I have an old Competition Electronics Turbomatcher 4/35 for matching cells; however, even though it says it has adjustable discharge rate, it only discharges at 10 amps. Anyone have any ideas about fixing it so that the discharge rate can be adjusted down to about 1 amp?

Not sure Woody because my chargers have low amp settings. You could use resistors from a local electronics store or 1157 auto light bulbs and go old school. Your battery (each) should not drop below .9

Not to change the subject or highjack the thread but do most of you guys run a rear wing? I noticed its a big trend it seems. Do they really help or is it for looks?

Yes to the first question K9, and Yes to the second because It creates down force. No trend. However, it also depends on how you drive, agressive or non. I like the wing as it allows me to setup for entering as well as tracking on straights.

A guy down here has them but I couldn't tell you where he got them from. Maybe Jimmy or Terry? They looked sharp the ones I seen did.

Question for eveyone does anyone use can air to blow off dirt or dust? Robert and Todd both suggested a 1 inch paint brush instead. Why?
