Arrow LIPO BATTERY QUESTION

I am running a Novak Mongoose 10.5 and 8.5 for a high speed run and I need to know what battery would be the best without damaging the motor.

I have looked at a few lipos such as the
DualSky 5400 7.4v 22C 118.8A $80.00
TrakPower 5400 7.4v 16C 86.4A $119.00
SMC Lighting 5400 7.2v unknown amps $129.00

If you have a better idea please let me know, Thanks

All those batteries are the same voltage... well, the 7.2 one is a tick less, but hardly significant... if those motors can handle 7.4 volts, then any of those batteries will be fine.

The C rating or current capability of a battery doesn't matter in terms of hurting a motor... the C rating or current capability is a measure of how much a particular battery can put out... but NO battery will put out more than the motor tries to pull from it.
