Default Battery Overkill - sensored or un

At what point have you got more battery than you need?

1. How much is to much MAH

2. How much "C" is to much burst rate

3. When have you paid to much for a battery. I guess what I am getting at where is the point when you have bought more battery than your system can use or that you need.

The system that I am planning to get for my losi 8E conversion.

1. Novak HV High-Voltage Pro Brushless ESC Price: $169.99

2. Novak HV 7.5 Brushless Motor w/5mm Shaft Price: $112.99

Should I be looking at a different setup fo my 8E. Is a sensored ESC better than unsensored. I liked the castle creations MM and its the same price but unsensored. Heck I am not even sure whats the difference between sensored an un.

Could somebody help straighten me out before I waste alot of money. I know opnions vary I will take all suggestions and comments with a grain of salt so fire away.

I would go with this set up.

This will be a bullet proof set up that should get you 20min run time with a 13/14 tooth pinnion.
I have been running a RC Product Designs conversion kit on my 8ight for two years. It is the best out there and the Castle MMM combo can be beat.
