Default Battery C Ratings

Question for Casper or Ryan, (or anyone else with input)
I see you both are sponsored by Venom for your batteries. The 5800 they have are at a 70C rating. Question is with your experience at what point, if any is overkill in the C category? What I have noticed as the C rating goes up the mAh goes up along with the weight of the battery. While shopping for batteries I have seen the C rating as high as 100.
Has there been any independent comparisons on the batteries that anyone could refer me to?
Looking forward to hearing input.

C ratings are measured differently between companies... 4wdSCTs require a lot of C rating from the batteries. whatever brand you go with, make sure they rate that battery to handle the 4wdSCT.

If landing hard off a jump to turning 180 degrees could cause the front right to stay under load and retard the rebound of the front left??
I have had the spring retainer cup get pushed over the shock end on a hard impact or landing. Could be the problem

I just switched from Durango to this SCTE and I am in the build process now.

I have acquired a pile ($200+) of good wheel/tires for the Durango but I just remembered that they use that annoying oversized hex.

Do you guys think I could get these to work on the SCTE?

Start with the "latest Dunford setup" on Casper's site. We spent months testing many, many setups, and nothing has been close to this great overall setup. It works most everywhere.

Where did you get the spacers? What size are they besides 2mm? Did you need to use longer screws?

Screw length was fine but needed to dremel/drill the inside as it was a little to tight for the screw
