Default SCT Lipos?

Looking for good and reasonably priced lipos for racing a Blitz SCT. Your recommendations and input is much appreciated. Was thinking of something in the 50c 2s 5000 mah.

Me and my son both run Blitzs. I purchased 3 Turnigy 2s packs 5000mah. Really please with them. They come with thick 8 gauge cable for great power delivery!

Im running some Orion 5000 mah 30C packs and like them.

Great punch, never even felt one get warm.

Need to watch C ratings on some of the lesser expensive batteries as it is much like false advertisement. Info from quite a few forums anyway...

You should be good with a 5k+ battery as it seems like the SCT like to run with some weight in it too

Im also hearing good things on the Gens ace and the ProTek packs.

The ProTek packs are excellent. Always perfectly balanced, great run time, never felt it get warm (been ran really hard in a 4x4 with a 550 motor), and it provides some great punch.
