30c might be a bit much.
I never go more than 20 on a starter box.

Thats exactly what I was thinking but I am not sure what them big motors can take. If it does work it will make the lifespan of the motor short. There are other batteries on ebay they are a few more buks but better not to blow the motor. I guarauntee you run that battery on a 2 550 motor box and smoke 1st time you try to start the car. You could run that battery in E8th scale buggy short runtimes but it will work I use 30C.

Use it........ it will be fine......... all the 30C means is that the battery is capable of a higher discharge rate than the 20C.....the 30C is basically a higher quality battery... the motor is only gonna pull what it can. Think of it this way... you take the cheap ass stock bettery out of your 1:1 car and put in a nice high dollar HIGH CCA(cold cranking amp) sears diehard and all it does it work that much better..........the battery isnt being stressed and everything works better cause it has a better battery to suck off of. Buy the highest C and mah rating you can afford. The 20C will work fine either way though. 1 motor or 2 it doesnt matter.......
