i'd say go with the smc i'm about to order a few after christmas time. i have read good things about them plus they are decently priced i think and from what i hear anything over 20-30c isnt a necessity. i dont know what a 17.5 is but i'm sure what ive been told will apply to whatever

With a 17.5(stock motor), to me battery is important, Yes there would be a big differnce between 28c and 45c. The 45c with have alot more punch then a 28c. I'd go with the Orion 45c or SMC cmaxx 40c for stock class.

I always get highest C's i can. But I run many different classes and I never know what is in the future. The motor will not pull more than it can. I just like the headroom and options

A higher c rating will give the Motor more power and yes it will be faster! For stock
(17.5) A higher c rating is used alot because Mod classes(10.5 and down) have so much power already, you wont be able to tell as much compared to a stock 17.5 motor. I would go with a 30c or higher rating if you plan on running 17.5 or 13.5.
