    1. If the battery is charged at the end of every race-day, it only takes a half hour to charge. If the battery is completely discharged it will take 10-12 hrs.
  5. Now that the racing season is over how do I store the Ollie?
    1. The best way is to disconnect battery charger by disconnecting the negative battery terminal.It may have be neccessary to crimp down rhe terminal before reconnecting for the next season.
    2. Also DON'T forget to spray WD-40 (or equivalent) into the intakes of the trumpets

    1. The green led means the battery is being charged. The red light means that the charge is being maintained.
  7. What's the grey box under the sequence selection toggle?
    1. That's the computer. I write the programs on my P.C. in an assembly
      language developed for the particular chip. It is compiled and burnt into this OTP (one time programmable) chip. To change the program you pretty much have to change the chip.
