be your 2200 packs on the bec side and the 2000 packs on the other side.

    It depends what you mean by "similar". Those voltages above are my best guess if the packs are truly as labeled. If 7.2, 7.4, and 7.6 are "similar" then sure. If I showed you all three (unlabeled)...

    Jakey or myself can easily overlay a 40C pack with a 20C pack of the same capacity showing a stark contrast between the voltages at 5-50C. Can we post pics here? It isn't traxxas stuff.
