Questions?? Ofna/Hobao Hyper 7: PillowBall Vs C-Hub suspension

So a while back a friend of mine gave me his electric converted (I'm posting in the nitro forum because it was originally nitro, let me know if this is the wrong place) Hyper 7 PBS and I have been having a blast. After working out some of its issues (my friend has basically admitted he didn't do any maintenance and the guy who did the conversion didn't do a very good job) it's been a fun thing to practice with at the local track.
The other day I was talking to a guy at the track about my car and he told me he had an old hyper 7 laying around that he'd let me have for parts.
This other car has the C-hub suspension on it, so that makes me wonder:
What's the difference between them and which one should I put on my car?

I know that one is not better 100% of the time because both systems are still in use. Tekno, Serpent, and Team Losi use C-hubs while Team Associated, Mugen, and ARRMA use PBS on the front with a conventional setup on the rear. Does that mean PBS is objectively worse on the rear? Or is it just marginally better and usually not worth the extra cost of manufacture? Should I swap out the rear suspension to match the setup of these modern cars? Or is the suspension setup in a way that means I should only use one or the other?

So here's what I was hoping you could tell me:
  1. Advantages and disadvantages of both
  2. Is a half and half setup a good or bad idea
  3. which one do you prefer
