Sorry to dig this up, but is this statement still true or have test/studies concluded that the TP 5200 50c would be better?

Test studies? You realize this is an RC racing forum right? Test studies? LMFAO.

Test or sstudies to break it down for you. And to be honest everyone around here takes racing and all the aspects of it pretty seriously. I don't know if you haven't realized that. So it was a legitimate question to ask if anyone has found that statement to be proven wrong or not.

If you didn't know the answer you'd be better off just not saying anything.

the theory i heard about 40c batteries being better than 50c batteries, is that the extra resistance in the 40c batteries generates heat in the battery and keeps the temperature in the optimal range therefore keeping voltage up. seems counter-intuitive (aka weird) but keeping batteries warm has been proven to improve voltage and overall performance.

So if I understand correctly go with a 40c over a 50c? Then as far as Thunder Power and Fantom, does it matter which to go with, are they both the same?

let me add something to that. this is in lower current stock racing. 13.5 and 17.5 winds. for mod racing the lower resistance of the 50c is what you want, but let add this disclaimer: im just restating what i have read elsewhere on these forums. this is not from personal experience.
