Need help with discharge/charge settings

Sorry to ask such a basic question, but i just picked up a GT POWER 400WATT 20AMP charger/discharger and am not sure of how low/high settings i should set for discharging/charging/cycling my 7cell,8.4 nimh batteries for my slash(one is 5300mah and other is 3000mah).A little worried about hurting them(have only used a fusion delta peak charger w/o discharge).

Charging depends on the cells, but charging at 1C is always safe. So if it's a 5300mah pack, charge it at 5.3 amps.

You can normally discharge at a higher amperage, but I don't know if your charger will go higher or not. If you want to be safe, stick to 1C discharge as well.
