Don't worry about it, you can't use that much power anyway.

The Orion 90c lipos were shown at the 2011 toy fair , and according to them they upgraded the material of the cell separators, that's why they could achieve such a high C rating! I guess somebody will have to come up with better wires, and better solder soon if all the battery manufacturers follow suit.......
