    Question about charging

    Should I completely discharge my battery before charging or just wait til it's pretty low?

    Whether NiMH or LiPo, no you should not completely discharge your pack. With NiMH packs, run your vehicle until you feel it slowing, remove the battery pack, and get it charged up sooner rather than later. There will be no ill effect if you do not get to that "slowing down" point and charge the pack anyway. Store NiMH fully charged.
