Default performance

I have a RC8 with AE E-conversion kit and the best set up is two 7.4 lipos.

My question is what performance lost will I see running 2 Reedy 704's (20c) vs 2 Reedy 709's (35c) I have a Tekin RX8 2050kv system. My thought is I will have plenty of motor.

what I like about the 704's is I can use deans connectors instead of banana plugs and there is more of risk of plugging it all in backwards.

Remove banana plug reversal risk by setting up one male, one female on each side of the junction. I use Male banana on positive and Female banana on negative on the ESC (to support how they wired the Zippy 3S1P 30C I'm using).

Higher C rating will give you more amp flow with less resistance. So, battery should be cooler if running 35C vs. 20C.

I have two sets of 5000 mah battery's a20C set and a 25C set. There is no appreciable difference in the performance (to me). As you know my motor choice is a little more conservative than yours.
