Default Which Lipo?

Hi folks,

I am fairly new to this so please be patient!

I am starting back up racing after an 8 year break and wondered what would be the best Lipo battery for indoor carpet racing?

What is the ideal mah? and 'C' rating?

I have purchased a 2 year old Associated TC5 and have also acquired an LRP 'Sphere' ESC.

Your thoughts please...

The higher the better.
But don't look ad it. Just pick some nice 4000 or higher amp lipo's.
2 cell and 25c or higher.

I got my 50c / 5600mAh Fantom battery tonight. I charged it up and tested it briefly comparing it to the 40c / 3200mAh batteries I had been running in my Hyper 10sc. WOW! I could tell right away that there was more power and a much bigger punch. I was hoping that this pack would make a difference, but I wasn't prepared for how big of a difference it would make. The saying, "You get what you pay for" is true. This battery cost more than others but I believe it is worth it.
