The Orion 4800's fit without shaving but it's a snug fit. The SMC's 5000's require's shaving. Currently I am using SMC batteries. Both batteries are killer IMO People seem to want to bench race the "C" rating now-a-days (is that a word
) but the open mod at the Reedy was won using Orion 4800's and they are rated at 15C. Personal preference is what you should go for. Even though I currently have SMC I still favor the Orion's because of the cleaner look. The SMC 400 will fit right in without any shaving along with the Orion 3800.
