Where a 4000mah 30c will have 120amps (4 x 30 = 120)
What you have to do is figure out the max continuous amperage your esc and motor need, and go from there.
You said that they are running a 3600 40c (144amps) and a 5000 40c (200amps). My logical guess here would be the the guys running the 3600s are lighter.
Edit: Another big factor in punch would be gearing.
yes good info, but heres the Rub.... THERE IS NO STANDARD TEST FOR DETERMING A 'C' RATING, each company CAN come up with whatever number they wish to use, depending on which one of the many tests to achieve the c rating they use.
#49, #25a, #91, #7, #12 the ones to watch.... UPDATE. #12 is your new AMA GNC #1
