Default 8000mah or 9000mah lipos? questions i have?

i have a new mamba max 5700 system i just put in my rc10t3, and i want to buy 2 lipos a 2s 8000mah or a 2s 9000mah?
I will also run the 2 lipos together makeing it 14.8v for my (in the makeing) brushless losi 8ight T so the lipo batterys will be doing double duty for awhile till i save up more money.....

all the racers at the track have to add weight around 2-3oz's an thats with the 2s 8000mah lipo, an the 2s 9000mah is 2-2.3oz's heavyer so since im moddifying my t3 for lipos ,the 2s 9000mah is only slity bigger an i dont have to add weight to the t3, plus itll have longer runtimes,only thing thats shying me away is it says 20C Constant(120 amps)
30C Sustained(180 amps)
50C Burst(300 amps)
, an the 2s 8000mah says 20C Constant(160 amps)
30C Sustained(240 amps)
50C Burst(400 amps)
will this matter?

also when i run 2 together for my Bushless losi 8ight T will that stuff matter?remeber the 8ight T will be 9-10lb's

btw there maxx amps batteries....

Email or call the Maxamps guy. My friend has talked with him many times and he's very helpful.

That has to be a misprint or a copy from the 6000mah pack. If it's 20C cells used, by definition it would mean 180A Constant, 270 Burst and 450 sustained. Either the C rating is misprinted or the calculations are off. Contact them and they'll clear it up. Great company.

That print is correct. You multiplay the c times the ah to find the current. A 20 c discharge on a 6ah pack would deliver 120 amps of current.

I hope you don't think the packs can take 180 amps. Check out the rpm on the 5700 with 4S too.
