Why run a small lipo or even a medium size and then add a bunch of weight

just on the weight...
there can be quite a big difference between packs
eg. LRP 5300 is about 40gms heavier than an IP3800 pack

You need to post which TC your running for a better answer. Short answer is, the most mah pack that will fit in your chassis. Less weight to add, more punch at race end.

Thanks for the answers guy's i know about the mah and c ratings and i have seen some 35c lipo at rcmart's website but i have also read that some manufactures are better than others and they put any old ratings on there packs just after the best performing packs out there. my car is a cyclone wc

Intellect 3800s dont have enough capacity or a high enough C rating to run modified touring low wind motors (3.5T) on large tracks.
For this reason, I have switched to LRP 28C 5300s and will have some track test results after the weekend.
