Is the 30amp discharge a huge advantage against the 16x5???
Not that I've tried it, but from what other guys in this forum tells:
20 amp discharge is good for stock, 30 for mod.
I've been told, that if you discharge at 10 or less amps, your packs will loose punch...
Consider this: How often do you discharge and how much? At race meetings, there will be more discharging, but during practise sessions, you often ran the car till it slows down, and this is basically a discharge
Personallt, I race stock, and I'm only at 5 bigger race events pr. year, so I'm mainly discharging the packs while racing. So I choosed to stay at 20 amps. Personally, I also find that this aint too stressing on the batts.
There's 4 ways of battery maintenance:
1) Getting most performance at the cost of life span (sponsored guys).
2) A more mid-way and conservative way, where you aim for reasonably pewrformance and good life-span.
3) Aiming for lifespan, on the cost of performance.
4) No maintenance at all, at the cost of life-span AND performance.
I'm on number 2.
