Default Newbie battery tech question

So I am interested in 3cell top fuel electric.

I have a drag race concepts rail on the way

a novak BALLISTIC 3.5T/10500KV motor

13mm SINTERED TUNNING ROTOR swap

Mamba Max speed pro

My question......

What 3cell LiPo should I go with??????

Also....Charger.

Looking at the TP610C AC/DC

Thoughts?

I was thinking a Thunder Power G6 "Pro Race" 3S Hard Case Li-Poly Battery w/Deans Connector 65C (11.1V/5300mAh)
[THP5300-3SPR65D]

Or

Thunder Power G4 Pro Race 50C Series LiPo TP5200-3SPR50 5200mAh 3-Cell/3S 11.1V

Any thoughts?????

In my opinion....

1. The charger looks good, charges up to 10 amps, should work good.

2. I would think that for Drag Racing, short runs, and wanting to get
power to the ground.... A.S.A.P.

You could use a battery with a lower Mah (run time), but as much PUNCH
(meaning "C" Rating) as you can get. So you could most likely save on
some cost by going for a lower Mah, But, get the largest C Rating you
can find.

I could be wrong on the battery theory.... so, wait for some other guys
to chime in....

I don't think it will work.

10500rev/V and 11.1V equals more than 100'000revs/min. You will immediatly destroy the bearings and the rotor.

7.4V is more than enough for a 3.5 motor.
