Default 1/12 LiPo Battery Demands

Is there a performance gain when going from 20C to 40C in 1/12 with a 17.5 motor? Please explain.

I went back to back with them at Vegas and didn't see a difference for myself in stock . . . I just like the bullet connectors and extra capacity on the 40C better.

I ran SMC 4900 40c's yesterday right after I ran SMC 4000 20c's. I was actually slower in the stock 1/12 using the 4900 40c's. The 4900's also weigh more but I dont think thats why it was slower. They just seem to start dropping sooner than the 4000's do.

in stock 1/12 I don't think you will see the difference between 20c and 40c. but the difference between capacity will be noticed mid race to the end. I am sure that the discharge on the high cap batts will fall off less by the end of 8 min.
