Default Turnigy 8 setup?

How do you guys have your Turnigy 8's setup to charge your 500 batteries? Will this charge as it comes or do you have to make adjustments for the capacity of the battery. I initially hooked it up to a car battery until I got my power supply and noticed that the voltage was higher than 22.2V. Also it show a mah cutoff of 5000mah my batts are 3000mah and 2650mah.

Also what is the max charge rates on the Zippy's? Thanks...

Charge your batteries at 1c. 3000 ma battery = 3.0 amps on the charger, 2800 ma battery = 2.8 amps on the charger etc, etc , etc. Also, use the balance cycle on them. Hope this helps. The 5000 ma max is a protection value. Should the charger reach 5000 ma while charging the battery, it will end the charging cycle.
