Default 40c or 50c or 60c

Can you really tell the difference between a 40c, 50c, or 60c battery?

You can feel the punch but i would not believe any manufacturer supplier unless they can supply you a test data sheet with your battery pack .

Check you lap times.
The Higher the C the better the battery.

Every racer should read this if you want to know everything about Lipo batteries:

in theory, if all C's were the same from all manufacturers you would see a difference between 40 and 60, but without a level across the different ranges of products it is hard to follow, but yes I do see a difference between a 2yrs old 30C and a new 60C, but is this because the pack is old or because the C rating is higher??

With new packs being advertise at 70 and 90C or more, it is easy to ask the guys who use them what do they think about them, I curently use IP 5800 60C for 10.5t boosted racing, and they are perfect for this (do not need higher mA for a 5 minute race and bigger batteries are usually heavier too)

Hope this helps
